SF03-030 23% Fat, High Glycaemic Index Semi-Pure Rodent
A semi-pure diet formulation for laboratory rats and mice based on AIN-93G. This formulation has been designed to maximise the risk of developing type II diabetes.
The only carbohydrates present are cellulose, as a fibre source, and dextrose. Theoretically the glycaemic index of this diet should be close to 100.
- A suitable control diet is AIN93G or AIN93M
