Abstract

Phosphorus is an essential mineral in pig diets that is required for body maintenance and growth, as well as crucial physiological processes. This mineral is naturally abundant in most grains that are fed to pigs. However, the dominant storage form of phosphorus in plants is phytate which cannot be digested by pigs.
