Abstract

Diets based on cooked white rice fed to weaned piglets have a higher apparent ileal digestibility of starch than diets based on wheat (Pluske et al., 2007). The diets based on cooked white rice have used predominately animal sources of protein, however in Europe these are banned or excluded by retailer's specifications (except for milk proteins), and plant proteins are widely used instead. This study examined the interactive effects of cereal types and plant protein types on the apparent ileal digestibility of protein and carbohydrates to test the proposition that suitable sources of plant protein could ensure high digestibility coefficients in the small intestine.
