In vitro Simulation of Gastric and Pancreatic Phase Digestion of Meat and Bone Meal – Maximizing the Hydrolysis with Minimal Enzyme Usage

North Carolina State University Swine Nutrition Research from 2001. An in vitro digestion system was established to mimic the gastric and pancreatic phase digestion of MBM. It was shown that the hydrolysis of MBM was maximized at minimal costs of enzymes. The cost was about 5% MBM protein. The average peptide length of the digest was 3.6 amino acids.
