β-Mannans (beta-galactomannans) are antinutritive fibres found in common feed ingredients, including soybean meal and other leguminous feeds. β-Mannans have a molecular pattern similar to some pathogens, which triggers a Feed-Induced Immune Response (FIIR) in pigs. This unnecessary innate immune system stimulation consumes energy and other valuable nutrients.
Hemicell™ breaks down β-mannans to spare energy for performance. Whilst most enzyme products are energy-releasing enzymes—they "open up" feed components the animal is unable to access on its own - Hemicell™ is a unique and patented energy-sparing enzyme. By breaking down β-mannans in feed, Hemicell™ minimises the metabolisable energy (ME) loss caused by the FIIR from β-mannans, allowing more energy to be available for growth and performance.
