About this book

It is now well recognised that enzymes can be added to animal feeds to improve the efficiency of raw material digestion. This book provides a review of current knowledge of such enzymes, including their mode of action, interaction with intestinal physiology, economic and environmental impacts and application of technology into diets for different farm animal species.

Ideal for animal nutritionists and physiologists, both in academic research and in industry
