Dietary inclusion of high oleic soybean oil for fattening pigs, has been shown to improve growth performance and dorsal fat thickness.
Feeding fattening pigs a fat supplement is a common practice in the pig sector and can result in improved feed efficiency and reduced intake; however, dietary lipids also play a key role in determining the composition of pork.
High oleic soybean oil is a potential source of fat for pig diets due to its high oleic acid content, considering that it is the one that most influences the quality of fat.
The objectives of the present study were to evaluate the effects of the inclusion of different levels of high oleic soybean oil on growth performance and carcass characteristics.
Materials and Methods
Results and Discussion
From the obtained results researchers established that dietary inclusion of high oleic soybean oil represents a feasible alternative for improving growth performance and dorsal fat thickness in fattening pigs. High oleic soybean oil presents itself as a reliable source of dietary fat due to its high oleic acid content, considering that this type of fatty acid has one of the greatest influences over fat quality.
