|Abstract:||The digestibility of protein, fats, carbohydrates, and energy in three feed ingredients (sorghum, wheat bran, and rye) in common carp, Cyprinus carpio, was studied using the chromic oxide method. Three experimental diets were tested. Each contained 52.5% of a basal diet and 47.5% of the test ingredient. The carbohydrate levels in the test ingredients ranged 65-83% and the pro- tein levels ranged 11-18%. Therefore, carbohydrates were the main energy source. Results showed that the digestibility of protein in rye (91.89%) was significantly higher (p<0.05) than in sorghum (71.86%) and wheat bran (80.64%), producing 12.4, 6.7, and 9.3 kJ/g digestible ener- gy, respectively. The lipid levels in the test ingredients were very low, 1-4%. Lipid digestibility was 79.84%, 76.71%, and 82.01% in rye meal, sorghum meal, and wheat bran, respectively.|
