Efficacy of novel 6-phytase from Buttiauxella sp. on ileal and total tract nutrient digestibility in growing pigs fed a corn-soy based diet

This study was conducted to assess the efficiency of a Buttiauxella 6-phytase on nutrient digestibility in growing pigs. The results showed that enzyme supplementation in corn-soybean meal basal diet significantly improved the digestibility for most of the AA. Moreover, the supplementation of diets with a Buttiauxella 6-phytase significantly enhanced the AID and ATTD of Ca, P and other nutrients, in a dose dependent manner. The significance of the trial mainly implies to nutrients such as phosphorus, wherein the enzyme supplementation has shown to improve the digestibility. So the dietary supplementation withinorganic forms of suchnutrients canbeminimizedthereby reducing their excretion which poses a major environmental hazard.
