Get Citation Wu, G. Principles of Animal Nutrition. Mammals, birds, fish, and shrimp require nutrients to survive, grow, develop, and reproduce. As an interesting, dynamic, and challenging discipline in biological sciences, animal nutrition spans an immense range from chemistry, biochemistry, anatomy and physiology to reproduction, immunology, pathology, and cell biology. Thus, nutrition is a foundational subject in livestock, poultry and fish production, as well as the rearing and health of companion animals. This book entitled Principles of Animal Nutrition consists of 13 chapters.
By breaking down existing protein, some glucose can be produced internally; the remaining amino acids are discarded, primarily as urea in urine.
This occurs normally only during prolonged starvation. Other dietary substances found in plant foods phytochemicals , polyphenols are not identified as essential nutrients but appear to impact health in both positive and negative ways. Most foods contain a mix of some or all of the nutrient classes, together with other substances. Some nutrients can be stored internally e. Poor health can be caused by a lack of required nutrients or, in extreme cases, too much of a required nutrient.
For example, both salt provides sodium and chloride, both essential nutrients, but will cause illness or even death in too large amounts. Dietary fibre is a carbohydrate polysaccharide or oligosaccharide that is incompletely absorbed in some animals.
Protein[ edit ] Proteins are the basis of many animal body structures e. They also form the enzymes which control chemical reactions throughout the body. Each molecule is composed of amino acids which are characterized by the inclusion of nitrogen and sometimes sulfur.
The body requires amino acids to produce new proteins protein retention and to replace damaged proteins maintenance. As there is no protein or amino acid storage provision, amino acids must be present in the diet. Excess amino acids are discarded, typically in the urine. For all animals, some amino acids are essential an animal cannot produce them internally and some are non-essential the animal can produce them from other nitrogen-containing compounds.
A diet that contains adequate amounts of amino acids especially those that are essential is particularly important in some situations: during early development and maturation, pregnancy, lactation, or injury a burn, for instance.
A few amino acids from protein can be converted into glucose and used for fuel through a process called gluconeogenesis ; this is done in quantity only during starvation.
