RONOZYME® Carbohydrases – release the value in feeds

Our carbohydrases increase energy utilization, animal performance and financial returns for customers.

Animals need energy to live, grow and reproduce just as much as we do. Successful livestock production therefore relies on maximizing the energy present in the diet of animals. Of course, energy used more efficiently also increases financial returns for producers. Our carbohydrases help do all of these things.

Carbohydrates – the energy source

Carbohydrates are the primary source of energy in cereals and defatted protein crops. They are present in many forms, the most vital being starch.

The cell walls of feed ingredients are made up of a range of structural carbohydrates. To access the starch within, these cell walls must first be broken down. Monogastric animals are typically able to digest around 90% of available starch, but our carbohydrases help them do even better.

The cell walls of different plants are made up of different structural carbohydrates, so specific carbohydrases are required to break them down efficiently and release more energy.

Carbohydrases – our portfolio

Our RONOZYME® range of carbohydrases has been developed to increase the efficiency of energy utilization, giving producers the power to unleash more energy, whatever their preferred diet. The result? Better performance and lower feed costs.


Increases the energy value of cereals and cereal by-products in pig and poultry diets.


Improves nutrient release in full-fat vegetable protein seeds and fat-extracted vegetable protein meals.


Increases the digestibility of starch in corn- and sorghum-based diets.


Multi-component enzymes improve the energy value of cereals in poultry diets.


Our ground-breaking amylase increases corn utilization in dairy diets for higher efficiency of milk production.

RONOZYME® MultiGrain
An innovative thermostable multicomponent carbohydrase with multiple enzyme activities that will remain stable under pelleting conditions of up to 90°C. The most stable combination of xylanase and β-glucanase enzymes.
