Helping nutrition happen: Palatability

Palatability, Adisseo

Palatability is a driver of feed intake

In nature, it is necessary for animals to be able to select from a wide variety of potential foods to satisfy their daily nutrient requirement, whilst avoiding substances that may be potentially harmful. The chemical composition of a feed determines its flavor to a great extent, that is, its taste and odor. Recent research into the mechanisms of taste and smell in mammals has identified sensitivity to five primary tastes, which are believed to be associated with the nutrient content of a feed. Sweet, Salty and Umami (Savory) tastes tend to be associated with feeds that contain nutrients that aid the well-being of animals. Sour and Bitter tastes indicate spoiled feed, or the presence of toxins. It is the association of smell and taste with post-digestion metabolic feedback that aids the animal to make an informed choice on what to eat.

A heritage of 50 years in helping nutrition happen

Adisseo has more than 50 years of experience in providing solutions to enhance the natural feeding behavior of animals. Our solutions are species-specific formulated and are targeted to a special application. Palatability solutions show their benefits at two different levels of production.

At the feed mill level: nutrition can only start when a feed is eaten

  • Flexibility when formulating rations at lowest cost
  • Improving feed palatability
  • Masking unpalatable components, such as micro ingredients, minerals and medication
  • Providing a uniform and enhanced flavor profile

At the farm level: an optimal feed intake is rarely achieved

  • Improving feed intake, especially in animals with high nutritional demand (i.e. lactating animals )
  • Sustaining feed intake during periods of stress (i.e. Heat stress, weaning)
  • Stimulating appetite and early feed acceptance for young animals
