Increased carbohydrate fermentation, compared with protein fermentation, could benefit gut health. In two in vitro experiments, the effect of carbohydrate-rich feed ingredients on fermentation characteristics of ileal chyme from pigs was assessed, using the cumulative gas production technique. Ingredients of the first experiment included gums, inulins, pectins, transgalacto-oligosaccharides, lactose and xylan. In the second experiment, a gum, pectin and transgalacto-oligosaccharides were added at different starting weights, to determine their effects on fermentation characteristics of chyme, in relation to differences in the carbohydrate concentrations. In comparison to fermentation of chyme alone, added carbohydrates led to higher total gas production (p < 0.05), faster maximum rate of gas production (except for xylan) (p < 0.05), and a decreased branched-chain fatty acids to straight chain fatty acids ratio (BCR) (p < 0.05). In the second experiment, for all carbohydrate ingredients, the BCR decreased with increasing starting weights (p < 0.05). If these supplemented dietary carbohydrates were to reach the terminal ileum of the living animal, carbohydrate fermentation in the large intestine could be stimulated, which is known to have beneficial effects on host health.
