Kemin is pleased to launch a complete line of enzyme solutions, backed by scientific research, to enhance the utilization of costly nutrients in poultry feed, thereby improving profitability. Its three new enzyme concepts - KEMZYME® XPF, NUTRIKEM™ XL PRO and KEMZYME® PROTEASE - were introduced by Kemin experts to industry representatives, including poultry farmers and feed millers, at Karnal and Gurgaon, India on June 9-10.
To begin the seminars, Mr. Samraj Jeyachandran, Senior Vice President of Kemin Industries’ animal nutrition and health division, discussed the company’s latest innovations aimed at improving the quality of life through the enhanced availability of animal protein. In addition, Mr. Jeyachandran provided insights on the different products and services of Kemin, and detailed how the company approaches product quality through three stages: product development, manufacturing and product application.
Following his opening address, Dr. Monika Bieber, Kemin Worldwide Global Product Manager for enzymes, shared the benefits of KEMZYME® XPF, a new multi-enzyme containing both slow release amylase to improve starch digestion and xylanase potentiating factor to enhance the digestion of non-starch polysaccharides (NSP).
Dr. Bieber said that fiber degradation and carbohydrate digestion is essential for proper nutrient utilization. She explained that complex feed, a mixture of polysaccharides, fat, protein and amino acids, contains more than 20 percent of nutrients in the form of NSP, resulting in undigested starch and proteins. In cereal grains, approximately 30 percent of nutrients are entrapped in the outer cell wall, which obstructs the complete utilization of nutrients.
Furthermore, Dr. Bieber discussed how to improve protein digestibility, emphasizing the role of multi proteases and enteric proteases in enhancing the digestion of expensive feed nutrients through KEMZYME® PROTEASE.
“Feed is the most expensive component in livestock and poultry production, representing 70 80 percent of total expenses,” said Dr. Bieber. “To save on costs, many producers supplement feed with enzyme additives. KEMZYME XPF, NUTRIKEM XL PRO and KEMZYME PROTEASE are solutions that completely satisfy the needs of poultry producers.”
In addition, she described NUTRIKEM™ XL PRO, a multi-tasking product that has the ability to utilize digestible nutrients and non-digestible, energy-rich components, such as NSP. Its unique matrix of lysophospholipids improves the absorption of digested nutrients, thereby preventing feedback inhibition of enzymes.
Lastly, Dr. Bieber reiterated that fiber degradation is important for improving energy utilization, adding that Kemin enzyme applications are effective, flexible and highly competitive.
In addition to discussing its new enzyme solutions, Kemin also presented its novel encapsulated anticoccidial product, COZANTE™, designed to improve intestinal health and control coccidiosis in broilers. Dr. R. Chanthirasekaran, Kemin Global Product Manager addressed the need for intestinal health management and effective measures to improve intestinal health of poultry. COZANTE is the latest addition to the company’s intensive range of solutions for intestinal health management.
“The last effective anticoccidial was launched in the early 1990s and drug resistance has developed for most current anticoccidials,” said Dr. R. Chanthirasekaran. “Therefore, the launch of COZANTE is indeed a major step forward for the industry.”
The interactive seminars, coined Kemin Kontact, engaged the audience and served as an information sharing platform for industry professionals to learn about the latest advancements for improving production.
