Abstract

The concept of nutrient synchrony depends on supplying dietary glucose and amino acids (AA) in a synchronised manner to increase nitrogen (N) utilisation efficiency by minimising the energy-dependent conversion of certain AA to glucose or glucose to AA (van den Borne et al., 2007). The hypothesis tested was that the whole body N retention rate would be limited in pigs fed a nutrient asynchronised diet compared to pigs fed a synchronous diet.
