Unlock the potential of starch with amylases

Essential to animal metabolism, glucose is ingested in the form of starch, usually from cereal grains in the feed. As most animal diets contain 400-500 g/kg of starch, successfully converting it into glucose is critically important for optimal energetic status. Due to its molecular structure, however, starch is variably digested by swine and poultry. The addition of in-feed exogenous amylase has shown potential to support the efficient digestion of dietary starch and improve performance.
