Kiotechagil, an international supplier of high performance natural feed additives, has launched Feedzyme, a new feed additive enzyme range that covers nearly all feeding situations.
“Our Feedzyme enzymes offer a environmentally friendly means of improving the digestion of feed, resulting in healthier animals with improved feed conversion, reduced feed costs and improved litter or dung quality,” said Kiotechagil’s Mike Rogers.
The benefits of using enzymes as feed additives include boosting enzyme activity in the immature gut of young animals. By supplementing existing digestive enzymes the Feedzyme range promotes more complete digestion enabling the incorporation of less digestible feed raw materials, often of cereal origin. This permits the use of raw materials like DDGS in low energy diets, without compromising overall performance.
Through its new Feedzyme range, Kiotechagil is offering four separate enzymes two of which are thermally stable that achieve better responses in energy limited corn based diets.
“The new thermally stable enzymes achieve their stability as a result of their specific molecular structure which means an immediate response after ingestion unlike the “protected” enzymes that need some “release time” to free them from their lipid coating further down the gut, said Rogers. “A secondary benefit of the compact molecular structure is that these enzymes are also more pepsin resistant than previous generations of enzymes resulting in higher activity along the gut.”
From a quality assurance perspective these new generation enzymes are easier to analyse using a more straightforward and reproducible assay making tracing and confirmation of inclusion more reliable.
