Energy, amino acid, and phosphorus digestibility and energy prediction of thermally processed food waste sources for swine

This week, the swine nutrition team at the University of Minnesota is presenting their latest publication on food waste and its nutritional value.

Key Points

  • The digestibility of energy and nutrients of fish waste, supermarket waste, and vegetable waste was investigated.
  • Both fish and supermarket waste were excellent sources of digestible energy, metabolizable energy, and digestible amino acids 
  • These food waste sources could be used to partially replace corn and soybean meal in swine diets to reduce environmental impact
