Review: Role of Enzyme Inclusion on Monogastric Nutrition

Yaregal Melak


Enzymes are highly effective biological catalysts which can be found in all biological systems and they accelerate chemical reactions in the body of animals. The review of this paper is the role application of exogenous enzyme on monogastric nutrition and its effect. The objective of the review were: (1) to review the general findings of enzyme additives in monogastric feed and functions of supplementary enzymes in monogastric nutrition and  (2) to describe common enzymes included in monogastric animal feeds. The use of exogenous enzymes on monogastric nutrition has many advantages. The proper use of enzymes in animal nutrition allows to obtain maximum benefit from their action not only for the animals, but also for the environment. It is now well recognized that ingredients such as maize, wheat and, particularly, grain byproducts contain relatively high levels of dietary fibre and that this fibre has negative impacts on feed digestibility and performance. This allows for the option of using the enzyme to improve feed digestibility maintain performance with lower net feed costs. Enzyme also plays a role in improving health status and well-being of the non-ruminants, reduce in manure volume which is environmental friendly, product quality will maintained and productivity improved.
