Investigations on the fermentability
of maize cobs produced variable results.
These same effects have also been seen among probiotic research, pointing to the fermentability
of the hemicellulose derived sugar from steam exploded softwood (Douglas-fir).
With the help of enzyme-rich rumen fluid extracted from the digestive tracts of dairy cows, the method can quickly predict the fermentability
, or ethanol-producing potential, of a given cultivar.
Such information allows ethanol plants to optimize efficiency and output by providing an indicator of the fermentability
of corn at the front end of their process.
of polysaccharides by mixed human faecal bacteria in relation to their suitability as [kappa]-forming laxatives.
The launch range included: C*Bio-Gel 11300, a native maize starch with a relatively high viscosity; C*Bio-Gel Instant 11400, a pregelatinised maize starch used to increase viscosity; C*Bio-Dex 11200, a dextrose monohydrate sweetener with a significant cooling effect, high osmolarity and high fermentability
Its findings determined both Ambrotose complex and Advanced Ambrotose powder exhibited good selective fermentability
throughout the entire colon, positive and selective bifidogenic effects and also demonstrated the possibility of enhancing species belonging to Bacteroidetes.
In the LO and PO diets with reduced OM content and possible reduction of feed fermentability
, a lower concentration of VFA was expected (Harvatine and Allen, 2006).
