Feed Cost Savings

Feed is the major input cost when it comes to poultry production and can account for up to 70% of total production costs in certain parts of the world. With soybean meal prices at a high level, the cost of including proteins/amino acids in feed ingredients continues to increase. Due to raw material scarcity and high cost, producers have learned to balance costs by using a variety of raw material sources available locally. Animal producers taking advantage of lower-cost alternative protein sources may discover these ingredients are not as readily absorbed or digested, leading to diminished performance compared with corn-soy diets. With dietary proteins not completely utilized by the animal, there is potential to improve amino acid utilization by supplementing animal diets with proteolytic enzymes that have appropriate activity and stability and are cost effective for feed applications.


Improve protein and amino acid utilization by supplementing animal diets with CIBENZA DP100/EP150 protease enzymes that have high enzyme activity, effective in hydrolyzing both plant and animal protein and is cost effective for feed applications to manage the high raw material feed cost.

  • Broad spectrum serine protease from Bacillus licheniformis
  • Effective in hydrolyzing protein from both plant and animal origin and anti-nutritional factors (i.e. trypsin inhibitors)
  • EU registered as zootechnical additive (ECN 4d12)

CIBENZA® DP100 complements the animal’s endogenous enzymes to hydrolyze less digestible proteins. CIBENZA DP100 allows producers to incorporate these ingredients without sacrificing performance. It works to make the indigestible portion of feed ingredients more available to the animal by degrading components so they are more easily absorbed into the digestive system. The protease contained in CIBENZA DP100 serves to supplement the naturally present proteases in the animal’s intestinal tract. This supplemental level of protease allows for a more complete digestion of the protein fraction of feed ingredients. Therefore, the enhanced digestion results in more amino acids.
