Phytase Summit Conclusions Presented In Eindhoven

NETHERLANDS - AB Vista presented the findings from the International Phytase Summit at its first exclusive regional seminar held at the Evoluon Conference Centre in Eindhoven on 3 November 2010.

The International Phytase Summit, held in Washington DC, was a unique interactive technical symposium involving many of the world's leading academic authorities in the field of phytase and phytate.

The first AB Vista-sponsored regional IPS seminar was enthusiastically attended by nearly 60 delegates from the Netherlands and Belgium. Discussions at the seminar included a presentation by Dr Mike Bedford, AB Vista's Research Director, on rethinking phytase and phytate. This was followed by guest speaker Dr Jan Dirk van der Klis of Schothorst Feed Research speaking about the influence of feeding factors on the effectiveness of phytase. Dr Hadden Graham, Technical Director for AB Vista and Dr Rob ten Doeschate, AB Vista's Regional Technical Manager for Europe concluded the event with talks about the application of phytase including the new super-dosing concept.

Commenting on the seminar, Dr Bedford said: "The seminar was well received by all who attended; we received very positive feedback. The mixture of scientific research and practical application information made the speeches interesting for everyone present. I am looking forward to sharing our findings with an even wider audience at the regional event being held in conjunction with Eurotier."

Also commenting on the seminar, Peter Sengers, Feed Division Manager of Barentz said: "The IPS phytase seminar organized jointly by AB Vista and Barentz for Benelux feed markets was presented on an incredibly high scientific level. The excellent follow up discussions highlighted some new insights into phytate, and encouraged people to look at phytase with a broader scope than has previously been implemented by the feed industry. This seminar illustrated the real value of adding a phytase to the diet, and the resulting further costs savings that the feed industry can enjoy."
