Super dose Buttiauxella phytase continuously hydrolyzes phytate and improves amino acids digestibility and mineral balance in growing pigs fed phosphorous deficient diet

    The Buttiauxella phytase used in this study was found to be efficacious at concentrations up to 20,000 FTU/kg for pigs, based on the response criteria of the total tract digestibility of P, Ca, Na and Mg and the AID of phytate, GE and CP. This super phytase dose of phytase further improved phytate degradation in the ileum and enhanced CP and AA utilization as well as increased the availability of minerals.
