What is CIBENZA® DP100?
CIBENZA DP100 is a broad spectrum, heat stable protease enzyme from Novus. Its ability to break down complex protein structures makes it an important part of swine diets around the world. CIBENZA DP100 has demonstrated particular effectiveness in alleviating gut health challenges in piglets, due to its ability to neutralize glycinin and ß-conglycinin. These proteins, found in soybean meal, are allergenic to piglets and can cause significant gut health and performance challenges.
Why CIBENZA DP100 for Piglets?
- “Post-weaning lag” can be partly attributed to a piglet’s inability to cope with soy-based diets
- Glycinin and ß-conglycinin make up about 40 percent and 30 percent of the proteins found in soy, respectively
- Piglets are allergic to these proteins, leading to biological responses of gut inflammation, diarrhea, and reduced nutrient absorption
- CIBENZA DP100 protease enzyme hydrolyzes protein substrates in the diet – including glycinin and ß-conglycinin
