While many may think all phytases are the same, they can perform very differently.
The unmatched stability of RONOZYME® HiPhos™ allows improved digestibility of phytate-bound phosphorus in feeds. By using RONOZYME® HiPhos™, you can reduce the use of expensive inorganic phosphates resulting in substantial savings, from $3 to $7, on feed costs.
Stable throughout the phases of feed production.
Performs regardless of inclusion rate or conditions.
Reduces waste into the environment.
Manufacturer’s recommendations vary considerably in terms of units (FTU, FYT, or U/kg diet) to replace a given amount of phosphorus. This difference can be attributed to several factors:
The source of the production enzyme gene impacts several enzyme characteristics, including stability and efficacy.
Phytase analytical procedures can express the units differently. Differences in buffer, for example, can “reduce” the number of expressed units by 50% or more to falsely suggest a phytase is twice as effective. Thus, assayed activity is a poor predictor.
Today’s phytases are stabilized with a quick-release pH-mediated coating, or by genetically engineering the protein itself.
Despite these efforts, not all phytases perform equally when subjected to the rigors of feed processing or storage.
The proprietary coating technology in RONOZYME® HiPhos™ protects the enzyme to make it heat-stable throughout the pelleting process:
Protects from environmental factors like heat and humidity, which could break it down before it can work in the animal.
Provides a longer shelf life, allowing RONOZYME® HiPhos™ to effectively and consistently release more energy and phytate-bound nutrients (including phosphorus, calcium and trace minerals) than any other phytase.
A stability comparison of three phytase sources showed that using a phytase without accounting for potential losses in activity can reduce growth performance by as much as 5 to 8 percent.
Because RONOZYME® HiPhos™ maintains superior phytase stability throughout stages of feed production, RONOZYME® HiPhos™ nutrient recommendations can be used to determine rates needed to optimize nutrition, health, performance and value.
The improved digestibility of phytate-bound phosphorus in feeds by phytase also allows you to reduce the use of expensive inorganic phosphates and improve sustainability by reducing waste into the environment.
