β-Mannans: the problem component in soybean meal
β-Mannans (beta-galactomannans) are antinutritive fibers found in common feed ingredients, including soybean meal and other leguminous feeds.1-4 β-Mannans have a molecular pattern similar to some pathogens, which triggers a Feed-Induced Immune Response (FIIR) in poultry.5-9 This unnecessary innate immune system stimulation consumes energy10,11 and other valuable nutrients.
Hemicell breaks down β-mannans to spare energy for performance
Most enzyme products are energy-releasing enzymes—they "open up" feed components the animal is unable to access on its own. Hemicell is different—it's a unique and patented energy-sparing enzyme. By breaking down β-mannans in soybean meal,12-15 Hemicell minimizes the metabolizable energy (ME) loss caused by the FIIR from β-mannans, allowing more energy to be available for growth and performance.10,13,16,17
Hemicell is a unique and patented enzyme produced by fermentation of Bacillus lentus bacteria. The active ingredient is β-Mannanase.
Recommended use program: Use Hemicell in diets containing 12% SBM or higher.
Energy reduction (for high-energy diets): Improved performance allows for a reduction of dietary energy up to 40 kcal/lb.
