Take the mystery out of phytase

Phosphorus is essential for animal metabolism, but is often inaccessible to swine and poultry in the most common animal feedstocks.  Adding inorganic phosphates allows feed to meet phosphorus needs, but it increases the cost and environmental impact of production.   
Phytase is an enzyme that releases phosphate from animal feed. Our phytase expert Lars Skov and DSM principle scientist Aaron Cowieson help demystify phytases by explaining their characteristics and product forms.

Co-create the future of feed

The Animal Health & Nutrition products we develop with our partners enable more sustainable and economical livestock production. They include feed enzymes that help increase the nutritional value of feed and naturally occurring microbes known as probiotics that can reduce antibiotic usage in livestock. They also include a range of sustainable microbial solutions for aquaculture that improve water quality, reducing the risk of disease and increasing yields.


Balancius™ is the first and only broiler feed ingredient designed to unlock the hidden potential in gastrointestinal functionality. Balancius is a novel microbial muramidase that supports digestion, gastrointestinal functionality and improves animal performance.
