How to Accurately Compare Enzyme Feed Additives

Increasing feed costs are leading many producers to consider the use of alternative or local feed ingredients, even with their drawbacks such as anti-nutritional factors or increased presence of indigestible non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs). Fortunately, there are many enzyme feed additive products on the market today that can address these problems. With an abundance of available…

Varying Xylan Content in Feed Formulations Require Optimal Enzyme Solutions

Substrates for enzymes are present in differing amounts, based upon feed formulation (i.e. corn, wheat, rye, barley). Each feed grain contains varying amounts of non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs), which are considered anti-nutritional factors because they are not digested by poultry.  NSPs bind nutrients and increase the viscosity of digesta material, which leads to negative effects on…
