The use of exogenous enzymes to improve feed efficiency in pigs

Code: 9781838795115
M. R. Bedford and C. L. Walk, AB Vista, UK

Chapter synopsis: Exogenous feed enzymes have been in commercial use in swine diets for almost 30 years. This chapter focuses on the use of three classes of enzymes: NSP’ases, phytases and proteases. We review the evidence that their use is beneficial, and suggest likely mechanisms of action based on the evidence available to date. Lipolytic enzymes are also considered.
