| About GNC Bioferm Feed Enzymes.. |
GNC Bioferm enzymes have broad application across target species and target cereals.
Optimal results from diets containing cereals high in non-starch polysaccharides such as wheat, barley, oats, triticale, and rye require enzyme supplementation. There is growing recognition that enzymes assist in the utilization of other cereals (corn, sorghum) and protein sources (soybean, canola, sunflower meals). All GNC Bioferm enzymes are uniquely suited to these applications because of the wide range of secondary enzymes and co-factors that facilitate degradation of intact cell walls of all feed ingredients. Enzymes improve digestibility, growth, and feed conversion. Enzymes are conducive to cleaner animals, cleaner barns due to improved litter/fecal quality, and cleaner eggs in laying operations. Hygiene and sound environmental conditions are critical items in todays animal industry with reduced reliance upon antibiotics, and growing public concerns with biosafety.
Endofeeds (Reg. No. 982189) principal enzyme components are β-glucanase and xylanase. Endofeed rapidly breaks down the viscosity caused by β-glucan released during digestion of barley, or oats. The standard addition rate is 250 g per tonne, although levels up to 500 g may be warranted in some circumstances. A common program is to supply 400 g in the starter (or pre-starter diets) where the greatest need occurs, then reduce the level to 250 g in grower/finisher diets. Endofeeds second predominate enzyme is xylanase, which degrades xylan released during the digestion of wheat, triticale, rye, or corn. Endofeed is also available in a concentrate form (DC).
Endofeed W (Reg. No. 981350) contains fifty per cent more xylanase than Endofeed, making it the preferred choice for diets high in wheat, rye, or triticale. Endofeed W also contains sufficient β-glucanase for diets containing up to 25 % barley. Again, Endofeed W is normally added at a rate of 250 g per tonne, although up to 500 g is acceptable.
Endofeed W is also available in a concentrate form (DC)
Amylofeed (Reg No. 480230) is specifically designed for baby pigs. Amylofeed contains β-glucanase and xylanase to facilitate digestion of cereal cell wall constituents. Amylofeed also contains α-amylase which is limiting during the crucial transition from sows milk to solid food. Amylofeed added at 500 g per tonne of complete feed is an important supplement for baby pigs at weaning time. Depending on the diet, Amylofeed may be replaced by either Endofeed or Endofeed W once this critical period has passed.
Profile: High potency multi-enzyme products intended for poultry or piglet diets. The multi-enzyme complexes in GNC Bioferm products target non-starch polysaccharide across feed ingredients thus maximizing flexibility in feed formulation.
GNC Bioferm products contain Aspergillus niger or Aspergillus oryzae fermentation product with barley malt sprouts dehydrated as carrier and standardizer.
Light brown powder with particle size between 50-200 microns and specific gravity of 2.5 cm3 /gram.
The products are compatible with all feed macro- and micro-ingredients. Particle size is compatible with low inclusion rates and premix applications.
Standard packaging is 20 kg woven poly bag with moisture resistant plastic lining.
Stability tests under dry warehouse conditions show no changes in enzyme activity during a 36 month period. Enzyme activity is guaranteed for a storage period of 24 months.
Handling and Safety:
No withdrawal period is required as products are free of antimicrobial activity. Avoid inhalation of dust in accordance with standard feed manufacturing practices.
