Importance of cereal phytase activity for phytate phosphorus utilization by growing pigs fed diets containing triticale or corn.


In contrast to corn, wheat and triticale exhibit high phytase activities. This enzyme enhances phytic phosphorus availability, as demonstrated in pigs given wheat diets. To study the utilization of triticale phosphorus in pigs, the importance of dietary phytase content and the mineral and bone disorders related to high phytate feeding, a nutritional… (More)
