Danisco Animal Nutrition Celebrates 25 Years of Innovation

18 June 2014

NORWAY - Danisco Animal Nutrition will celebrate over 25 years of enzyme innovation and continue its tradition of launching industry ‘firsts’ at the forthcoming European Poultry Conference in Stavanger.

EPC visitors can book in for demonstrations of the Company's newly launched Optimize Feed™ Service, an online dose optimisation tool.

Based on accurate and well-researched matrix values that take into account variation in animal species, diet, substrate levels and the age of the animal, it helps customers to calculate the optimum dose of the company’s bio-efficacious phytase products and its Betafin® natural betaine. Using the tool, phytase customers can maximise uptake of phosphorus and minimise the impact of phytate and other anti-nutrients on the diet. Safe and accurate replacement of costly methionine and choline, and animal production stress support are key benefits the new tool offers for betaine customers.

Danisco Animal Nutrition, a business division of DuPont Industrial Sciences, will also be presenting papers and posters centred on the superior benefits offered via its pioneering multi-enzyme portfolio, first launched over 25 years ago.

Global Development Manager, Dr Ahmed Amerah, will present a parallel session on the extra digestibility and gut health benefits of using a combination of Xylanase and β-glucanase compared to single Xylanase application in complex broiler diets (25 June at 13:00-14:00 CET). His poster, ‘Effects of different levels of rapeseed meal or sunflower meal and enzyme combination on the performance of broiler chickens fed wheat-based diets’ will also be on show at the conference.

Johan Jansen-Storbacka, Regional Industry Leader at Danisco Animal Nutrition, EMEA, commented: “We’re continuing our history of ‘firsts’ that add superior customer value with the launch of the Optimize Feed Service at EPC in Stavanger. Using this tool our phytase and betaine customers can be confident in the knowledge that their dosing calculations are backed up by reliable, worldwide trial data. We are also celebrating the success of our multi-enzyme portfolio, which continues to improve performance and profitability for customers over 25 years on from the initial launches.”

The XIVth European Poultry Conference will take place in Stavanger, Norway, from 23 to 27 June 2014.
