Abstract

Antisecretory factor (AF) is an endogenous protein that has shown to be a potent inhibitor of intestinal fluid secretion and inflammation. AF content in sows' milk is important for protection against neonatal diarrhoea in suckling piglets. Feeding specific hydrothermally processed cereals (HPC) has proven to increase the plasma level of AF and to be helpful in counteracting diarrhoea in domestic animals. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of an AF-inducing diet on piglets' growth performance and intestinal mucosa
