ABSTRACT
The hypolipidemic effect of adding different types of dietary fibrę (Arbocel R, Vitacel AF guar gum) to diets for growing-finishing pigs was evaluated on 24 animals. The best results in lowering total serum cholesterol and serum triacylglycerols (2.40 and 0.69 mmol/l, respectively) were obtained in the group with guar gum. In this group, caecal propionic acid production was significantly higher (43.5 µmol/g of caecal content) when compared with the groups given Arbocel R and Vitacel AF.
