Fish peptides used in South American poultry

21-09-2009 | |

Bluewave Marine Ingredients announces that commercial scale usage of its PerfectDigest Fish Peptide Isolate has began with various Feed & Grower companies in South America.

Luis Daqui, the Sr. Nutritionist for AgriPac / Balanfarina Feed company of Guayaquil shares that, "the initial inclusions have shown a catalytic affect of the Fish Peptide by helping the chick’s digestive tract to develop and to better convert all the other feed which is consumed. About 50g of dry matter FPi has been enough to improve FCR by several points and finish weights by more than 100g". Balanfarina is now incorporating FPi/FPC into their Poultry & Aqua Feeds with finished product available for export.
