|Title:||The use of enzymes in low-ME wheat broiler diets: effects on AME and gut viscosity||Contributor(s):||Choct, Mingan (author) ; Hughes, R J (author); Trimble, R P (author); Annison, G (author)||Publication Date:||1994||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17507||Abstract:||The effect of a non-starch polysaccharide-degrading enzyme product (A vizyme, TX) on the performance of 4 week old broiler chickens fed wheats with high and low-AME values was studied. Supplementation with the enzyme increased the AME (MJ/kg dry matter) of a low-ME wheat from 12.02 to 14.94 and of a normal wheat from 14.52 to 14.83. This coincided with a significant fall in the digesta viscosity and marked increases in the apparent starch and protein digestibility in the small intestine. The performance of the birds fed the low-ME wheat with the enzyme was as good as those fed the maize control diet.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||6th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1994||Conference Details:||6th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1994||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Australian Poultry Science Symposium 1994, p. 83-87||Publisher:||Poultry Research Foundation, University of Sydney||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1034-6260||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830309 Poultry||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||6||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 957
