Axtra® PRO

Free the Protein


Axtra® PRO contains a single-activity protease that helps to unlock the full benefits of dietary protein by boosting its digestibility and increasing the availability of amino acids - even when quality protein is used in feed formulations.

Active throughout the digestive tract, Axtra® PRO has a pH range adapted to the bird physiology and wide substrate specificity; meaning it can cleave peptides at almost any position. This helps to supplement the animal’s endogenous proteases and ensure valuable amino acids are made available for muscle deposition and growth.


Key Benefits

  • Improved protein digestibility: Increases availability of amino acids for absorption; an action that boosts feed conversion ratio (FCR) and bodyweight gain (BWG).
  • Maintains gut health: Reduces levels of undigested protein reaching the hind gut, where it would otherwise act as a substrate for non-beneficial bacteria.
  • Improves environmental conditions: Reduces ammonia emissions and increases the welfare of both animals and farm workers.
  • Improves sustainability: Reduces reliance on soybean as a source of protein.
  • Increases profitability: Overcomes the low digestibility and variability of cheaper feed ingredients.
  • Creates a favorable nutribiotic state: Where nutrition, the microbiome and the gut and immune function interact to create balance in the gastrointestinal tract.
