Phytases are phosphohydrolytic enzymes that initiate stepwise removal of phosphate from phytate.
Simple-stomached species such as swine, poultry and fish require extrinsic phytase to digest phytate, the major form of phosphorus in plant-based feeds.
Consequently, this enzyme is supplemented in these species’ diets to decrease their phosphorus excretion, and it has emerged as one of the most effective and lucrative feed additives.
This is why phytase works as a digestive aid to animals.
