Hemicell®

Hemicell® (β-mannanase) is a nutrient-sparing enzyme that breaks down β-mannans. β-Mannans (beta-galactomannans) are antinutritive fibers found in common feed ingredients, including soybean meal.1 β-Mannans have a molecular pattern similar to some pathogens, which triggers a Feed-Induced Immune Response (FIIR) in poultry 2-3  and swine.2,4-7 This unnecessary innate immune system stimulation consumes energy and other valuable nutrients.

Don't Waste Energy on False Alarms

Feed Conversion Icon

Breaks Down ß-Mannans

Since Hemicell breaks down β-mannans, energy is not wasted on feed-induced immune response (FIIR).

Increased Energy Icon

Helps Animals Channel More Energy for Growth

Energy and nutrients that would be used to respond to FIIR can be used for poultry growth and performance.8

Easy Mixing Icon

Can Be Used With Other Products

It is safe for use with other nonstarch polysaccharide (NSP) enzymes and antibiotics.

Choose Hemicell to break down β-mannans in poultry and swine diets, so energy is not wasted on FIIR.

Choose From Multiple Formulations To Meet Your Needs

Hemicell is available in dry and liquid formulations — including a heat-tolerant version — offering flexibility in use and dose range.
