AB Vista launches Econase® XT to Europe

AB Vista, international supplier of new generation micro-ingredients for the animal feed industry, announces the European approval of Econase® XT.

Econase® XT is the first and only intrinsically thermostable xylanase product available and has already revolutionised the xylanase market in Mexico, Brazil, the US and India, reports the company.

AB Vista’s Technical Director Dr. Hadden Graham: “Major feed producers in a number of territories are already using Econase® XT with excellent results. The new product gives producers confidence in performance thus increasing profitability.”

This revolutionary new enzyme has 3 key qualities:
- Intrinsic thermostability: The first xylanase on the market with the ability to survive high pelleting temperatures without the use of a coating.  Three independent tests carried out at Kolding Biotechnology Institute, Denmark, show that there is no loss of activity after steam conditioning up to 95°c for 30 sec followed by pelleting.
- Assayability: The level of enzyme activity in the feed can be reliably and accurately measured.
- Efficacy: Numerous independent trial results show the positive influence on animal performance.

Independent trials have already demonstrated the value of Econase® XT in both poultry and swine, and in feeds based on corn or wheat, leading to a better daily gain and improved feed conversion, AB Vista reports.

Richard Cooper, AB Vista Ceo: “This is a truly ground-breaking product which has the potential to revolutionise the reliability and consistency of xylanase use in animal feeds. Many agricultural businesses that purchase feed are facing difficult times at the moment, but the efficiency of Econase® XT lends itself to their requirements. The effectiveness of the enzyme in improving animal digestion means that it is able to provide animals with more nutrition via less feed, and therefore save money.”
