Abstract: Abstract:Experiments were conducted to study the effect of a dietary supplement of dehulled adlay (Coix lachryma-jobi var. ma-yuen Stapf) on the culture counts of some important groups of intestinal bacteria and their metabolism in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract of Sprague-Dawley rats. Rats were divided into 4 groups, and each group was fed a diet containing different levels of dehulled adlay for 30 days, 0 (control), 5, 20 and 40%. All rats fed with adlay had normal healthy intestinal walls and no pathogenic signs. There were no significant differences in liveweight gain or caecal pH between different groups of rats. Both the 20 and 40% groups had lower culture counts of enterics in their faeces than the 5% and control groups, whereas the culture counts of faecal lactic acid bacteria were higher in faeces of rats fed with adlay than in the control group. Caecal total short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) content and faecal SCFA were significantly higher in the 20 and 40% groups than in the control and 5% groups. All the adlay-fed rats had a higher faecal butyric acid concentration than the control rats. It is concluded that adlay has a significant influence on the growth of intestinal bacteria, which may ultimately affect the physiology and other functions of GI tracts of rats.
