Fullzyme® PHY

Unlike carbohydrase enzymes which function to liberate additional energy from vegetable feedstuffs, the primary function of phytase is to liberate available phosphorus through the hydrolysis of phytate-bound phosphorus.


Plant-based phosphorus is largely indigestible (varies by ingredient, but generally less than 50% digestible) to poultry due to the fact that it primarily exists in the form of phytate-bound phosphorus (only 30% available phosphorus). The indigestibility of phytate-bound phosphorus is a consequence of its chemical structure. In addition, phytate-bound phosphorus has a strong negative charge, which makes it capable of forming further complexes with several dietary minerals, protein, fat and starch, which carry a strong positive charge, thereby reducing the availability of both phosphorus and the other nutrients. To access the phosphorus contained in the molecules, animals need phytase enzyme activity. 


Fullzyme PHY bag

Fullzyme® PHY is a new-generation granulated thermostable 6 - phytase derived from E. coli and specifically developed to increase digestibility of phytate-bound phosphorus contained in swine and poultry diets.

Fullzyme® PHY is capable of breaking the ester bonds linking the phosphates in phytate-bound phosphorus, thereby allowing the animals to utilize more of the phosphorus contained therein. In addition, the other minerals bound to the phytic acid, such as calcium, magnesium, and trace minerals, are also released for absorption. 

Fullzyme® PHY has proven to enhance phosphorus absorption and performance in both pigs and poultry. The high heat stability of Fullzyme® PHY allows it to maintain its activity after the feed pelleting process. It has also been shown to produce more cost-effective outcomes at levels higher than typical inclusion rates, allowing for more reductions in inorganic phosphate supplementation rates for more cost savings.


Effect of Fullzyme® PHY on poultry feed

By increasing the utilization of phosphorus and nutrients in the compound feed, Fullzyme Phy significantly improves the bird's weight gain and FCR.


Effect of Fullzyme® PHY on swine feed

Fullzyme Phy improves the production performance of pigs by increasing the utilization of phosphorus and nutrients in the compound feed,  and at the same time, helps protect the environment.


Features And Benefits Of Fullzyme® PHY

  • Highly efficient in releasing digestible phosphorus and other nutrients from cereals and oilseeds. 
  • Increases phosphorus phytate utilization rate of feed by 60%~40%. 
  • Increases the utilization rate of calcium, zinc, copper, magnesium and other minerals.
  • Increases performance in pigs and poultry
  • Decreases the addition of inorganic phosphate supplementation with 8-6 kg per ton feed. 
  • Lowers feed costs and saves feed space without loss of performance. 
  • Reduces the phosphorus content in the animal's excrement and the pollution of the environment.
  • Thermostable up to 90°C/194°F during pelleting.
