inspire: International Non-Starch Polysaccharide Forum 2014
31 March – 2 April 2014
The first forum to lead global NSP debate.
Exchanging expertise to deliver clarity on NSP use.
ABOUT THE EVENT
An AB Vista sponsored forum on feed enzymes, Inspire, held over March and April in 2014 in Scotland, brought together 80 delegates from 23 countries representing academia, the feed industry and feed enzyme producers.
Presentations evolved from detailing the complex structures of plant fibre non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs), through the negative and positive effects of NSPs on animal nutrition, to evaluating the efficacy of NSP-degrading enzymes.
The flawed nature of much of the historical research done to evaluate the efficacy of NSP-degrading enzymes was one of the key messages to emerge from the Inspire Forum.
Note: Each day will finish with further discussions around the presentations in break out groups.
