New spray drier for Alltech's yeast facility

Alltech recently expanded their yeast facility in São Pedro in Brazil with an additional new state-of-the-art spray dryer. This was needed to meet the increasing demand for the feed additive NuPro.

The new rocket like spray dryer is constructed of stainless steel and is capable of producing over three truck loads of NuPro a day to meet the escalating demand for this nucleotide enhancer. Sales of NuPro has been increased with 58% globally in 2007.

Role of nucleotides in animal feed
NuPro is a functional nutrient source manufactured from the inner cell contents of a specific strain of the yeast saccharomyces cerevisae1026. It is a rich source of highly digestible amino acids as well as having high nucleotide content. Nucleotides hold a specific function in the development of skeletal and cardiac muscle, hepatic and intestinal tissue, and the development and maintenance of the immune system.
