Comparative analysis of various naturally occurring substrates for high Phytase activity for use in Pig and Poultry feed


Sonia Dahiya, Namita Singh

Research indicates potential alternative feedrnobtained from plant products and agricultural wastes for pig and poultry. Arncomparison between commercial feed and phytase rich ecofriendly naturalrnproducts has been conducted. Phosphorus (P) is an important element in thernfeeding of pigs and poultry. It is necessary for bone development, highrnproduction level and overall development of animals. But of the totalrnphosphorus taken in the form of diet one third of the P is present in thernforage as inorganic P which is easily digestible and the other two thirds isrnpresent as organic P especially in the form of phytic acid and phytate. Thernphosphate stored in this form has twin fallouts first it is unavailable to thernpoultry and pigs and secondly it poses serious environmental threats.
