Pectin, guar gum, transgalactosylated oligosaccharide and glucose were estimated as substrate for hindgut fermentation by measuring the volume of gas released from a 1 ml scale batch culture using rat cecal contents. The amount of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) in cultures of glucose and pectin was also measured. The amount of SCFA (Y mumol/culture) or… CONTINUE READING
