The majority of phosphorus in poultry feed is stored in Phytate form, which is indigestible. Phytate complexes with many minerals, including iron, zinc, magnesium, and calcium, and also non-selectively binds to proteins, inhibiting digestibility in animals.
Physnap, the fastest-acting 6 – E.coli phytase expressed on Aspergillus Niger, completely releases phosphorus from the upper digestive tract. Phytase (Myo-inositol hexakisphosphate phosphohydrolase) catalyzes the stepwise removal of phosphate from phytic acid or its salt phytate in order to reduce the binding capacity to nutrients and promote animal phosphorus utilization. The complex structure released amino acids, protein, minerals, and phosphorus. Because nutrients are absorbed better in the small intestine, animals supplemented with Physnap grow faster.
