The data were observations recorded during fermentation of industrial potato waste (IPW) with zero inoculum (control) Lactiplantibacillus plantarum (MW296876), Saccharomyces cerevisiae (MW296931) and Aspergillus oryzae (MW297015) which were subjected to different fermentation time (0, 24, 48 & 72 h) in a two-factor factorial design (treatment × fermentation time), and each treatment had five replications. Fermentation products were analyzed for nutrient and phenolic contents. Across the fermentation time, IPW fermented for 48 h provided lower acid detergent fibre (indicating potential for higher digestibility). Hence, IPW fermented at 48 h was further used for in vitro digestibility using gas production method. However, only three replicates were used for incubation during in vitro experiment. Thus, gas production, dry matter & organic mater digestibility, metabolizable energy, rumen microbial population and rumen fermentation characteristics were measure/determined.
