New edition of Feed Tech is out now

The June issue of Feed Tech (number 5) has just been published. Feed Tech is the leading international magazine on feed production and applied nutrition.

In this issue, Thomas Jørgensen from Source Technology in Denmark explains how a new automatic sampler can save labour time during extrusion processes.

Medicine losses shrimp feed
Shravan Kumar Mishra and Joachim Hertrampf discuss how modified lecithin can prevent medicine losses in pellets. To administer medicines or vitamins to shrimps, the feed pellets are often soaked in a medicated oily mixture. However, substances are easily lost in the water and can therefore not fully absorbed by the animals. New insights show that if the pellets are wetted in an emulsion of fish oil, modified lecithin and the medicine, the losses are much lower.

Odour reducion
Odour emission during the production or processing of food and feed is often an unwelcome side effect. However, by using cold plasma technology, the smell can be reduced up to 95%. In the cover story, Håvard Vetrhus from Applied Plasma Physics in Norway reports on the latest insights.

Going green
Also in this issue, a review from the 24th Animal Health and Nutrition Symsosium, organised by Alltech. This year focus was on "going green". Vincent ter Beek and Emmy Koeleman visited the symposium and clarify the topics that were presented.
