‘Advances in enzyme application’ will be presented at Feed Additives 2018, Amsterdam by AB Vista’s Global Services Director. Dr Hadden Graham will discuss how advancements in enzyme mode of action and substrate understanding are helping feed producers further optimise performance and feed cost savings.
As Dr Graham explains, “the practice of superdosing phytase to target phytate (IP6) destruction has arisen from the industry recognising the nutritional benefits to be had from more complete phytate breakdown. Recent advances in xylanase research have demonstrated that xylanase enzymes have a role to play in potentiating the gut microflora to degrade more fibre.”
Dr Graham shares the latest findings from AB Vista research to determine the effect of targeted enzyme application to degrade both phytate and NSP, reducing the anti-nutritive effects of both substrates.
“The net result is improved nutrient utilisation and a significant improvement in amino acids, minerals and energy, meaning diets can be formulated with higher nutrient credits delivering considerable feed cost savings and minimising waste.”
Dr Graham will present on Friday 28th September 2018. Registration for Feed Additives 2018 remains open at www.feedadditives-global.com
