Present study was designed to develop indigenous phytate hydrolyzing probiotic Lactobacilli to increase phosphorous availability in poultry gut with ultimate goal of efficient and enhanced poultry production. A total of 90 Lactobacilli were isolated from indigenous poultry droppings and homemade fermented milk products. Lactobacilli were screened for phytate hydrolyzing ability and enzyme activities were measured calorimetrically by ammonium molybdate assay. Out of 62 isolates showing phytate

Out of 16, three isolates (PDP10, PDP24 and FYP38) were identified as Lactobacillus gallinarum, Lactobacillus reutri and Lactobacillus fermentum respectively, and further selected for physico-chemical optimization of phytase production.
