The catalyst you need to jumpstart your production system

Making sense of the wide variety of commercially available phytase products can be a daunting prospect. This can often lead to a poultry producer feeling confused and frustrated. That is why we at Chemuniqué believe that the only way to separate the best from the pretenders is with scientifically supported evidence. An example of such…

No two phytase enzymes are created equal

phytic acid

It has been well established that nutrient digestibility, animal performance and the bone ash content of broilers are improved with the use of commercial phytase enzymes. How well the phytase enzyme can facilitate these improvements is very much dependent on the ability of the enzyme to breakdown the phytate molecule in the gastrointestinal tract of…

Investigating iCa in commercial laying hens

limestone grit in layer feed

Abstract Blood ionised calcium (iCa) is an indication of the calcium (Ca) that is physiologically active and available for the hen to utilise for bone remodeling and eggshell formation. A study was conducted to determine the effects of limestone particle size and phytase added to diets, on changes in blood iCa following oviposition (OP). Amberlink…

Making the most of phytase

phytase

Chemuniqué’s enzyme partner, DuPont Animal Nutrition, recently released a new white paper on the effective use of phytase matrix values in feed formulations and the significant positive impact it has on improving performance, reducing feed costs, and boosting production efficiencies. They examine the latest research to further explore the use of full matrix values with…
