Xylanase Imrpoves The Ileal Energy And Nitrogen Digestibility Of High Wheat Finisher Diets In Swine

North Carolina State University Swine Nutrient Management Research from 2002. The ileal digestibility of a high wheat/wheat shorts diet was improved with the addition of xylanase, and as a result, ileal indigestible energy and nitrogen were reduced by 1.2% for each unit of enzyme added to a gram of feed. Xylanase thus improves the utilization of feed while potentially reducing waste and odor.
