Diet: SF06-106 36% Lard Rodent Diet

A very high fat semi-pure diet formulation for laboratory rats and mice based on AIN-93G.
• Total fat content has been increased to 36% fat. Using generally recognised energy data this
would equate to a diet where 59% of total energy is from lipids.
• We would recommend that this diet be transported and stored at less than 15°C. At higher
temperatures the diet softens considerably.
• Calculated digestible energy has increased as a result of the increased fat inclusion.
• Dietary carbohydrate content is from sucrose only. All starch has been removed from the diet.
This has been done primarily to improve pellet/cube strength but may also have some
physiological implications.
