Phytase

DESCRIPTION

    Derived from the fermentation products of Aspergillus niger,Angel phytase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phytic acid(myo-inositol hexakisphosphate) an indigestible, organic form of phosphorusthat is found in grainsand oil seeds, and releases a usable form of inorganic phosphorus.

    *Activity : One activity unit of phytase is the amount of enzyme, which liberates 1 μmol of inorganic phosphorus  from 0.005mol/L sodium phytate(SIGMA, P-3168) in one minute at 37℃and pH5.0.

MECHANISM

    Hydrolyze phytate in feed, release digestible phosphorus, increase the utilization of phosphorus in feed;

    Reduce the amount of supplemental inorganic P, decrease the feed cost, save space of formula;

    Decrease the excretion of P in manure and the environment pollution;

    Improve the availability of nutrients such as minerals and proteins, improve the animal performance;

    Cut down the risk of the heavy metals by supplemental di-calcium phosphate.

APPLICATIONS

    Phytase application can reduce phosphorus excretion by up to 50%, a feat that would contribute significantly toward environmental protection. Furthermore, phytase supplementation leads to improved availability of minerals and trace elements. In addition to its major application in animal nutrition, phytase is also used for processing of human food. Research in this field focuses on better mineral absorption and technical improvement of food processing.
