Visitors to the AB Vista stand at SPACE 2018 will be able to take away the EMEA Phytate Reference Guide – the first for the animal feed industry, listing phytate reference values compiled specifically for European, Middle Eastern and African feed markets.
The guide contains phytate levels and variability for a wide range of raw materials, including cereals and protein materials, as well as for different finished feeds.
William Greenwood, Technical Services Manager at AB Vista, says “these valuable insights from data provide companies with an improved nutritional picture or ‘feed intelligence’ to help optimise their feed formulation”.
