Elanco Animal Health has launched a new nutrient-sparing enzyme, Hemicell XT, for pig and poultry producers.
Hemicell XT is a supplement that enhances gut-health by supporting nutrient uptake in pigs; meaning it has the potential to reduce overall feed costs by improving the use of dietary energy in animals. The XT’s enzyme concentration is 2.25 times higher than Elanco’s original Hemicell HT formulation, it can therefore be applied in various methods: in complete feeds, premixes, or speciality mixes.
Elanco technical nutritionist consultant Agustina Rodriguez explains how Hemicell XT is an advanced solution and formulation, compared to existing market options: “The energy-sparing enzyme performs in the same way as Hemicell HT, but it contains an upgraded carrier that is proven to further enhance diet quality.”
“This change to the formulation allows for improved flowability and mixing with a ration. It results in a larger, more uniform particle size – offering greater uniformity and reduced dust during application.”
Plus, Ms Rodriguez concludes that the Hemicell XT, with its increased concentration and lower dose, takes up half the amount of storage and transportation space compared to the original Hemicell HT.
