Phytase supplementation of maize, sorghum- and wheat-based broiler diets with identified starch pasting properties influences phytate (IP6) and sodium jejunal andileal digestibility

    This paper shows that phytase improved weight gain and feed conversion efficiency in maize, sorghum- and wheat-based broiler diets, with more pronounced response in maize-based diets. Moreover, phytase also significantly enhanced nutrient utilization in maize-based diets.
