EU extension for new-generation phytase
The European Commission has granted Danisco Animal Nutrition an extension to
the approval given to its phytase feed enzyme, Phyzyme XP under EU Regulation
Liquid and granulate Phyzyme XP is now approved for
use in broiler, layer, turkey, duck, sow, piglet and grower/finisher feeds.
Andrea Barletta, Danisco Animal Nutrition's Marketing Director welcomed
the news, and commented: "The EU's decision is good news for pig and poultry
producers. This is the first phytase approved for use across all the main
poultry species, including ducks. More
Trials have shown that this new generation phytase offers
superior value compared to traditional phytases, as it is at least 20% more
effective in improving the digestibility of phosphorus and other nutrients
contained in cereal grains, oil seed meals and their by-products. "Phyzyme XP
also reduces phosphorus excretion by more than 30%. This environmental benefit
is particularly important during a time when concerns about pollution control
are increasingly high on the agenda."Related
