The Effect of Inclusion Level and Time on Digestibility of Starch for Common Carp (Cyprinus carpio, Cyprinidae)

Abstract:

The effect of the level of inclusion and time on the digestibility of cornstarch for common carp (Cyprinus carpio, Cyprinidae) was determined. Raw cornstarch was included into a casein-based reference diet at four levels of inclusion (10, 20, 30 and 40%) and digestibility coefficients calculated over two time points (days 6-10 and days 13-17). Starch digestibility was significantly affected by the level of inclusion, being higher at the 30% (90.4%) and 40% (94.2%) inclusion levels than at the 10% (77.3%) inclusion level. Time had no significant effect on starch digestibility.
