Kemin has launched a bio-surfactant, which revolutionises the application process by directly dosing the bio-surfactant into the oil and fat application line.
The product* is a naturally derived liquid bio-surfactant that is added directly into the oil or fat line during feed production. Mixing the bio-surfactant with the oil and fats early enhances its efficacy and helps standardise the energy value of the oil and hence improves the digestion and absorption of nutrients in feed.
“Traditionally bio-surfactants are added as a dry product to the mixer with other feed raw materials. Their benefits to improve various steps in lipid digestion, such as emulsification, hydrolysis and nutrient absorption are well known. Consequently, the addition of a bio-surfactant leads to a better utilisation of the energy from feed raw materials, resulting in improved feed conversion ratios, lower production costs and improved profitability,” explained Dr Monika Bieber, Lead Global Platform Manager.
The product has been launched in Europe, Middle East, India and in a number of markets in Asia. The product will launch in additional countries upon registration.
