Why do animals need enzymes in their feed?

When animals digest their feed, their stomachs and small intestines secrete a wide range of enzymes that break down starch, protein and fats into their components, which are then absorbed as vital nutrition. These remaining components make up about 30-90 percent of the animal’s feed. What happens to the rest? Waste.

Farmers are under pressure to feed an increasingly hungry world, so it’s essential to get the most out of animal feed.  Improving the digestibility of animal feed nutrients is the best way to improve the net benefit animals obtain from their feed – and it can be done with the use of enzymes.

The Ronozyme® range of enzymes for animal feed enhances the digestibility of energy, protein, and phosphorus – the three most expensive components of any animal’s feed. This enhances animal feed quality, reduces animal feed cost, safeguards animal health, and protects the environment.

Getting the most out of animal feed

Fighting for Phosphate

Phytases are enzymes that release an essential mineral called phosphate from animal feed and make it digestible for animals like pig and poultry. 

Phosphorus is critical to animal growth, but it is only found in limited amounts in the ground. It’s essential to get the most out of what we have, and phytases like Ronozyme® can help accomplish that.
