Indonesian: heat stable phytase authorised

02-10-2009 | |

The Directorate General of Husbandry in the Department of Agriculture within Indonesia has granted Danisco Animal Nutrition authorisation for the use of Phyzyme XP 10000 TPT and Phyzyme XP 1000 TPT in pig and poultry feeds.

Phyzyme XP 10000 is a highly concentrated phytase feed enzyme, containing 10,000 FTU phytase/g. Phyzyme XP is a new generation E. coli phytase feed enzyme. Trials have shown that this E. coli phytase offers more value compared to ‘traditional’ fungal phytases.

Claimed to be the most heat stable phytase on the market (to 95°C), the Thermo Protection Technology (TPT) developed by Danisco applies a coating to the phytase enzyme that delivers unrivalled protection to the high temperatures that typically occur during the feed pelleting process, while rapidly releasing the enzyme activity in the animal’s gut without compromising animal performance.
