Monogastric animals like poultry, pigs and humans doesn't have ability to hydrolyze phytate (Lie and Porres, 2003) present in their feed and passed it as such in their manure which results in the phosphorus pollution and water eutrophication in periphery of intensive livestock population area (Kim et al.
The kernel distribution is less peaked and less skewed for ruminants than for monogastric animals; ruminants are present in a greater number of countries at a relatively high and even density compared with monogastric animals.
With the widespread use of several enzymes in diets for monogastric animals, there is an increasing tendency to use different enzymatic products in the diets, which requires the use of nutritional matrices appropriate to the enzymatic complexes, that is, an adjusted reformulation of the nutritional and energy levels to avoid possible damages to the performance or economic viability of production.

To satisfy phosphorus requirement, inorganic phosphate is added to monogastric animals diets because they cannot metabolize phytic acid present in their diet.
Aiming to provide the reader with an update on the current knowledge in intestinal research in production animals as well as insight into future developments in this field, Niewold and his contributors look at microbiota, pathogens and associated diseases in the major monogastric production species (pigs and chickens), microbiota composition in carnivores, the role of diet, additives and contaminants as well as the techniques used to obtain information.
