Axtra® PHY

Fast-acting phytase


Axtra® PHY is a fast-acting phytase feed enzyme, sourced from a Buttiauxella sp. bacterium. It’s proven to improve poultry and swine performance, reduce phosphorus waste, and boost profitability.


Key Benefits

  • Fast-acting: Axtra® PHY works quickly in the digestive tract to release phosphorus from phytate and has proven highly activity at low pH. This early action increases the rate of early phytate breakdown to release more phosphorus overall and successfully overcome phytate anti-nutritional effects.
  • Flexible and optimized dosing: Our data-driven optimized dosing recommendations ensure you always deliver the correct phytase dose for your individual operational needs. This well-researched approach means you can be confident of maximizing results and optimizing overall production costs.

Proven results

Reduced anti-nutritional effects of phytate has resulted in performance improvements over negative controls in our extensive animal trials and exceptional customer results, such as:

  • For pigs, up to 7% bodyweight gain (BWG) improvement and 3% feed conversion ratio (FCR) improvement.
  • For broilers, up to 9% BWG improvement and 5% FCR improvement.

Replace inorganic phosphate without negatively impacting animal performance.
