In recent years there have been intensive efforts to improve the nutritive value of feedstuffs using dietary exogenous enzymes. Multi-enzyme preparations are used for the effective hydrolysis of a variety of indigestible components of feeds. The application of an effective blend of enzymes should further improve the competitiveness of alternative feed materials such as rice bran, cassava and DDGS, with other conventional sources of protein and energy such as soybean meal and corn, by improving the nutrient utilization and reducing the need for amino acids. Dietary enzymes can be used to supplement the pig's own enzyme production, including amylases to improve starch digestibility1, proteases to improve protein digestibility2, and NSP enzymes to target non-digestible non starch polysaccharides (NSP) constituents within the feed.
