RONOZYME® phytases – release more phosphorus
Phosphorus is an essential nutrient in livestock diets. It affects growth, reproduction and feed use.
Much of the naturally occurring phosphorus in feed ingredients is unavailable to animals. With most plant phosphorus being excreted undigested, inorganic phosphate has to be added to diets to compensate.
Increasing phytic acid degradation and the availability of plant phosphorus can have major benefits for poultry and swine producers, including:
- Lower levels of inorganic phosphorus in diets
- Reduced feed costs
- Better sustainability of animal production
Ronozyme® phytases are the key
Phytases are digestive enzymes which release plant phosphorus from phytic acid.
Monogastric animals lack sufficient phytases to release the phosphorus. Adding extra phytases to the diet increases phytate breakdown and consequent utilization of plant phosphorus.
If more phosphorus is available naturally, then less of this substance has to be added to the diet. This greatly reduces feed costs.
If phosphorus in the diet is utilized more efficiently, then less of this substance is excreted. This reduces the impact of livestock production on the environment.
Our phytases deliver exceptional phosphorus release in combination with outstanding reliability and consistency. They enable improved performance and greater business sustainability.
RONOZYME® HiPhos is our most powerful and active phytase, delivering exceptional and consistent increases in phosphorus availability.
RONOZYME® NP increases phosphorus release and utilization in poultry and swine diets.
