Unlocking muscle growth potential with phytase

 

Dr. Patrick Guggenbuhl, Senior Scientist and Jean-Paul Ruckebusch, Global Category Manager Enzymes, DSM

 

 

Myo-inositol is known to have the property to increase insulin sensitivity which can help in the distribution of blood glucose to the different organs and in particular to skeletal muscles, which will influence protein accretion and by that have a growth promoting effect. Laboratory results suggest that baseline plasma myo-inositol concentrations in broilers are around 30 mg/l and in pigs around 5-10 mg/l. The addition of a suitable phytase can increase these levels with beneficial effects.
