1. Introduction Xylans, also known as arabinoxylans (AX) and pentosans, are the most abundant hemicelluloses in the cell walls of monocotyledonous plants, such as cereals. The presence of these polysaccharides has a direct negative impact on energy availability of monogastric diets (Choct and Annison, 1990), largely due to the direct effect of soluble AX on increasing digesta viscosity. These ne ...

Chicken meat production is more sustainable and has lower environmental impact than porcine and bovine meat production. Chicken production uses less feed consumed for each kilogram of meat produced and uses less land and water for both farming and feed production (Flachowsky et al., 2017). Moreover, the broiler production industry has, for many years, continuously improved animal performance, refl ...

  Introduction Poultry production has undergone a substantial increase compared to other animal food-producing industries since 1970 (Yegani and Korver, 2008). Improvements in housing, genetic selection for growth rate, and advances in feed formulation achieved by matching nutrient requirements of the birds and nutrient contents of the feedstuffs, have resulted in higher meat yield, improve ...

1. Introduction Probiotics may alter gut microflora in poultry and play a role in competitive exclusion (CE) ofSalmonella by the Nurmi concept ( Pivnick and Nurmi, 1982). Competitive exclusion involves oral administration of intestinal microflora derived from healthy salmonella-free adult birds into newly hatched chicks. Establishment of an adult intestinal microflora in newly hatched c ...

1. Introduction Wheat is one of the most variable in composition among cereal grains (Choct et al., 1999a). These differences are exacerbated by the environmental conditions under which the grains are grown (Longstaff and MacNab, 1986). A review by van Barneveld (1997) using past data for more than 70 cultivars of wheat found differences of up to 3.7 MJ/kg dry matter (DM) in d ...

1. Introduction Probiotics display numerous health benefits beyond providing basic nutritional advantages. Probiotic products consisting of beneficial microflora can help to establish and maintain the balance of the intestinal microflora in commercial broilers. However, selecting a probiotic microorganism that has beneficial effects in broiler chickens requires an extensive search for the optimum ...
