Effect of experimental zinc deficiency on protein and feed efficiency ratios in guinea-pigs



Effect of experimental zinc deficiency on protein and feed efficiency ratios in guinea-pigs



Indian Journal of Nutrition and Dietetics 29(11): 342-344



The effects of zinc deficiency on the protein efficiency ratio (PER) and feed efficiency ratio (FER) were studied in 33 male weanling albino guineapigs. The guineapigs were fed a Zn-deficient or a Zn-adequate diet (1.25 and 50 ppm respectively) for 28 days. Body weight gain decreased in the Zn-deficient group. FER was significantly less in the Zn-deficient group (0.26) than the control group (0.36).
