Advances in the use of enzymes and probiotics in poultry nutrition

    This paper outlines evidence of DFM and enzyme technologies showing complementary effects on nutrient digestibility and growth performance in broiler chickens, which seem to be more evident in conditions of enteric disease challenge. Those effects may be explained by the direct effects of DFMs on intestinal health, which can create the correct environment for enzymes to increase the absorption of nutrients. Additionally, there is evidence of complementarity between DFMs and carbohydrase and protease enzymes on the digestion of fibre, which could imply both an increase of the digestion and absorption of energy yielding nutrients from the diet and possibly release pre-biotic oligosaccharides.
