Adisseo feed Preservation

Importance of Feed Preservation

Good animal performance starts with a well-balanced and optimized diet which suits the animal needs. Once the diet is formulated it is of paramount importance to preserve the quality, efficacy, and performance of feed until the moment it is consumed by the animal. Deviations between the theoretical formulated diet and the one fed to the animal, have a vast impact on animal health and performance, profitability, safety, and sustainability.

Decreased animal performance due to lower intake

Feed Preservation, Animal Performance, Adisseo
Spoilage processes destruct valuable nutrients (energy, vitamins, proteins, …) and reduce the intestinal absorptive availability of several nutrients in the animal. In addition, degradation products are often unpalatable at very low concentrations. Therefore, feed/ingredients that are not well preserved, decrease the feed density and feed intake, which is detrimental for animal performance.

 

Animal health risk due to toxic reaction products

Not only can reaction products of deterioration be unpalatable, many are toxic to the animal. Well-known toxic reactive compounds are mycotoxins produced by molds. Less known is that reaction products of fat and oil oxidation, like free radicals or aldehydes, can be cytotoxic and must be prevented. Furthermore, reducing bacterial pressure is critical, especially in the case of Salmonella contamination of feed or drinking water.

 

Impaired profitability due to nutrient decay & microbial load

Loss of valuable nutrients impact animal performance or requires overdosing of certain feed ingredients sensitive to decay. In addition, contamination with foodborne pathogens (e.g. Salmonella) or mycotoxins (e.g. aflatoxins) can result in fines or other penalties.

 

Safety concern due to air quality, foodborne pathogens, and combustion

Mold growth and spores reduce the air quality which effects animal and human health. Foodborne pathogens create safety concerns for the end consumer. And in extreme occasions, oxidation of highly sensitive materials causes spontaneous combustion (e.g. fish meal and fish oil).

Decreased sustainability due to inefficient use of resources

Sustainability means improved and more efficient use of our resources: prevention of nutrient degradation is a vital pillar. The lower the nutrient loss, the higher the efficiency of feed and raw material usage and therefore more can be done with less.

Feed Preservation blocks

Preservation of feed and feed ingredients considers the following important steps:

  1. Start with high quality raw materials
  2. Store raw materials properly to prevent spoilage
  3. Protect feed ingredients during processing steps
  4. Store feed properly to prevent spoilage

Feed Preservation Block Adisseo

During these steps, quality preservation demands to act on 3 levels: limit microbial load, maintain chemical stability, and optimize physical properties of raw materials and feeds.

ADISSEO’S SOLUTIONS

Mold-Nil®

Mold-Nil® is a range of mold inhibitors which are made with a unique synergistic blend of active ingredients to combat molds and yeasts. The quality of feed and feed material is determined by its composition and its microbiological load. Especially the number of mould spores is an important factor. A mould inhibition program in line with the storage conditions and the nutrient availability is key to minimize post-harvest mould growth and mycotoxin production.

Benefits:

  • Keeps feed materials palatable and of a high nutritional value
  • Supports animal health and performance
  • Prevents the production of storage mycotoxins

Salmo-Nil®

Salmo-Nil® is an organic acid based product range that reduces the patoghenic pressure in the feed and food-chain and prevent the horizontal transmission.
The control of foodborn pathogens in the animal industry is one of the major challenges. Due to its complexity, several measurements need to be taken to reduce contamination, growth and survival whereas feed sanitation is an important pillar.

Benefits:

  • Decontamination of Salmonella critical raw materials and feed(stuffs)
  • Residual protection against re- and cross-contamination
  • Broad spectrum activity against other foodborne pathogens

Oxy-Nil®

Oxy-Nil® covers a complete antioxidant program to prevent losses due to autoxidation of raw materials and final products. Selecting the correct raw materials and their quality is the key to success when producing safe and high-quality feeds. It is therefore essential that raw materials, concentrates and feeds are not subjected to nutritional damage caused by autoxidation.

Benefits:

  • Safeguards the energy and nutritional value of feed(stuffs)
  • Prevents the production of cytotoxic and unpalatable reaction products of oxidation
  • Maintains the intestinal absorptive capacity and nutrient digestibility
  • Reduces the oxidative status of the animal

Evacide®

Evacide® prevents the horizontal transmission of foodborne pathogens through drinking water. Water is a key, but often forgotten nutrient in the dietary requirements of an animal. It is also an important vehicle for (enteric) pathogens and their horizontal transmission to livestock and poultry. Acidifying drinking water increases animal performance and lowers the pathogenic pressure.

Benefits:

  •  Improves drinking water hygiene
  • Supports feed intake and digestion
  • Reduces horizontal transmission of feed-borne pathogens

Nutri ® -Bind

Nutri®-Bind is a complete range of low inclusion pellet binders who support qualitative feed production. Modern approach to feed production requires high quality feed with an excellent visual quality (good appearance, dust-free, without cracks and uniform) as well as a superior technical quality (correct hardness and optimal durability).

Benefits:

  •  Improved pellet quality
  • More flexibility in formulation
  • Increased efficiency
  • Longer production life of equipment
