‘Phytase 101: Latest Research and Future Trends’

DuPont hosted a Phytase 101 workshop just prior to the ESPN 2015 opening ceremony in August, the aim of which was to share the latest scientific findings on phytate and other factors that should influence phytase choice and dose. Future phytase trends were discussed during and after the four expert sessions, featuring the following guest presenters: 

  • Dr. Peter Plumstead, Associate Professor, Monogastric Nutrition at the University of Pretoria
  • Dr. C. Roselina Angel, Associate Professor, Department of Animal and Avian Sciences at the University of Maryland
  • Dr. Loek de Lange, Manager Poultry Cluster, Schothorst Feed Research
  • Ha Hong Truong, Postgraduate Researcher, Poultry Research Foundation, University of Sydne

Video replays of the presentations from the event are available below, along with brief interviews with each of our guest presenters.

Phytate, phytase and calcium interactions

Roselina Angel, Associate Professor, Department of Animal and Avian Sciences, shares her latest research on calcium and phosphorus metabolism and requirements, focusing on methodologies to evaluate phytase effectiveness and achieving the right calcium balance.

"Winning with phytase"

Peter Plumstead presents research on phytase and dosing choices that maximize value in terms of profitability and animal performance. He also looks at where scientific innovation will take us in the phytase and phytate space.

The advantages of using the phytase enzyme at higher dosages

Loek de Lange, Manager Poultry Cluster, Schothorst Feed Research shared the latest research on phytate degradation /nutrient digestion at various points in the digestive system, and looked at how phytase choice and dose can influence this.
