Effects of Supplemental dietary starch on production and reproductive characteristics in postpartum dairy cowsDownload
This study evaluated the effects of dietary starch on productive and reproduction parameters of postpartum dairy cows. Three diets were fed, with increasing starch levels from calving until 70 days in milk. Treatment had no effect on dry matter intake, energy balance, specific metabolic hormones...
Effects of dietary starch on ovarian physiology, intra-follicular milieu of the preovulatory follicle, and plasma metabolites in postpartum dairy cowsDownload
Effects of dietary starch content on ovarian dynamics in lactating dairy cows and intrafollicular milieu of preovulatory follicles were studied. Diets containing two levels of starch (29.2% and 19.1%) were fed until 84 d post-calving. Diets had no effect on the interval from calving-to-ovulation,...
Oligosaccharides, compounds that are composed of 2–10 monosaccharide residues, are major carbohydrate sources in habitats populated by lactobacilli. Moreover, oligosaccharide metabolism is essential for ecological fitness of lactobacilli. Disaccharide metabolism by lactobacilli is well...
Role of starch chemistry in the kinetics of nutrient absorption, endocrine profile, and intestinal health in swineDownload
Starch is a major source of energy for monogastric species. Although starch digestibility is understood, the role of starch chemistry on nutrient absorption, endocrine function and gut health is not. Therefore, the objective was to characterize the role of starches with a range in amylose content...
The objective of this research was to investigate the impact of variation in starch morphology and molecular structure among starches isolated from triticale, wheat, corn and barley (normal, waxy, and high-amylose genotypes) on amylolysis. Native starch granules in their unfractionated and...
Two studies examined the effects of 3 commercial cat diets varying in glycemic index (GI) based on ingredient composition and starch content (34.1, 29.5, and 23.6% NFE for high, medium, and low GI, respectively) on metabolizable energy (ME), indirect calorimetry and blood measurements. In Study...
Structural and Biochemical Changes in Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L.) Seeds during Germination and Early Seedling Growth. II. Storage Triacylglycerols and CarbohydratesDownload
Abstract: Triacylglycerols (TAGs) comprised 59% of the total storage reserve in mature loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seeds; 80% of these TAGs were stored in the megagametophyte. The TAG breakdown in the seedling was initiated before radicle emergence (during germination), while in the...
The role of starch and fiber composition on nutrient flow, site and extent of nutrient digestion, and microbial profiles in pigsDownload
Starch is the main energy substrate for monogastrics, including swine. Physico- chemical properties of starch and the cereal grain matrix can change the kinetics of digestion. Objectives of this thesis were to enhance the understanding of how the physico-chemical properties of purified starch and...
