BergaZym P, the enzyme-complex microgranulate
from Berg+Schmidt, helps to save money. That is the conclusion reached
after comprehensive growth and metabolism studies conducted in many places
throughout the world and most recently at the Bangkok Animal Research Centre of
Ajinomoto Co. Ltd. in Thailand.
BergaZym P boosts the conversion of nutrients in broilers and generally in poultry fed with
nutrient-reduced rations. Against a background of constantly rising
prices for the raw materials of feed such
as maize, extracted soybean meal and soy
and palm oils, approaches to more efficient
feed conversion in poultry are meeting
with more and more interest. BergaZym P
helps to make better use of expensive raw materials like maize and soybeans and
increase the feed value of cheaper altern-
atives such as millet, rice polishings, rapeseed,
cotton-seed or palm-kernel meal
and dried brewer‘s grain.
BergaZym P is a multi-enzyme complex
consisting of endo-ß-1,4-xylanase derived
from Trichoderma longibrachiatum, endo- ß-1,4-glucanase, amylase and
protease and the side activities cellulase and galactomannase. These enzymes have
synergistic effects in the digestion of nutrients
from feed and thus increase the bioavailability
of the nutrients for the fowls.
This is confirmed by the latest study at the
Bangkok Animal Research Centre, where BergaZym P
was added to both standard
and nutrient-reduced feed
5% less apparently metabolizable
energy [AME], 10%
less protein, amino acids,
calcium and phosphorus). The results of the four-day metabolism
test are shown in the following table.
