Complex Compositions and Conditions Made Simple
In feed production, the choice of the right exogenous enzyme combination is driven by the raw material composition of the formula (feed substrate), target species and production conditions (heat treatment of the feed). The KEMZYME® range of products matches the different needs of the feed producers.
The Holistic Solution for All: KEMZYME® MAP
KEMZYME® MAP is a stabilized multi-enzyme formula for animals developed by Kemin to improve the digestibility of raw materials, increase the nutrient level, animal performance and reduce the cost of production. KEMZYME® MAP is based on patented NSP enzymes, multi-amylase and multi-protease.
Features of KEMZYME® MAP
• A unique combination of NSP enzymes, multi-amylase and multi-protease
• A combination of fungal and bacterial enzymes to ensure activity in a wider pH range
• Having synergistic actions of multiple enzymes
Enzyme systems in KEMZYME® MAP
• NSP Multi-Enzymes
All enzyme raw materials used in the KEMZYME® MAP formulation are screened and selected by Kemin from an extensive database with over 100 enzymes. The NSP enzymes (xylanase, cellulase, beta glucanase, and pectinase) in KEMZYME MAP are specially designed to release energy from the multi-substrate diet.
Dietary starch is a polymer made up of glucose, which is connected by two types of bonds – α 1,4 and α 1,6. Each bond is classified as “endo” and “exo” based on location in the molecule. To maximize starch digestion, both bonds have to be hydrolyzed from all sides. The multi-amylase system (α amylase, glucoamylase, and pullulanase) ensures the breakage of exo and endo bonds to achieve better starch digestibility.
Many commercial feed enzymes use a “neutral protease” enzyme for the improvement of protein utilization in animal diets. Kemin’s patented multi-protease system (acidic, neutral and alkaline proteases) demonstrate that the combined application of acidic, neutral and alkaline proteases releases more amino acids compared to neutral protease and significantly improve the bioavailability of nitrogen in vivo.
