Calcium (Ca) and phosphorus (P) are essential minerals for many biological processes and skeletal health, however, they have a complex interactive relationship. Phytate is the naturally occurring storage form of P in plants, with the main storage site of phytate-P being seeds (Tamim et al., 2004).

Calcium (Ca) is an essential nutrient for poultry for biological processes such as bone development and egg shell formation (De Vries et al., 2010). Laying hens must be provided with Ca at approximately 4% of the total feed volume. Very little Ca is provided within the cereal grain component of the diet, therefore diets must be supplemented with sources of Ca. Dietary Ca is provi ...
