Understanding the value chain of phytate – new white paper

Tuesday, May 9, 2017


AB Vista has launched a new white paper highlighting areas of research and innovation that are bringing new understanding, greater precision and more efficiency and profitability to the feed and nutrition industry.

Read the white paper

The feed industry has evolved rapidly, with science and innovation driving greater understanding of animal biology, feed composition and nutrition. Approaches to diet and nutrition that may have been seen as best-in-class 10 years ago are now outdated. This evolution must continue, as complex external factors drive a re-evaluation of nutrition strategies.

As the industry has learnt more about phytate and its interactions in the animal, we have come to understand it as a source of valuable nutrients. Feed efficiency, animal welfare and ultimately profitability are all affected by phytate. So when looking to achieve precision nutrition and efficient animal diets, the role of phytate cannot be ignored.

This new white paper highlights some key areas of research and innovation that are delivering new understanding, greater precision and increased efficiency and profitability to the industry. These include:

  • Inositol production
  • Calcium digestibility
  • Amino acids
  • Trace minerals
  • Near infrared reflectance (NIR) technology

These areas of research were presented at the International Phytate Summit in Miami, in November 2016. Peer-reviewed proceedings from the summit are available at Wageningen Academic Publishers.
