Enzyme Research at Novus

ippe-15-85-editedDuring the 2015 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), Dr. Jeffery Escobar, who heads up the physiology research at Novus International, headlined the Novus Forum on the protease enzyme.

“Protease is an enzyme that creates proteins. It will take protein into either peptides or amino acids and is ultimately what the animals are going to use for growth and to deposit muscle.” Jeffery says the use of protease is complex, “but the simple way to look at it is there are different approaches we can take. One option is to manage the variability and quality of the ingredients and the amount of digestible amino acids that the animals can obtain and another option is to use protease to enhance the gut environment of the animals.”
