Organic trace minerals: Getting the most out of phytase

In vitro-based research suggests that the use of organic trace minerals can better spare phytase activity when compared to inorganic equivalents.

Phytase inclusion in monogastric animal diets is commonplace in the industry today, primarily driven by its ability to release phytate-bound phosphorus (P) from cereal-based feed ingredients. The benefits of phytase in monogastric systems have been well documented, with standard rates typically releasing sufficient levels of phytate-P to meet the…
