AB Vista gains EU-registration for phytase in sow diets

AB Vista's enzyme phytase for animal feed, Finase EC, has been awarded a product license for use in diets for sows in Europe.

Finase EC is a second generation 6-phytase from E.coli, which makes phytate-bound phosphate available to the animal from raw materials of plant origin.
Its 6-phytase composition means that it is highly active under the conditions found in the intestine. As a result, the product gives improved phosphate availability and further phytate-bound nutrients for sows as well as reducing the environmental impact from phosphate excreted by swine.
Improvements in both live weight gain and feed conversion ratio were recorded when compared to a control diet containing no enzyme, which can be attributed to the increased release of phosphate and other nutrients by the enzyme.

    Interested in knowing general composition of the ration fed tested sows and the approximate improvement observed with the inclusion of phytase.
