|Title:||The inhibition of nutrient digestion by wheat pentosans||Contributor(s):||Choct, Mingan (author) ; Annison, Geoffrey (author)||Publication Date:||1992||DOI:||10.1079/BJN19920014||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/14071||Abstract:||Two pentosan-rich fractions (water-extractable, WEP, and alkali-extractable, AEP) were isolated from a wheat milling by-product. When both WEP and AEP were added to a commercial-type broiler diet the apparent metabolizable energy (AME), nitrogen retention, feed utilization and growth of broilers were significantly ('P'≺ 0.001) depressed. These depressions were closely correlated ('P' ≺ 0.001) to the level of pentosans in the diets. At the highest level of inclusion of pentosans (equivalent to 40 g arabinoxylans as AEP/kg) the ileal digestibilities of starch, protein and lipid were decreased by 14.6, 18.7 and 25.8% respectively.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||British Journal of Nutrition, 67(1), p. 123-132||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||0007-1145
