Storage And Handling

Phytase should be stored under dark cool and dry conditions. When this is done the enzyme may maintain good stability for 3 4 months. Refrigeration or freezing may extend its shelf life whereas high storage temperature certainly decreases its activity. Caution should be given in storing phytase mixed with vitamin and mineral premixes as some of their components may have deleterious effects on phytase stability. There are few reports on immune responses of workers who have inhalation exposure to phytase. The hypersensitivity symptoms can be alleviated or avoided by implementing local exhaust systems and wearing protective clothing and masks with P2 filters.[8]
