Abstract

The effect of pasta inclusion in finishing pig diets was evaluated on growth performance, carcass characteristics, and ham quality. Pigs (144) were assigned to 4 diets with different pasta levels: 0 (control, corn-based diet), 30, 60, or 80%. Pigs fed pasta had greater (linear, P < 0.01) feed intakes than controls. Pasta increased (quadratic, P < 0.01) carcass weight and dressing percentage reaching the highest values at 30% inclusion level, and reduced (linear, P < 0.01) the Longissimus thoracis et lumborum thickness. Pasta decreased (linear, P < 0.01) linoleic acid and polyunsaturated fatty acid levels in subcutaneous (fresh and seasoned hams) and intramuscular (seasoned hams) fat, and enhanced saturated fatty acid content in subcutaneous fat (fresh hams: quadratic, P < 0.01; seasoned hams: linear, P = 0.03). Proteolysis index, colour, weight losses, and sensory properties (excepted extraneous taste) of the hams were unaffected by the pasta. Pasta could be considered as an ingredient in the diet for typical Italian finishing heavy pigs.
