Nutritional utilization of wheat bran and beetroot fibre in germfree rats and in rats inoculated with human flora



Nutritional utilization of wheat bran and beetroot fibre in germfree rats and in rats inoculated with human flora



Sciences des Aliments 11(2): 397-408



Male Fischer 344 rats 2.5 months old were germfree (GF) or were inoculated with a complex human flora (CHF) and were given a diet with 10% wheat bran or 10 or 20% beetroot fibre. Addition of a moderate amount of fibre to the diet had no effect on microflora or on body weight, food intake or food efficiency. In GF rats, faecal excretion was greater with beet fibre and increased with increased beet fibre. Digestibility of DM decreased significantly when beet fibre was increased from 10 to 20%.
