Different superscripts represent significant differences (P < 0.05) observed between exposures within the feeding groups (i.e. within columns). T represents a trend (P < 0.10) towards difference between exposure groups within the same column. ** indicates a trend towards a difference (P < 0.10) between the control and probiotic fed groups (i.e. between columns).
