BASF to launch Natuphos 5000 Combi G for US market

At this year's International Feed Expo trade show being held Jan. 24-26 in Atlanta, Georgia, BASF will focus on sustainable animal nutrition and on its new enzyme combination Natuphos 5000 Combi G for poultry.

BASF's aim is to optimize animal nutrition to make it more efficient, more cost-effective and more sustainable over time.
The company’s Natugrain TS and Natuphos feed enzymes increase the efficiency of feed conversion.
Natugrain TS (a combination of xylanase and glucanase) improves the utilization of energy and nutrients from plant-based feed, making otherwise indigestible plant components (NSPs) digestible.
Natuphos (phytase) improves utilization of phosphorus from plant-based feeds, thereby cutting down on the use of inorganic phosphorus in feed.
Combining enzymes with organic acids is an emerging concept which helps optimize the gut microflora in poultry, achieving maximum benefits at minimum costs.
New enzyme combination for animal feed
With the introduction of Natuphos 5000 Combi G, BASF is the first to bring an animal feed enzyme combination in granulate form to the market.
The new product is a combination of Natuphos and Natugrain TS and the company succeeded in unifying the enzymes 3-phytase, beta-xylanase and beta-glucanase in a stable formulation particularly well-suited for premixes and pelleting.
The new enzyme granulate is distinguished by its long shelf life. Customers benefit in particular from the simplified handling and dosing of the new enzyme combo, as compared to the separate use of its single constituents.
On top of that less space for storage is required and it also helps protect the environment, since less packaging material and transport space are needed.
