Advances in understanding potential and barriers in phytate degradation

Speaker: Prof M. RODEHUTSCORD (Hohenheim Univ, Germany)

Phytate is an important source of phosphorus for the animals through the use of phytase. Optimizing Ca supply will contribute to the P availability.

Feedase, fibres & P:

The complexity of the indigestible fractions of the feed require a multi-enzyme approach. But enzymes are specific to substrates and a better knowledge of the target substrates is key to value the enzymes. Enzymes modify the substrates reaching the distal intestine thus also exhibit an effect beyond digestibility.
