Feed cost savings

Feed cost savings

For reasons of both cost and sustainability, fish meal and other animal-origin protein meals are progressively being replaced by plant-orgin protein meals. Our products help customers reduce feed costs by releasing key nutrients from plant protein meals, increasing digestibility and enhancing energy efficiency.

Phosphorous supports growth, feed efficiency and metabolism in fish. Due to binding, most of the phosphorous within plant-origin feed ingredients is not available for digestion. The addition of phytase enzyme, allows the release of phosphorous from plant meals, allowing it to be utilized by fish. Use of RONOZYME® Phytase in aquaculture feeds enables the efficient utilization of plant raw materials and nutrients for feed cost savings.

Carbohydrates found in plant-origin feed ingredients are an important source of energy in aquaculture diets. Release of these carbohydrates is critical to optimize feed efficiency. The addition of carbohydrate degrading enzymes to the diet helps release energy to the fish and enhance energy utilization. Both RONOZYME® WX & RONOZYME® MultiGrain, NSP degrading enzymes, improves energy utilization and enables feed cost reductions when added to plant-based aquaculture feeds.

RONOZYME ProAct is another feed enzyme which is improving the protein digestibility and reducing the nitrogen excretion into the aquatic environment.
