Dietology
Course syllabus
DU III: Dietology


GENERAL OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE:
Nutrition and dietology as applied to the formulation of practical domestic animals rations with particular reference to animal health, productivity and environment.


OBJECTIVES OF THE MODULE:
Assess feed and the effects on the metabolic processes, considering the interaction between the nutrients, their bioavailability and interaction with specific enzymes to match "precisely" the requirements, considering genetics and the variability between animals. Use of corrective diets and dietetic feed.

SYLLABUS:

Lectures:

Feed, nutrients and metabolic processes in the organism
Interaction between nutrients, their bioavailability and interaction; nutrient interaction among specific enzymes in the organism
Interaction between diet, microflora and host, modulation of the interaction in monogastric and ruminant
Precision feeding: match the genetic and the variability between animals
Probiotics, prebiotics, functional foods, and biologically active phytochemicals and EU regulations
Dietetic feed and functional additives in different species: indications and doses
Disorders related to diet and use of corrective diets
