Effect of low protein and low energy diet on physiological status and digestibility of F344 rats


Effect of low protein and low energy diet on physiological status and digestibility of F344 rats



Experimental Animals 51(5): 485-491

A long-term raising study was carried out on male F344/DuCrj rats with 3 low protein (crude protein (CP); 14.5, 11.5, 8.5%) and low energy (digestible energy (DE); 2.0 kcal/g) diets from 4 to 104 weeks of age. A total of 120 rats were used in the study. In rats fed the 8.5% CP diet, the body weight and digestible crude protein (DCP) consumption at 10 weeks of age were lower (P<0.05), but the body weight at 50 weeks of age was higher (P<0.05) than in the other groups.
