1. Introduction Efforts to improve nutrient digestibility by the pigs can have effects on profitability of the pork industry (National Pork Board, 2012). Studies indicate that non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) in corn and soybean meal negatively affect nutrient digestibility (Moeser et al., 2002; van Kempen et al., 2006). Whole corn grain contains 27e32 g of xylose/kg (Knudsen, 1997) as arabinoxyl...

I congratulate the team of researchers for the work. However, considering the scientific experience of the researchers involved in the study, I would like to make the following consideration.
By the characteristics of the fiber, mainly of the soybean meal, would not be the mannanase e or the galactosidase, the enzymes more efficient than the xylanase?
