Lower phytase dose option

Published on: Dec 17, 2013
Following the launch of its patented bacterial phytase Axtra PHY to the poultry sector earlier this year, DuPont subsidiary Danisco Animal Nutrition has achieved U.S. Food & Drug Administration agreement for a lower Axtra PHY dose level for swine (250 phytase units per kilogram of feed). Axtra PHY offers cost-effective dosing through use of a strong set of matrix values that are, in turn, supported by numerous worldwide trials at different production stages (weaner and grower/finisher). The product is available in liquid and dry product forms. If a dry product form is preferred, maximum performance and ease of use is ensured through its thermo protection technology (TPT) granule, ensuring heat stability up to 203°F (95°C).
