Adisseo develops Predictor, a precise tool to customise nutritional matrix for Rovabio® Advance




Predictor is an innovative tool to help customer to extract the maximum potential from their feed formulations when using Rovabio® Advance, the only Feedase.


Predictor provides nutritionists with a precise and tailored nutritional matrix, allowing them to identify the amount of nutrients that could be saved when the enzyme takes effect in feed formulation. Rovabio® Advance, with its innovative enzyme profile, is a Feedase because it improves overall digestibility of feed nutrients. It transforms part of nutrients' indigestible fraction into digestible fraction. Considering this effect on global digestibility, feed reformulation should be revisited. That's the role of Predictor.


In order to estimate the potential of an enzyme in the diet, nutritionists should first know the indigestible fraction of nutrients. When evaluating the effect of enzymes, energy availability is usually the only factor that is taken into account. Hence, reformulating the feed based on energy has been the common practice for years. Nevertheless, today, with this new generation enzyme, the practice should change to integrate the other nutrients also affected by the enzyme.


"The development of this tool has been possible, thanks to Adisseo's large in-vivo database, leading to a robust and reliable tool adapted to the goals, requirements and constraints of nutritionists," Dr. Roberto Montanhini Neto, global enzymes technical manager at Adisseo, said.


Based on the diet set up by the user in the application, Predictor evaluates the amount of indigestible nutrients in the feed and estimates how much could be released by the enzyme. In practice, the user selects the animal species (broiler, turkey, layer), the feeding programme (number of phases), the product used within the range (P25%, P10 %, Advance Max) and, finally, the composition of his own formulas. Immediately, Predictor gives a consolidated matrix in which the user can find the nutritional uplifts: metabolisable energy, protein, digestible lysine, methionine and cysteine, etc., as well as available phosphorus.


"Knowing that energy, protein, and phosphorus account for the most important part of the cost of feed, we are proud to offer our customers this unique tool which will help them to optimise it," Dr. Neto concluded.


Predictor is a valuable tool on which feed manufacturers can rely to optimise their margin. Considering all factors influencing the feed price, using Rovabio® Advance with a correct matrix leads to a saving of almost US$14.00 per MT (for a classic diet based on corn and soybean meal at current raw material prices).


Predictor is available for all Adisseo's customers using or evaluating Rovabio® Advance and can be downloaded from
