Interesting discussion. As Dr. Hansen has explained, enzymes increase the ability of an animal to utilise certain nutrients (energy, phosphorous, amino acid). They do this by helping break down compounds that prevent utilisation; in the case of phytase, this is the phytate complex, in the case of NSP enzmyes, the various non-starch polysaccharides that can prevent adequate digestion of feed compon ...

Each phytase has an optimum pH with ftu’s conveying its relative activity under that specific condition. Phytases first act during storage in the crop with pH’s varying between 4-6 over varying durations. This ingests is conveyed into gizzard where pH’s decrease to 2-3 again over varying durations. Phytases of different pH optima continue to function through crop and gizzard only ...

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 ...

In my viewpoint, you need to consider matrix value of Ca as well; otherwise, and as mentioned by others, Ca level in your diets incased that has adverse effect on Phytase. Below I added some considerations regarding Phytase and its matrix value. I hope this would be applicable. Factors affecting phytase activity Mineral contentAlthough doubted in some literature, high level of dietary calcium has ...

Introduction Modern layer hybrids are a four-line-cross with a long breeding history and show a very high production potential in different housing systems all around the world. This proofs for white egg producing lines and for brown egg producing hens as well. Due to ongoing genetic work the egg industry and farmers realise steadily increasing persistency and longer liability under all housing c ...

Introduction In swine industry, the weaning transition is a complex period during which the piglets have to cope with abrupt separation from their dam, mixing with other litters in a usually new environment and switch from highly digestible feed (milk) to a less digestible more complex solid feed; hence weaning is a stressful experience for the piglets involving nutritional, psychological, enviro ...
