Digestion and absorption of carbohydrates in fowl and events through perinatal development



Digestion and absorption of carbohydrates in fowl and events through perinatal development



Journal of Nutrition 115(5): 665-674



Starch is the main carbohydrate in the food of poultry. Starch granules are digested by pancreatic alpha -amylase in the small intestine. Intestinal villi have enterocytes that project microvilli with a fibrous glycocalyx from the surface. These fine structures are envisaged to entrap water that is mixed with mucin from nearby goblet cells to form the "unstirred water layer".
