Anti-nutritional factors lower the digestibility of feed and thereby increase overall production costs. 70% of the production cost for broiler are feed costs but up to 30% of the feed cannot be utilized by the animal.
Nutrients are not utilized partly due to antinutritional factors (ANFs) like ß-mannans which are contributed by soybean meal and other plant-derived protein sources in commercial diets. By adding Natupulse® TS containing the NSP enzyme ß-mannanase to the feed nutrient and energy digestibility can be improved, supporting a more sustainable animal protein production.
Your benefits at a glance
-Decreasing digesta viscosity
-Increasing nutrient and energy digestibility
-Improving feed efficiency
Natupulse® TS supports feed utilization based on three interactive modes of action
Mode of action 1
Natupulse® TS reduces the digesta viscosity and could improve the nutrient digestibility by enhancing the diffusion of endogenous enzymes with the respective substrate.
Mode of action 2
Natupulse® TS could increase the permeability of the soybean cell walls. Thereby, more feed could be utilized by the animal.
Mode of action 3
Natupulse® TS cleaves ß-mannans resulting in manno-oligosaccharides (MOS), which can have a prebiotic potential.
