Abstract

There are numerous reports of the effect of inulin on the bioavailability of mineral compounds. However, there are no conclusive reports concerning its beneficial impact or lack thereof in the case of such essential trace elements as iron, copper, or zinc. The aim of the study was to compare the effects of inulin addition with different degrees of polymerization DPs on growth performance in fatteners as well as on blood plasma concentrations of iron, copper, and zinc and selected hematological indices. The experiment was conducted throughout the fattening period up to a body weight of approximately 115 kg on 112 weaners with an initial weight of 25.0 ± 0.5 kg divided into 7 groups. The first group served as a control, while the other groups received increasing doses 1, 2, and 3 % of standard inulin SI; DPav ≥ 10 or long-chain inulin LCI, DPav ≥ 23 in complete mixtures. Compared with the control, the supplementation of the mixtures with inulin increased the average daily gains, the final body weight, and the plasma content of trace elements P < 0.05. An increased plasma zinc concentration was noted after application of inulin with a lower polymerization degree P < 0.05. In turn, at a higher inulin polymerization degree, a higher final body weight and increased copper P < 0.05, iron P < 0.1, hemoglobin, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration MCHC, and packed cell volume PCV levels were detected in animal blood P < 0.05. The inulin addition was found to have modified the analyzed indices, and the optimal supplementation level was estimated at 20  g·kg diet. Inulin with the higher DP exerted a more pronounced effect on the analyzed properties.
