SF01-025 Rat and Mouse 22% Fat


A high fat diet based on our standard Rat and Mouse formulation.

  • For general comments see the standard Rat and Mouse formulation
  • The total fat content of this diet has been increased to 22%. In our experience this is the maximum fat content that can be included into a standard pelletised diet. Even at this content a significant loss in pellet strength is apparent. Higher fat contents are possible but we have found that the diet form must change.
  • The increased fat content has resulted in a 28% increase in calculated energy from 14.3 MJ/Kg to 18.3 MJ/Kg.
  • All other nutritional parameters have been kept as close as possible to our standard diet
  • A suitable control diet is Rat and Mouse cubes
