Advantages for monogastrics animals
• Improvements in feed conversion rate and increased digestive use of
starch, since glucose is more efficient than the volatile fatty acids produced in the large intestine.
• Enhanced palatability of feed and contribution to the increase of solid food intake and the gradual replacement of lacto-replacements.
• Increase in average daily gain..
• Less anti-diarrhoea medication because of the smaller amount of fermentable substrate reaching the large intestine and increased lactic acid production in the stomach.
• Smaller tails, resulting in more uniform litters.
• Improved energy value as a result of increased fat digestibility.
• Increased digestibility of protein as a consequence of the reduction of anti-nutritional factors and protein denaturation.
