Abstract

1. The effects of graded dietary concentrations of cholestyramine (CSTY, a bile acid binding polymer), which prevents micelle formation and bile acid reabsorption, on the lipid and energy metabolism of chicks given diets containing different dietary concentrations of medium chain triacylglycerol (MCT) and long chain triacylglycerol (LCT) were investigated. 2. MCT- or LCT-supplemented diets containing 100 or 200 g oil/kg diet and 0, 10 or 20 g CSTY kg were fed to 7 d old chicks for 10 d. As dietary CSTY concentration increased, a reduction in the metabolisable energy value was observed for both dietary lipid sources. Consequently, fat and energy retentions were also reduced as the dietary CSTY content increased.
