AB Vista recently introduced Maximum Matrix Nutrition, a new enzyme application which delivers complete phytate destruction whilst reducing viscosity and increasing fibre fermentability.
The application has been developed by the company following extensive research to determine the effect of targeted enzyme application to degrade both phytate and non-starch polysaccharides (NSP), thus reducing the anti-nutritive effects of both substrates.
The concept of Maximum Matrix Nutrition was presented by Dr. Hadden Graham, AB Vista’s services director, at the Feed Additives 2018.
"...the practice of superdosing phytase to target phytate (IP6) destruction has arisen from the industry recognising the nutritional benefits to be had from more complete phytate breakdown," Dr Graham explained.
"Recent advances in xylanase research have demonstrated that xylanase enzymes have a role to play in potentiating the gut microflora to degrade more fibre."
Dr. Graham also shared the latest findings from AB Vista research that support Maximum Matrix Nutrition.
"The net result is improved nutrient utilisation and a significant improvement in amino acids, minerals and energy, meaning diets can be formulated with higher nutrient credits delivering considerable feed cost savings and minimising waste," Dr. Graham added.
