Summary

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
– contain secondary metabolites that add to the effect of the inulin
– be a cheaper solution
