Experts Discuss Latest And Future Trends at DuPont Phytase 101 Workshop

If you didn’t have the opportunity to attend DuPont’s recent Phytase 101 workshop in Prague in person, you now have the opportunity to enjoy presentations from experts Dr Roselina Angel , Dr Peter Plumstead, Dr Loeke de Lang and Ha Truong on the latest scientific findings about phytate and other factors that should influence phytase choice and dose, and on predicted phytase trends.

You can also enjoy highlights of the lively Q&A session that followed these presentations, moderated by Anne-Marie Debicki-Garnier, Technical Director EMEA at DuPont Industrial Biosciences’ animal nutrition division and our own Fabian Brockötter.

Peter Plumstead, Associate Professor, Monogastric Nutrition at the University of Pretoria demonstrates how improved performance and profitability can be achieved through:
  • A greater understanding of the action of different types and doses of phytase on phytate at different stages of digestion, specifically at low PH
  • How the right phytase choices can positively impact interactions of phytate with calcium, protein, starch and sodium.

Dr C. Roselina Angel, Associate Professor, Department of Animal and Avian Sciences, unveils her latest research on calcium and phosphorus metabolism and requirements, focusing on:
  • A greater understanding of the action of different types and doses of phytase on phytate at different stages of digestion, specifically at low PH
  • How the right phytase choices can positively impact interactions of phytate with calcium, protein, starch and sodium.

Loek de Lange, Manager Poultry Cluster, Schothorst Feed Research answers the following questions in his talk:
  • If some phytases act early in the digestive process on phytate degradation, why are high doses of those phytases recommended?
  • If it is not possible to estimate how much calcium a specific phytase will release during digestion, how can the minimal calcium requirements be properly calculated?
  • What effect do various phytases have (besides digestion) on utilization of dietary amino acids?

Ha Hong Truong, Poultry Research Foundation, University of Sydney, shares highlights from  several new/ recently published studies that examine the impact of sodium digestibility particularly on glucose in four segments of the small intestine. She concludes that certain types of phytase can increase glucose and protein absorption by reducing the catabolism of amino acids.
