An experimental model is described that was used for assessing in vivo effects in fowls of exogenous enzyme supplementation on the degradation of plant cell walls to metabolizable monosaccharide residues. It was based on tube-feeding U-14C-labelled cell-wall substrates, cellulose, spinach (Spinacia oleracea) or Festuca, with and without enzyme treatments, and monitoring recovery of 14C radioactivity in exhaled carbon dioxide and excreta in the following 8 h. Normal digestion of cell-wall… CONTINUE READING
