The phytase market is on the brink of a new era. For the first time, it will be possible to replace all feed phosphate additives in pig and poultry diets, say DSM Nutritional Products, thanks to the launch of their next-level phytase Ronozyme HiPhos.
Ronozyme HiPhos is the most powerful and active phytase in the global market, the company states. Extensive pre-launch trials with poultry and pigs in many countries have clearly proved its benefits. When added to livestock feed, it has the ability to consistently deliver nearly twice the level of available phosphorus from the widest range of feed raw materials as do current competitor phytase products. Feed formulations using Ronozyme HiPhos therefore require considerably less inorganic phosphorus and/or animal protein producers. This noticeably cuts feed costs. It also significantly reduces the environmental impact of livestock farming, as less phosphorus is excreted by livestock on a diet containing the product.
Dependent on feed ingredient prices and feed composition, trial results published show that additional savings of 10―15% can be generated compared to standard phytase recommendations.
Ronozyme HiPhos has been jointly created by the DSM Novozymes Alliance, which has over 20 years of experience in the development of phytase and other enzymes for use in animal feed. Having already jointly developed the market-leading phytase Ronozyme NP, DSM and Novozymes pooled their extensive knowledge and expertise to create the new product.
Antonio Ruy Freire, President Animal Nutrition & Health at DSM Nutritional Products, comments: “The launch of Ronozyme HiPhos shows the DSM Novozymes Alliance to be once again offering an excellent solution for unmet customer needs with this product evolution. This breakthrough heralds a new era in sustainable feeding and production in monogastric livestock. It means that feed producers can reduce their feeding costs, which makes them more profitable, while at the same time cutting their environmental impact.”
Ronozyme HiPhos also offers greater efficiency in application. It comes in three forms. Ronozyme HiPhos (GT) for pelleted feeds, featuring what DSM describes as the most heat-stable phytase available on the market. Its flowability, mixability and freedom from dust are excellent. Presented in granulated form, Ronozyme HiPhos continues the DSM tradition of having the industry-leading thermo-stable, dust-free formulation with a particle size that ensures optimal distribution in premixes and feeds.
Ronozyme HiPhos (M), meanwhile, is a more suitable product form for mash feed processing, whereas Ronozyme HiPhos (L) is a liquid form for any other feed applications.
