Table 2 In vitro total tract 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 85.9 86.4 0.43 0.515
Corn 88.9 92.0 0.48 0.002
Wheat 90.1 91.1 0.50 0.175
Canola expellers 78.2 77.8 0.16 0.123
Copra meal 65.7 66.5 0.55 0.334
Cotton seed meal 64.6 65.0 0.72 0.670
Distillers dried grains with solubles 75.1 73.4 0.71 0.145
Palm kernel expellers 47.3 47.0 0.68 0.775
Soybean meal 94.1 93.9 0.21 0.367
  1. Each mean represents 6 observations except soybean meal in control and soybean meal and DDGS 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)
