Beta Glucan in  the diet of weanling pigs. 
"You can see the results: adding Beta Lievito Glucan to standard diet in quantity of 2 kg/ton. or quantity of 4 kg/ton. the medium daily weight will increase along four weeks from 11% (Group n. 2)  to 13,8% (Group. n. 3) ; from fifth to sixth week they have an increasing of the medium daily weight  from 6.47% (Group n. 2), until 15,67% (Group n.3). The average daily Feed intake divided per the medium daily weigth, is until less 10%  (Tab.3). Biliography and research on pigs fed with 0,025%  Beta Glucan, report the existance of  a complex interaction involving growth performance and resistence to infections (Streptococcus Suis)".
