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…
