Description: High protein/fiber biomass which is used as a feed enzyme to increase feed utilization efficiency of poultry rations was pelleted. Feed enzymes cause viscosity reduction and changes in nutrient absorption, improving the nutritional quality of feeds. However, the pelleting process may cause enzyme denaturation. Optimization studies were conducted by varying the initial moisture content of the biomass and the pelleting temperatures. Tests were done in the single-pelleting unit and the results were validated using the pilot-scale pellet mill. The initial moisture content levels of biomass was varied from 10 to 18% w.b. and pelletized at temperatures of 60, 75 and 90
Keywords: Feed enzymes, heat-sensitive protein/fiber biomass, pelleting, binders
