Values are in mean (SD): n = 3, values bearing different superscripted alphabets differ from each other at p < 0.05.

The bold values indicate the substrate that resulted in the best performance efficiency. That is, good reduction efficiency is indicated by high WRI values, good feed conversion rate is indicated by the lowest FCR, and good bio-conversion is indicated by the highest bioconversion efficiency.
