EU pig and poultry producers to gain from unrivalled phytase heat stability

(PresseBox) (Frankfurt/Main, ) The EU Commission has granted Danisco Animal Nutrition authorisation for the use of Phyzyme XP 10000 TPT and Phyzyme XP 10000 L in broiler, layer, turkey, duck, sow, piglet and grower/finisher feeds. Phyzyme XP 10000 is a highly concentrated phytase feed enzyme, containing 10000 FTU phytase/g.

Phyzyme XP is a new generation E. coli phytase feed enzyme. Trials have shown that this E. coli phytase offers more value compared to 'traditional' fungal phytases.

With Phyzyme XP 10000 TPT, pig and poultry producers throughout the EU can enjoy the benefits of a phytase feed enzyme heat stable to 95°C (203°F).

Claimed to be the most heat stable phytase on the market, the Thermo Protection Technology (TPT) developed by Danisco applies a coating to the phytase enzyme that delivers unrivalled protection to the high temperatures that typically occur during the feed pelleting process, while rapidly releasing the enzyme activity in the animal's gut without compromising animal performance.

Independent pelleting trials conducted at Technological Institute, Kolding, Denmark, showed consistently high stability after conditioning and pelleting at temperatures up to 95°C (203°F).

Andrea Barletta, Danisco Animal Nutrition's Marketing Director welcomed the news, and commented: "The EU's decision is good news for pig and poultry producers. Proven enzyme heat stability remains a key requirement for our customers. Phyzyme XP 10000 TPT is a free-flowing, dust-free phytase granulate that can be used easily and confidently in the vast majority of feed processes globally." She continues, "coupled with the leading-edge performance of this new generation phytase feed enzyme, which is proven to deliver at least 20% more efficacy than traditional phytases, Phyzyme XP TPT offers unrivalled thermostability, performance and value."
