Ronozyme NP officially authorized for sow feeds

The EU has officially authorized the use of DSM's phytase Ronozyme NP in sow feeds.

After intensive work by DSM scientists and regulatory experts, and a positive safety assessment by the European Food Safety Authority, approval has been granted according to Commission Regulation (EU) No 999/2010.
As of 25 November 2010, the date of legal enforcement of the regulation approving Ronozyme NP can now be sold for use in sow feed in the European Union. The enzyme is already registered for poultry, fattening pigs and piglet applications.
Ronozyme NP is the new phytase product which provides an even greater release of phytate phosphorus compared to previous phytases, allowing customers to capture all the associated commercial and technical benefits.
Stéphanie Beaulieu, Category Manager Enzyme EMEA, and Arne Korsbak, Market Development Manager Phytase NSP Enzyme EMEA, comment: “This is a great achievement and will allow sow farmers to also harvest the benefits of RONOZYME® NP”  “
According to Stéphanie Beaulieu, Category Manager Enzyme Ronozyme NP enables high feed cost savings of up to €11–12 per tonne, as well as better heat stability and superior in-feed mixability.
The Ronozyme product range of feed enzymes is developed within the alliance of DSM Nutritional Products and Novozymes.
