Turkey producers to benefit from enzymes

Danisco Animal Nutrition's Avizyme® 1500 received authorisation for use in turkeys.

The combined carbohydrase enzyme activities in Avizyme 1500 (xylanase and amylase) improve both fibre and starch digestibility in the feed. This increases dietary energy supply to the bird to fuel lean growth. This is particularly beneficial in young turkey diets that contain high levels of vegetable protein, for example soybean meal. The protease helps by making the storage proteins in soybean meal more digestible. It also reduces the impact of residual anti-nutrients that may still be present in the meal, such as trypsin inhibitors and lectins.

Improvement in performance 
"This approval is very good news for turkey producers across Europe. Improvements in bird performance help reduce production costs as birds reach specified retailer target weights faster," comments Anne-Marie Debicki-Garnier, regional technical manager for Danisco.
