Turkey producers to benefit from enzymes
Danisco Animal Nutrition's Avizyme® 1500 received authorisation for use in
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.
"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
