Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Food science
  • Biochemistry
  • Botany

Francesco Gai mostly deals with Meal, Hermetia illucens, Food science, Broiler and Animal science. His Meal research integrates issues from Feed conversion ratio and Dry matter. His Dry matter research focuses on Fish meal and how it relates to Trout.

His research in Food science focuses on subjects like Polyunsaturated fatty acid, which are connected to Botany and Animal feed. His work carried out in the field of Broiler brings together such families of science as Nutrient and Ileum. His work is dedicated to discovering how Animal science, Ingredient are connected with Predatory fish and Biotechnology and other disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Intestinal alterations in European sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax (Linnaeus, 1758) exposed to microplastics: Preliminary results (184 citations)
  • Nutritional value of two insect larval meals (Tenebrio molitor and Hermetia illucens) for broiler chickens: Apparent nutrient digestibility, apparent ileal amino acid digestibility and apparent metabolizable energy (145 citations)
  • Evaluation of the suitability of a partially defatted black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens L.) larvae meal as ingredient for rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss Walbaum) diets (114 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Food science, Animal science, Meal, Fatty acid and Hermetia illucens. His Food science research includes elements of Nutrient, Lipid oxidation, Antioxidant and Aquaculture. His work focuses on many connections between Animal science and other disciplines, such as Feed conversion ratio, that overlap with his field of interest in Weight gain.

His Meal research incorporates elements of Fish meal, Sturgeon, Broiler, Mealworm and Rainbow trout. His Polyunsaturated fatty acid study, which is part of a larger body of work in Fatty acid, is frequently linked to Composition, bridging the gap between disciplines. The various areas that Francesco Gai examines in his Hermetia illucens study include Soybean oil, Soldier fly and Nutrient digestibility.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Food science (49.33%)
  • Animal science (34.00%)
  • Meal (31.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Food science (49.33%)
  • Meal (31.33%)
  • Animal science (34.00%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Francesco Gai mainly focuses on Food science, Meal, Animal science, Hermetia illucens and Fish meal. His Food science study combines topics in areas such as DPPH, Antioxidant and Gut flora, Ruminococcus. His work deals with themes such as Nutrient digestibility, Mealworm, Soldier fly, Larva and Mucin, which intersect with Meal.

His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rainbow trout and Fatty acid. His studies deal with areas such as Protein efficiency ratio and Feed conversion ratio as well as Fatty acid. The concepts of his Hermetia illucens study are interwoven with issues in Acipenser baerii, Sturgeon and Argyrosomus regius.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • First insights on Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens L.) larvae meal dietary administration in Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baerii Brandt) juveniles (27 citations)
  • Antimicrobial Effects of Black Soldier Fly and Yellow Mealworm Fats and Their Impact on Gut Microbiota of Growing Rabbits (21 citations)
  • Catching black soldier fly for meagre: Growth, whole-body fatty acid profile and metabolic responses (14 citations)
