Summary

Wheat and triticale are a primary energy source in the feedstuffs in swine diets. Enzyme digestibility of organic matter (EDOM) is an index used in the feed evaluation system for pigs. This is based on the close linear relationship between the in vitro enzyme digestibility of organic matter (EDOM) and in vivo total tract digestibility of energy (Boisen & Fernández, 1997). EDOM is a complex parameter calculated from the protein, carbohydrate, starch and fibre fractions undergoing a three step enzymatic incubation. It is therefore a challenge to relate EDOM to specific chemical bonds.
