Vitamin D free diet. Contains vitamins and minerals.
Manufacturer: MP Biomedicals 0296007320
DescriptionDiet consisting of vitamin free casein, whole wheat flour, corn oil, alphacel (non-nutritive), calcium carbonate and calcium phosphorous free salt mixture. The diet contains all nutrients (except vitamin D) required by the rat, and when cholecalciferol is added (5 IU/gm diet), the diet provides growth and reproduction equal to that of commercial stock diets. Using whole wheat as the source of carbohydrate the rats experience better growth and development than with mono or disaccharides. There is some evidence, however, to suggest that vitamin D depletion may occur more rapidly with sucrose as the carbohydrate source. The calcium content of the diet can be varied by changing the amount of CaCO3 added.
