Very good comment, specially when now in the market there is a prevalence of multi enzymes cocktails. Substrate is key and the smaller the substrate, smaller the benefits

Hello from Colmenar Viejo, Spain. Enzymes need a certain level of substrate in the feed so that they work like a key-lock complex. If we take look to ruminants, these poligastric animals can digest plenty of various fibrous materials due to their capacity - due to the microflora in rumen- to produce fibrolytic enzymes. Monogastrics, on the other hand, don´t show this capacity - some fermenta ...

Hello all, I always argue that enzymes are not energy providers in animal feed. To use the famous "matrix values" of the enzyme products that all enzyme providers give to the nutritionist you have to understand where this is coming from. For phytases the phosphate liberated is the main effect but energy comes from the reduction of the antinutritional effect of phytate IP6. The matrix value depends ...

In practice there is no real study on the use of Cellulases in poultry diets, Cellulose has different molecular configurations (4 types are recognized) therefore there is a need for a complex cascade of enzymes, not only cellulase but other enzymes that also work on the cellulose ligning interactions (Lacases from white rot fungi are good examples). Therefore, I would be surprised if we could have ...

Hello all,From the point of view of enzyme activities, the standard measure is how many moles of the product (the result of the chemical reaction) is released by a specific amount of the enzyme during a specific time and pH conditions. Although I am a biotechnologist I have worked in the animal industry and know that information does not translate well with industrial enzyme users. However, in the ...
