Fermentation with Aspergillus usamii almost completely degrades phytate phosphorus in soybean meal. Phosphorus excretion was investigated in chicks fed a fermented soybean meal-based diet. Thirty chicks were fed one of three experimental diets; a control soybean meal-based diet (total phosphorus, 5.2 g/kg; nonphytate phosphorus, 2.3 g/kg), a control soybean meal-based diet with added inorganic phosphorus (total phosphorus, 7.1 g/kg; nonphytate phosphorus, 4.0 g/kg), or a fermented soybean meal… CONTINUE READING
