Large White pigs, 150 days old, with duodenal re-entrant cannulae and ileal cannulae were fed on diets containing 3.6 or 8% crude fibre (CF). Concentration of plant fibre and its components were estimated in various parts of the digestive tract. Carbohydrates included in the nitrogen-free extract were 96% or more digested and absorbed in the upper segments of the digestive tract, regardless of the CF content of the diet.
