Robert Swick What's your opinion on using phytase+xylanase/NSPase and considering their matrix as 1+1=1 (like we do at commercial level to avoid inconsistency of ingredients) OR 1+1=2 (seems logical on mathematical grounds) OR 1+1=3 (could be logical as more enzymes release entrapped nutrients by breaking complex NSP+phytate structure)?

Haroon Mushtaq It is necessary to change customer's point of view. I agree, it's a difficult problem...

Pirzado M Zakria Also need to know which enzyme is contributing more in that cocktail (e.g.) if its NSPase base then you can consider ME, primarily, and ignore other factors. Do likewise for other enzymes.

Haroon Mushtaq ; as explain by Ankur, probiotic is fed to broilers as spores forms, able to resist very high temperature and pressure. It was one of the main specifications we were looking at when we developed the product. Spores will germinate in the intestine. We have just presented original data and scientific in vivo prove at the last IPPE.

Dear Haroon, Hi I am working with a company with similar strains of Probiotics and Let us try to answer your question in this way: A). The vegetative form of Bacillus bacteria grows with a temperature optimum between 30 and 40 °C but spores are mostly resistant to 95-100 C. B). Spores that form in Bacillus type bacteria provide dormancy at high temperature because enzyme proteins change shape ...

Damien Preveraud, thank you for your response. Can you please elaborate a bit on thermostability of this probiotic? Will it withstand ~90C that’s usually observed in our country during Summer time? If yes, then what’s the technology behind?

In practical formulation, nutritionists usually consider P & Ca as per the recommendation of 'phytase company', keeping the rest of the nutrients escaped to provide benefit, if any, to birds. As for as terminology of 'P' is concerned, it's being used as 'non-phytate' and 'digestible'. The value of both is different for different sources (e.g.) MCP has 100% non-phytate P whereas its digestible val ...

Muhammad Farooq Don’t you think we here in Pakistan don’t follow AGP free diets strictly so it’s hard to observe noticeable difference over cost?

Saif Ul Haq actually, nature of protease should be known to have its effect and per se nature is a wider term so does the performance. We shouldn’t expect consistency of performance from enzymes as there are a lot of factors which deviate performance of enzymes, even phytase, but return on investment matters.
