Digestibility and digestible and metabolisable energy of cane sugar (Saccharum officinarum L.) and yam (Dioscorea alata) for pigs


Digestibility and digestible and metabolisable energy of cane sugar (Saccharum officinarum L.) and yam (Dioscorea alata) for pigs



Revista Instituto Colombiano Agropecuario 8(2): 145-156



In 2 metabolism trials with groups of 5 weaned pigs diets had cane sugar or yam (Dioscorea alata) and 0.5% Cr2O3. The basal ration was 500 g of a basal diet with 39% protein and piglets got 250 or 400 g of sugar or yam. The apparent digestibility of sugar was 104% with gross energy (GE) 4.037 kcal/g. Digestible energy (DE) was 3.899 kcal/g, 96.6% of GE. Calculated metabolizable energy was 3.692 kcal/g.
