It is known that pure inulin a fructooligosaccharide extracted from chicory roots can:
reduce boar taint (skatole in backfat and blood)reduce parasite infection levels when added to specially composed experimental diets.
However, the entire chicory roots may, in comparison to inulin:
reduce boar taint more effectively improve the taste of cooked meat from both male and female pigs be more effective against parasites when added to normal diet types
Improved stable environment due to:
the reduced malodour coming from pig stables and manure may possibly lead to environmental benefits for the farmer and the public?
