Abstract

Phytase has become a "staple" in many swine diets. We know that it releases phosphorus bound to phytate in the diet, allowing the pig to absorb and utilize more of that phosphorus. Some nutritionists even give phytase credit for energy, calcium and amino acid contributions due to evidence that it can release these nutrients in addition to phosphorus.
