  1. aHigh CaPi (Hca); high CaPi, GOS (HcaGOS); high CaPi, inulin (HcaInu); low CaPi (Lca); low CaPi, GOS (LcaGOS); low CaPi, inulin (LcaInu)
  2. bThe composition of the vitamin and mineral mixtures is according to the recommendation of the American Institute of Nutrition 1993 [43], except that calcium was omitted. In addition, tripotassium citrate was added instead of KH2PO4 and choline chloride was added instead of choline tartrate
  3. cTo acquire 40 g GOS/kg, the amount of GOS was increased since Vivinal GOS contains approximately 30% glucose, galactose, and lactose
  4. dTo acquire 40 g inulin/kg, the amount of inulin was increased since Orafti GR® inulin contains approximately 10 % glucose, fructose, and sucrose
