A healthy gut is critical for better digestion and absorption of nutrients to fulfill the high nutrient requirement of young animals and a much needed boost in their growth.CIBENZA DP100, a unique feed protease enzyme, not only helps in diet optimization and feed cost savings but is also effective in enhancing protein digestibility, balancing gut microbiota, and improving gut integrity that results in better animal performance during their early days.
Feed efficiency is one of the main factors used for the improvement of chicken production. In addition, feed efficiency has an important economic impact on the competitiveness of the poultry sector.
The efficient conversion of feed into its basic components for optimal nutrient absorption is vital for both broiler and broiler breeder production and welfare. Gut health, an intricate and complex area combining nutrition, microbiology, immunology, and physiology, has a key role to play. When gut health is compromised, digestion and nutrient absorption are affected which, in turn, can have a detrimental effect on feed conversion leading to economic loss and greater susceptibility to disease.
Soybean meal is the most widely used major protein source in poultry production across the world. However, SBM contains various anti-nutritional factors that may affect intestinal homeostasis and impair nutrient utilization in poultry. One of the main anti-nutritional factors is Trypsin Inhibitor.
Dr. Koushik De, technical service director - South Central Asia, explains how to deal with trypsin inhibitor in soybean meal in this interview with Engormix.
