Table 1 In vitro ileal digestibility of dry matter for feed ingredients with or without the enzyme complex, experiment 1

From: An enzyme complex increases in vitro dry matter digestibility of corn and wheat in pigs

Item Digestibility,  % SEM p value
Control Enzyme complex additiona
Barley 75.6 77.6 0.91 0.168
Corn 75.5 80.5 1.35 0.029
Wheat 83.8 86.4 0.47 0.003
Canola meal 64.5 63.1 0.87 0.893
Copra expellers 48.5 45.9 1.88 0.351
Cotton seed meal 56.6 55.5 0.74 0.285
Distillers dried grains with solubles 62.8 61.7 0.78 0.372
Palm kernel expellers 30.7 31.6 0.39 0.162
Soybean meal 74.6 74.2 0.34 0.424
  1. Each least squares mean represents 6 observations except corn in control and cotton seed meal with an enzyme addition (5 observations)
  2. SEM standard error of the means
  3. aThe enzyme complex was added at 1.0 %. The enzyme complex consisted of β-pentosanase, β-glucanase, α-amylase and protease (6000 EPU/g, 32,000, 17,600 and 142 EU/g, respectively)
