I'm wondering why they make phytase for animals and poultry and not for people! At least I have not been able to find it. We have enzymes for zillions of other things, why not phytase? Does anyone know?

Nuts like almonds or filberts are high in Phytates, but also high in Calcium. Phytase is an enzyme found in foods high in Phytates (also whole grains, seeds and legumes). You can activate Phytase by gently heating or sprouting. This will allow Phytase to break down Phytates.

it is taken in the mast for cows coz it seems they lack especially those enzymes to built up phorphor and in pigs and poultry coz they can't use it without any enzymatic helpers !.... I think it's all about bioavialability...in human bodies inositol can be bult up normally.......
