Save energy, time and costs

Since the enzymatic process uses mild cooking conditions, it saves energy and time. The feather meal also has less odor and a lighter color.  

Enzymatic hydrolysis lets producers reduce cooking temperatures and save 10–15% on energy costs compared to standard steam pressure cooking. Enzymes also efficiently tackle fat balls, which require time- and energy-consuming sieve separation before milling.
