Oilseed meal processing affects protein digestion kinetics and metabolics organ load of growing pigs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingAbstract

Abstract

An experiment was conducted to determine the effects of processing of soybean meal (SBM) and rapeseed meal (RSM) on crude protein (CP) digestibility along the small intestine, N solubility in chyme, and the effect of post-absorptive amino acid (AA) availability on metabolic organ load. Fiftyfour growing pigs were fed 1 of 6 experimental diets containing SBM, processed SBM (pSBM), RSM, processed RSM (pRSM), or pSBM and pRSM supplemented with crystalline AA. Pigs were
slaughtered at 40 kg, organ weight was recorded and chyme was collected at 3 locations along the small intestine. The CP digestibility was reduced due to processing, which could not be explained by an increased amount of insoluble N as fraction of total N. The weight of the kidneys, pancreas, liver, and small intestine was affected by processing and supplementation with crystalline AA.
