Little is known whether a combination Ile and added Val improves the growth of pigs offered very low protein (VLP) diets through changes in nutrients digestibility and gut microbiota. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of a mixture of Val above and Ile at NRC levels on growth, nutrient digestibility and gut microbiota in pigs fed with VLP diets. Forty, weaned piglets were assigned to: positive control: normal-protein-diet; negative control (NC): VLP diet supplemented with first four limiting amino acids; VA: NC with Val above NRC; IL: NC with Ile at NRC level; VAIL: NC with Val above and Ile at NRC levels. While both VAIL and VA groups completely recovered the inhibitory effects of VLP diets on feed intake, only VAIL partially recovered the negative effects of VLP diets on growth performance. VAIL and VA increased the thermal radiation and decreased the digestibility of nitrogen. NC increased the relative abundance of Pasteurellaceae and Enterobacteriaceae in the colon. VAIL had a higher abundance of colonic Actinobacteria, Enterococcus, and Brevibacillus and the colon content of VA was more enriched with Mogibacterium. Overall, VAIL partially improved the growth performance which is likely linked with alterations in gut microbiota composition.
