Abstract

Present PhD thesis was realised at the Department of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Production (University of Napoli, Federico II, Italia) in order to study the functional properties of dietary fiber fractions (soluble and insoluble) in nutrition of different mono-stomached species. With this aim more than 30 different feedstuffs were evaluated using several analytic techniques (Weende, Van Soest and Prosky) (Chapter 2). Thereafter seems interesting to underline that main of the tested substrates are by-products and could represent economical and readily available nutrient sources. Moreover, in order define the functional activities and the potential health benefits some of these feedstuffs were tested also in vitro using the cumulative gas production technique (IVGPT). Tree different trials (Chapters 3 - 4 - 5) of IVGPT were carried out using as inoculum faeces from adult dog, swine and cat, respectively. The comparison of chemical data and fermentation parameters was important to better define the potential functionality of each tested substrate in order to identify new functional ingredients. The obtained results offer a good perspectives for the possibility of using several less known materials (e.g. chestnuts, citrus by-products, legume and fruit fibers) in the formulation of diets. The study evidenced also the specific carbohydrates composition of ingredients, such as seeds of pshyllium, line and hemp, usually utilized only for their fatty acids profile. Each tested feedstuff presented specific characteristics, which allow it to be useful in specific stage of life of omnivores and carnivores species, including human.
