Harmonized analytical method for phytase

Under the Fefana umbrella, phytase experts in collaboration with the Community Reference Laboratory for feed additives (CRL) have developed a tool to quantify phytase products in feed samples.

Nowadays, analysis has become an increasingly important aspect of the authorisation process. So far, different methods have been used to determine phytase activity in feed samples and other matrixes. This variety of methods has caused some problems for the EU control authorities.

The new phytase determination method will allow the analysis of all currently EU authorized phytases in feed samples and other matrixes. The method is reaching final EU and international standardization stage at the European Committee for Standardization (CEN).
