Effect of soybean oil on apparent digestibility of fibre in horses
soybean oil for starch plus glucose. When dietary palm oil was replaced by soybean oil, which caused a six-fold increase in linoleic acid intake, fibre digestibility in horses was not lowered. The infusion of linoleic acid into the caecum of fistulated ponies increased apparent fibre digestibility. It is concluded that the results of the three experiments disprove the hypotheses tested.
