Phosphorus Expert: Phytase

Phosphorus is an essential mineral element for the growth and metabolism of livestock and poultry. It supports the skeletal system, promotes tooth development, and participates in the metabolism of animals. However, 50%-80% of phosphorus in feed is bound by a substance called "phytate," existing in the form of "phytate phosphorus," which we refer to as "organic phosphorus." This form of phosphorus is not easily digested and absorbed, leading to phosphorus loss, wastage, and environmental pollution. Only by stripping phosphorus from phytate to convert it into "inorganic phosphorus" can it be utilized by animals, and the enzyme that accomplishes this transformation is called phytase.

Phytase is a protein-based biocatalyst that, when fed into animal bodies, can cleave the phosphate groups from phytate molecules, releasing phosphoric acid and converting it into inorganic phosphorus for utilization by the animal. Most phytases are derived from fungi or bacteria, and rarely from plants.

High-quality phytase can maximize the release of encapsulated or bound nutrients, improve feed utilization, and also save the use of inorganic phosphorus such as dicalcium phosphate, optimize feed formula space, and reduce feed costs. By enhancing the utilization of phytate phosphorus, it reduces the excretion of phytate phosphorus in livestock and poultry manure and other waste, thereby mitigating phosphorus pollution to the environment.

Phytase, as an innovative and environmentally friendly additive, has become a favorite in the feed industry. Angel Enzyme seizes the industry trend and produces a new product with high purity and stable activity through a unique fermentation process - Annzyme® phytase. This product can effectively release phosphorus elements and has a wide range of pH application conditions and high temperature resistance. It is suitable for whole gut hydrolysis, meets the requirements of feed processing technology, and can effectively improve the digestion and utilization of phosphorus in animal feed. It can be widely used in the feed industry.

Don't let phytate hinder the absorption of nutrients anymore, break free from nutritional constraints, choose phytase, and help you start a new era of efficient breeding!
