Abstract

The significance to health and intestinal development of non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) and resistant starch (RS) in the diet of the weaner pig is presently unclear, although there have been suggestions that certain levels of dietary NSP would be beneficial (1). This study investigated the influence of NSP derived from lupin (L. angustifolius) and RS on the performance and digestive physiology of piglets in the first 10 days after weaning.
