With the additional use of Natuphos®, the digestion and utilization of the total phosphorus contained in vegetable feed can be substantially increased. Consequently, more phosphorus is available for absorption in the small intestine of monogastric animals. Thus, less mineral phosphorus must be added to the feed to cover the animal’s phosphorus requirement. The usual level of supplements of inorganic phosphorus added to the feed can be reduced substantially without adversely affecting the output or skeletal mineralization of the animals.
In pigs and poultry, the use of Natuphos® thus reduces the phosphorus excretion with the manure by about 30%, both directly via the higher utilization of the vegetable phosphorus and indirectly via the consequent decrease in the level of inorganic phosphorus supplements.
Natuphos® also improves the digestibility of calcium, magnesium, and trace elements. An increasing number of studies have shown that Natuphos® not only improves the digestibility of crude protein and amino acids but also increases the energy value of the feed. Concurrent to the reduction in mineral phosphorus supplement, quantities of calcium, protein, or synthetic amino acids can also be decreased.
On the basis of large numbers of experiments, Natuphos® can be incorporated in linear optimization as a feed ingredient. Thus, it is possible to save the quantities of nutrients (P, Ca, amino acids, energy), which Natuphos® liberates from the phytate complex. Apart from the ecological benefits, the use of Natuphos® provides significant economic advantages in the preparation of mixed feeds.
Phytase powder products for non-pelleted compound feed or feed pelleted below 70°C
Natuphos® 5000, the original, classic phytase product is a free flowing powder. It is thermo stable and suitable for pelleting temperatures up to 70°C. Natuphos® 5000 is well known for its excellent properties, especially in mash feed (non-pelleted compound feed).
Natuphos® 5000 is used in pig and poultry feed to replace inorganic feed phosphates in diets which are rich in phytate (e.g. corn, soy, wheat, barley).
Phytase granulated products for pre-mixes, base-mixes & feed pelleted below 85°C
Natuphos® 5000 G (EU) and Natuphos® 10000 G (EU) both are able to adequately protect the phytase molecule at pelleting temperatures up to 85°C. Also under suboptimum storage conditions (>30°C), the Natuphos® granulate formulation exhibits superior stability compared to competing products – both pure and in premixes and basemixes. The optimum quick phytase release from the granulated Natuphos® formulation in the stomach of the animals is making the product superior also in terms of product bioefficacy.
Natuphos® 5000 G (EU) and Natuphos® 10000 G (EU) are used in pig and poultry feed to replace inorganic feed phosphates in diets which are rich in phytate (e.g. corn, soy, wheat, barley). The use of Natuphos® 5000 G (EU) and Natuphos® 10000 G (EU) is recommended for pelleted feed, especially if the pelleting temperature is below 85 °C and for use in premixes and basemixes.
Phytase liquid products for post pelleting liquid applications
The liquid phytase formulations Natuphos® 5000 L and Natuphos® 10000 L(EU) were developed for applications involving very high pelleting temperatures. Due to their excellent stability during storage and stability after spraying, the Natuphos® liquid product formulations are the favourite products for applications in which the feed pelleting temperatures exceed 85°C.
Natuphos® 5000 L and Natuphos® 10000 L(EU) are used in pig and poultry feed to replace inorganic feed phosphates in diets which are rich in phytate (e.g. corn, soy, wheat, barley). The use of Natuphos® 5000 L and Natuphos® 10000 L(EU) is recommended for pelleted feed, especially if pelleting temperature rises above 85 °C. Product must be sprayed on cooled and sieved pellets, using an appropriate application system.
