Abstract:
Four different therapeutic diets viz., T1 (control - 15.7% CP and 4.09% CF) T2, T3 and T4 of high protein (21.90% CP) high fibre (11.28% CF), high protein (21.73% CP) medium fibre (8.23% CF), and control diet supplemented with choline chloride (15.72% CP and 3.99% CF) were prepared and subjected to in vitro enzymatic hydrolysis and in vitro fermentation characteristics, in which in vitro dry matter digestibility and gas production were estimated. The dry matter digestibility was significantly higher (p<0.05) in T1 (84.30 ± 0.97) and T4 (84.80 ± 0.41). Gas production were significantly higher in T2 (16.82 ± 0.88 ml/g DM) followed by T3 (10.76 ± 0.64) was observed. The overall DM digestibility of all the diets was more than 75%, which showed overall higher digestibility of all nutrients in the prepared therapeutic diets.
