New phytase now authorised for ducks

25-10-2007 | |

At the EU Standing Committee meeting on 22nd October 2007, the European Commission granted DSM Nutritional Products an extension to the approval given to its phytase feed enzyme, RONOZYME® P, for ducks.

RONOZYME® P, in granulate and liquid form, has been approved for salmonids,
broiler, layer, turkey, duck, sow, piglets and fattening pigs. The large
spectrum of EU authorisations is of major added-value for multi-species feed
factories. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has confirmed the efficacy
and the safety of the RONOZYME® P for ducks.

RONOZYME® P5000 (CT) is,
according to the company, the most heat stable phytase granulate product for
feed. It is dust-free and free-flowing to ensure safety and good handling
properties. The product is the best in class in respect to particle size, which
allows very good mixing properties in all premixes and feed. Physical
properties, coupled with proven thermo-stability characteristics, have been
maintained, which allow it to be used successfully at high feed processing
temperatures (90-95°C).

These characteristics ensure consistent delivery
of phytase to the animals. For the best economic returns, DSM recommends using
RONOZYME® P 5000 in diets for ducks at a level of 150
g/tonne.
