What is phytase superdosing?

Superdosing of phytase has been a popular conceptfor several years already. That’s a practice in the feed industry where higher than standard conventional levels of the enzyme phytase are added to animal feed. As a rule, nowadays most of the phytases are applied at 500 U/kg. Superdosing phytase is considered when applied more than 1000 U/kg of an enhanced third generation phytase in the diet.

Why this practice is used?

The phytate degradation is not complete with the standard applied levels of phytase enzyme. Actually, there is still opportunity for the phytase enzymes with improved hydrolysis rates to completely degrade the residual phytate in the diets. Thus, the idea of SUPERDOSING was born.


Superdosed phytase helps animals digest and utilize higher quantities of the available nutrients (like phosphorus).

This reduces costs by increasing feed efficiency and reducing inorganic phosphorous addition to feed.

Phytase superdosing in animal feed offers substantial environmental benefits. By enhancing phosphorus absorption and reducing the reliance on mined phosphates, it conserves finite resources and minimizes water pollution risks. This sustainable approach promotes eco-friendly farming practices while optimizing animal nutrition.


•    Provides multienzyme cocktail and superdosed phytase
•    Phytase taken to a higher level
•    The best substitution of phytase (with superdosing) and multienzyme complex at once
•    Enhances energy value of the feed
•    Removes anti-nutrient effect and improves
•    Monogastric animals’ performance
•    With a dose of 100 g/t feed you supply 1500 Units phytase per kilogram feed
•    Improves feed digestibility and increases assimilation of the basic nutritive substances – proteins, carbohydrates, fats.
•    Microgranulated, dust-free product
•    NSP breakdown
•    Enhances the animals' natural enzyme system and supplements the missing enzymes
•    Provides better variety of formulations for compound feed. At the same time, it allows the inclusion of rich in fibers and non-starch polysaccharides (celluloses, hemicelluloses, xylans, arabans) cheaper feed materials – wheat, barley, maize, oats, triticale, wheat bran, sunflower groats and expeller, alfalfa flour
•    Reduces FCR
•    Prebiotic effect
