WEBINAR: Phytase and the Additive Effect...Fact or Fiction?

Date: 21 July 2016
Location: WattAgNet Global Media

The effects of phytase on energy and amino acid utilization in chickens and pigs are well documented. Integrators and animal feed manufacturers rightly ask the question; how much space is there for non-phytase enzymes because phytase is ubiquitously used by the industry? The feed enzyme industry has not provided a clear answer yet. This Webinar, originally recorded on 21 July, 2016, will review the evidence in the area and discuss practical implications of that knowledge for the commercial application of feed enzymes and other additives.


  • The current thinking about the mechanisms of energy and amino acid contributions of phytase in mono-gastric animals.
  • Overlaps and additivity of phytase and other enzymes in terms of energy and amino acid utilization.
  • The evidence and indications from animal performance trials.
  • Practical implications for the use of phytase and other additives in commercial diets.
