Although all enzymes work the same way when added to the animal feed by increasing the efficiency of the digestive feedstock, nutritionists can use them to pursue unique approaches.
Each animal feeding enzyme has different properties that affect the rate of addition to feeding: the need for a protective coating to act on the animal's intestine and overall effectiveness. There are many companies like Feedworks which provide phytase enzymes.

The benefits of using enzymes can be realized in several ways:
-Reduce diet costs if you allow the ingredient cost matrix.
– Feed growth or efficiency can be increased by releasing nutrients, thus lowering the cost per kilogram of meat.
Although phytase and carbohydrates are well known, proteases have recently been added to the feed enzyme portfolio. It is important to remember that each specific enzyme in each category is unique and needs to be addressed.
The outstanding quality of the enzymes is the increase in the specificity of their substrates. Each protein breaks down a very specific substrate at a specific reaction site.
Therefore, to maximize the benefits of enzyme addition, you need to ensure that the enzyme is selected on the basis of the substrate from among the components used in the feed formulation.
In addition, various reaction conditions such as moisture content, temperature, pH value, enzyme concentration, and substrate concentration must be met for the enzyme to survive.
