Supplementation of lysine-deficient, but otherwise nutritionally adequate, diets with exogenous phytase or lysine monohydrochloride (Lysine HCl) increased weight gain and feed efficiency of broilers. However, significant treatment interactions were observed, as the effects of phytase on growth performance were more pronounced in lysine-deficient diets.
