The NSP Problem Non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs) are virtually indigestible compounds in vegetable feedstuffs used for poultry nutrition. Their anti-nutritional effects reduce the efficiency of the feeds by trapping valuable nutrients, thus preventing them from being digested. Furthermore, particularly in broilers, the intestinal digesta may become extremely viscous due to the high NSP content in the diet. Since the activity of endogenous digestive enzymes is limited, this results in sticky droppings and impaired litter quality. This, in turn, may lead to poor hygienic conditions and, in layers, to a higher percentage of dirty eggs.
There are three important of NSPs in commonly used cereals in poultry nutrition:
• ß-Glucans in barley
• Arabinoxylans in wheat
• Raffinose in soybean
Natugrain TS, the feed enzyme product from BASF, contains the highly purified NSP-splitting enzymes endo-1,4-beta-xylanase and endo- 1,4-beta-glucanase. The enzymes are produced by fermentation using BASF’s own production strain, a fungus of the species Aspergillus. Due to well-balanced enzyme activities, Natugrain TS is well suited to counteract the anti-nutritional effects from pentosans and ß-glucans that constitute the major part of NSPs in commonly used feedstuffs. Natugrain TS improves the nutritive value of diets containing NSP-rich components such as wheat, barley, rye, triticale, oat, sunflower and a number of milling by-products. Apart from this Natugrain TS can be effective in corn/soy diets by releasing additional energy.
