Treatment ID:TR002376
Treatment Summary:A commercial pelleted (1.5 mm) trout feed (INICIO 917, BioMar A/S) based on a mixture of fish and plant protein and containing 47% crude protein, 20% crude lipid, 18% carbohydrates (NFE), 1.2% fibre, 8.5% ash, and 1.1% phosphorus was used for preparation of the diets. A β-1,3;1,6-glucan (purity: 81.6%; mean particle size: 37.7 µm; supplementary table S2) purified from yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) (Biorigin, Brazil) was supplemented to this diet at varying doses: 0 g, 1 g, 10 g, and 50 g β-glucan were added to 1 kg of INICIO 917, respectively, during continuous mixing and sealed to the pellets by spraying with 30 mL organic, cold-pressed rapeseed oil (Gyldenmark), resulting in a control diet without β-glucan and three experimental diets of 0.1%, 1.0%, and 5.0% Wt/Wt β-glucan.
