A new strategy to improve broiler performance and reduce feed cost

Despite the reduction in feed cost, broiler fed diets supplemented with aspartic protease had better performance

EDUARDO LIMA* reports an exogenous aspartic protease makes it possible to reduce dietary crude protein levels in broiler diets resulting in performance improvements and lower feed costs.

Enzymes are classified by the substrate on which they act, so proteases will break down peptide bonds in prot...
