Developed by AB Vista, the guide will contain details of average phytate levels for a range of raw materials available across the world. Our Global Technical Manager, Gilson Gomes explains the value of such information:
“More-in depth analysis of feed and raw materials can help nutritionists and producers gain a deeper understanding of anti-nutritional factors such as phytate, as well as variation in raw materials. This insight can help companies tap into margin opportunities that may otherwise have been lost or not realised.”

Feed intelligence helps deliver the best ROI 

Knowing the phytate content of ingredients and feed can help producers exploit the extra-phosphoric effects of phytases such as Quantum Blue, by targeting the complete breakdown of phytate in the diet. This insight or ‘feed intelligence’ can help nutritionists identify the phytase application which will deliver the best return on investment. 
“We understand the pressure on producers to get the most value out of their operations. Scientific advancements continue to shed more light on the role of nutritional factors and our ability to measure these within diets, opening up possibilities for incremental improvements in energy and nutrition efficiency. We’ve developed this phytate reference guide to provide companies with an improved nutritional picture or ‘feed intelligence’ to help them with formulating to meet the demands of the industry.

The guide, which contains information on phytic-P levels in a range of raw materials - including corn, wheat, sorghum and soybean meal - across the Americas and globally is available on request.
