New carbon reduction study to be previewed at ESPN

Published Friday, 31st May 2019

New research exploring the effect of a targeted enzyme application on reducing the carbon footprint of broiler production is amongst the insights we will be presenting at the European Symposium on Poultry Nutrition (ESPN), taking place in Poland from June 10th to 13th.

It is one of seven abstracts in our suite, designed to afford poultry professionals with a wealth of new insights into the nutritional impact of phytate and fibre, and to uncover the latest ways in which feed strategies can be fine-tuned to capitalise on the inherent value held within substrates. 

Our Technical and Marketing Director Dr Tiago Santos explains that all research has been formulated with end users firmly in mind: 

“The research is precision-tailored to replicate ‘real life’ conditions in which products, strategies and services will ultimately be used: for example,our sustainability study used a carbon model derived specifically for livestock systems using real animal data, not only expected performance. The insights gleaned can be applied practically to commercial situations, helping feed producers meet their differential goals.”

The sustainability study – which demonstrated a 3% reduction in the carbon footprint of broiler production – was conducted using our Maximum Matrix Nutrition application, a combination enzyme strategy designed to extract maximum value from phytate and fibre, delivering significant improvements across nutrient uptake for considerable feed cost savings.

The research being showcased also includes fresh insights into new dual action microbiome activator Signis – a unique product which accelerates the development of a fibre-degrading microbiome to improve animal performance. Papers explore improvements across a range of broiler diets: corn and wheat-based, as well as those deficient in energy and amino acids.

Posters and abstracts have been authored and (where applicable) will be presented by specialists from our research and technical teams. Full details of poster locations and presentation times can be found at

Those not attending the event but interested in learning more are invited to contact us at, for details on the research being presented.

Online Feed Fibre Calculator

Calculate the percentage of dietary fibre in your feed

Our calculator is designed for nutritionists and uses averages of global raw materials to calculate the dietary fibre content (plus other more in-depth fibre parameters) of finished animal feed. These parameters are available within AB Vista’s Dietary Fibre analysis service (part of our NIR service).
