The effect of different carbohydrase
and protease supplementation on apparent (ileal and overall) digestibility of nutrients of five hulless barley varieties in young pigs.
The low lipolytic digestive capacities found in the current study, in comparison with other types of digestive enzymes, such as proteases or carbohydrases
, support previous results on the digestive physiology of crustaceans (D'Abramo et al.
Indeed, the additive effect of multiple enzyme preparation with phytase, carbohydrases
and proteases has been reported in broiler chickens when fed onto the nutritionally deficient diet.
Because there is a wide range of carbohydrates found in naturally occurring food (Kristensen 1972), it seems appropriate that prawns would exhibit a diverse carbohydrase
profile to exploit the range of dietary carbohydrates (Wigglesworth & Griffith 1994).
Degradation of cell wall polysaccharides by combinations of carbohydrase

Generally, while carbohydrase
enzymes supplementation is common as commercial practice in swine and poultry industries, the use of these enzymes has not received much attention in aquaculture.
Fungal production systems such as this are likely to have low carbohydrase
, and even lower protease and other, side activities.
2003) reported that supplementing carbohydrase
in corn-soybean based-diets to nursery pigs improved gain:feed ratio by 7 to 9%.
Danisco Animal Nutrition has maintained its leadership position in the feed enzymes market after more than 25 years of developing innovative combinations of its carbohydrase
and protease products.
