Natuphos® E Quick Test
As a pioneer in the field of enzymes in animal nutrition, BASF launched Natuphos®, the first phytase, more than 30 years ago. Since then, nutrients such as phosphorus, other minerals and amino acids present in feed can be better utilized. With BASF Natuphos® E, the first commercial hybrid-6-phytase, BASF is once again setting a new standard in feed phytase technology from which our customers and partners in the feed industry can benefit.
Natuphos® E is produced by our proven Aspergillus niger technology at the BASF headquarter in Germany. This novel enzyme molecule is of bacterial origin and was created using a unique enzyme engineering method. The new technology results in unprecedented enzyme stability. The efficient phosphorous release provides tangible benefits – for feed mixers, integrators as well as the environment.

1 At pelleting temperatures above 90 ºC, it is recommended to test for phytase retention as pelleting conditions vary greatly.
2 The contents indicated are minimum amounts of active substance. GMO status: Our products are not subject to labelling and traceability acc. to the European regulation (EC) 1829/2003 and (EC) 1830/2003. BSE/TSE status: The above-mentioned products do not fall under the scope of the Regulation (EC) No 999/2001 (current consolidated version), laying down the rules for the prevention, control, and eradication of certain transmissible spongiform encephalopathies.

Granulates: Extraordinary pelleting stability
Our Natuphos® E granulates are off-white in color, virtually dust-free with a narrow particle size distribution. A homogeneous distribution in feeding stuffs can be obtained using standard mixing procedures.
The granulate formulations exhibit a superior stability and are recommended for pelleted feed, up to pelleting temperatures of 95 ºC. The hybrid 6-phytase enzyme molecule is protected by formulation using a highly sophisticated and IP-protected process, while uncompromising its release from pelleted feed in the animal.
Powders: High pelleting and premix stability
The free-flowing powders are beige to light brown in color. The uncoated powder formulations can be used for pelleting temperatures up to 85 ºC, and are predominantly recommended for all mash feeds. The economically interesting formulation furthermore exhibits a good stability in base mixes and premixes.
Liquids: Ideal for post-pelleting application
The liquid Natuphos® E formulations are light to medium brown, clear fluids without any turbidities or suspending particles. This ensures an optimal application by post-pelleting systems onto the cooled pellets since the outstanding product quality prevents nozzle blocking at the highest level possible. Over the last two decades, BASF has gained a vast experience in installing post-pellet liquid application (ppla) systems. With appropriate equipment the liquid formulation of Natuphos® E is sprayed onto the cooled pellets. BASF can assist in sourcing these PPLA systems.
All Natuphos® E formulations can be readily mixed with our nonstarch polysaccharide (NSP) enzymes. The unique 3-in-1 combination product Natuphos® E 5000 Combi G/L is a mixture of Natuphos® E (hybrid 6-phytase) and Natugrain® TS (endo-1,4-xylanase and endo-1,4-beta-glucanase) and facilitates stock management and application by enabling you to use one additive instead of two at the inclusion level of only one.
For pigs, poultry and various aquacultural species 100 - 2000 FTU/kg* of complete compound feed.
