Abstract
The sustainable and efficient utilization of resources and therefore the extensive use of phytogens containing bioactive compounds gain notably in importance. Depending on the grade degree of polymerization, phytogens in the organisms either act as antioxidants or as components interacting negatively with nutrient digestion, mostly proteins. A prooxidative environment, which is created via increasing amounts of reactive oxygen species, can have an impact on the organism and subsequently on the zootechnical performance, the gut functionality as well as the quality of the food of animal origin.
