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 feeds1.  β-Mannans have a molecular pattern similar to some pathogens, which trigger a Feed-Induced Immune Response (FIIR) in poultry2,3. 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 bird is unable to access on its own - Hemicell™ is an energy-sparing enzyme. By breaking down β-mannans in feed3,4, Hemicell™ minimises the metabolisable energy (ME) loss caused by the FIIR from β-mannans, allowing more energy to be available for growth and performance4.
