Phytase is the most widely used feed enzyme that is providing nutritional, physiological, and environmental benefits in the feed industry. The current industrial feed phytase production mainly depends on microbial phytase production by biotechnology.
Microbial phytase is the most commonly used exogenous enzyme in the feed for monogastric animals. Phytase can reduce the anti nutritional effect of phytase and improve the digestibility of phosphorous, calcium, amino acids and energy, as well as reduce the negative impact of inorganic phosphorous excretion to the environment. The benefits of using phytase in animal feed are well recognized.
The most popular feed enzyme, phytase, serves the feed business in terms of nutrition, physiology, and the environment. The biotechnology-based microbial phytase synthesis is the main source of phytase used in industrial feed nowadays.
The most prevalent exogenous enzyme utilized in feed for monogastric animals is microbial phytase. The antinutritional effects of phytase can also be reduced, as can the negative environmental impacts of inorganic phosphorous excretion, in addition to increasing the digestibility of phosphorous, calcium, amino acids, and energy. The benefits of using phytase in animal feed are well-known.
