Hemicell™ (β-Mannanase)

The energy sparing enzyme

β-Mannans (beta-galactomannans) are antinutritive fibres found in common feed ingredients, including soybean meal and other leguminous feeds.1 β-Mannans have a molecular pattern similar to some pathogens, which triggers a Feed-Induced Immune Response (FIRR) in pigs. This unnecessary innate immune system stimulation consumes energy and other valuable nutrients.2,3
HemicellTM 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 – HemicellTM is an energy-sparing enzyme. By breaking down β-mannans in feed, HemicellTM minimises the metabolisable energy (ME) loss caused by the FIRR from β-mannans, allowing more energy to be available for growth and performance.3,4
