Hemicell™ HT is a heat tolerant ß-mannanase that degrades ß-mannans in the diet to spare energy. Up to 90 kcal / kg of metabolizable energy (ME) saved in the diet where the enzyme is used. ß-mannans are non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) of the hemicellulosic fraction present in most raw materials. The highest proportions of soluble ß-mannan are in soybean meal, maize, sunflower and rapeseed meal, barley, wheat. This molecular structure is close to that present on the surface of many pathogens. The innate immune system of chickens, turkeys and pigs confuses the ß-mannans in the diet with an invasive pathogen. This unnecessary activation of the immune system leads to intestinal inflammation and wasted energy up to 90kcal / kg of ME that will not benefit growth. With Hemicell™ HT, you can spare energy and improve intestinal integrity.
