AB Vista: Econase® XT gets European approval

AB Vista today announces the European approval of Econase® XT.

Econase® XT is the first and only intrinsically thermostable xylanase product available and has already revolutionised the xylanase market in Mexico, Brazil, the USA and India.

AB Vista’s Technical Director, Dr. Hadden Graham, commented: “Major feed producers in a number of territories are already using Econase® XT with excellent results. The new product gives producers confidence in performance thus increasing profitability.”

This enzyme has three key qualities:
1. Intrinsic thermostability: The first xylanase on the market with the ability to survive high pelleting temperatures without the use of a coating.  Three independent tests carried out at Kolding Biotechnology Institute, Denmark show that there is no loss of activity after steam conditioning up to 95°c for 30 seconds followed by pelleting.
2. Assayability: The level of enzyme activity in the feed can be reliably and accurately measured.
3. Efficacy: Numerous independent trial results show the positive influence on animal performance. Independent trials have already demonstrated the value of Econase® XT in both poultry and swine, and in feeds based on corn or wheat, leading to a better daily gain and improved feed conversion.

The registration number for Econase XT in the EU is 4a8.  A copy of the official journal entry can be obtained via AB Vista by contacting them via the website.
