Implications This review provides relevant information on the utilization of dietary fiber (DF) by pigs and its effects on gut physiological functions, microbiota and health. This review delivers in-depth insight on both negative and positive effects of different fibers inclusion in swine diets. The DF lowers nutrient digestibility in swine. But, the fermentation of DF in the gut affects positive ...

The intestinal mucosa possesses an extensive surface area and is exposed to a large and diverse number of microorganisms and potentially antigenic proteins throughout the lifetime of a pig. The mucosal epithelium is capable of assimilating vital nutrients while simultaneously excluding ingested pathogens and other harmful materials. In mature swine, an array of gastrointestinal defense processes a ...

Introduction One of the characteristics that influence the quality of meat as perceived by the consumer is the amount of intramuscular fat (IMF), which is located within the structure of muscle. In terms of taste, IMF is well correlated with pork acceptability. The threshold level of IMF needed for optimal eating quality of pork proposed is between 2.2 and 3.4% (Font-i-Furnols et al., 2012) ...

ETEC causes significant morbidity and mortality, resulting in a large economic loses in the porcine industry. One of the most common ETEC in swine is serotype 0149 which carries the K88 (F4) adhesin that enables the attachment of ...

Weaning as currently practiced represents one of the most critical periods in the raising of pigs. It is characterized by a diminution in feed consumption, leading to a state of severe anorexia, an increased sensitivity to digestive problems or microbial infections, and a slow down of growth. The change in the nutrient substrate also brings with it major modifications in intestinal function, influ ...
