Animal Feed Additives
Taminco’s organic acid-based solutions are used to improve the feed safety of compound feed, feed ingredients and agro-industrial by-products by protecting against the growth of bacteria.
Virtually all foodstuffs containing fats or oils will be susceptible to oxidative rancidity. As this process progresses the sensorial characteristics and nutritional value of the food will deteriorate. The use of Antioxidants effectively delays this process.
Alpha-monoglycerides are a class of glycerides that are composed of a fatty acid linked to the sn1-position of glycerol via an ester bond and are known for their strong antimicrobial effects.
Biosecurity in agriculture is a term used to describe a range of measures put in place to limit pathogen spread between livestock on individual holdings as well as across the country.
Electrolytes are blends of acids, bases or salts; such as sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and chloride. They are fed in measured amounts to improve the acid-base balance. Sodium is the main electrolyte found in body fluids and is involved in fluid balance and blood pressure control.
The intensive animal production industry requires animals to grow fast with a minimum of feed consumed. Diets are extremely rich in nutrients, one of them being energy. Fats and oils may represent more than 25% of this energy.
Increasing the efficiency by which animals convert feed into protein and shortening the cycle time of production has become increasingly important. Traditional feed costs, already high at around 70% of total production budgets, have escalated in line with a growing demand for meat, fish, egg and dairy products.
Moulds are ubiquitous and unavoidable contaminants in all animal feeds. Virtually all animal feeds contain moulds and viable mould spores which continue to pose a threat to grain quality.
A flavour is a preparation that contains different substances, in a concentrated form, whose active objective is to provide odour and, sometimes, taste to the feed. The addition of these compounds to feed animal production is essential for several reasons
Functional Supplementary Feed
Supplement for reduction of negative effect of heat stress in cattle. Complementary feed for optimized production performance under.
Osmolytes help maintain cellular fluid balance by interacting with water molecules. As a highly efficient osmolyte, Betafin® natural betaine accumulates in cells protecting them from osmotic stress and dehydration by maintaining their water and ion balance.
Multiple scientific studies have proven the positive effects of secondary plant compounds on gut health in livestock animals. These substances support digestion and improve the utilization of nutrients.
In food, effect of color is very important to determine effects of raw ingredients to the finished product; its shelf life or changes due to processing; ensure suppliers are guaranteeing a consistent colored material.
Our Vitaminosal premixes consist of custom made combinations of functional ingredients – such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes that meet the highest quality industry standards – in one final product.
Prebiotics are compounds in food that induce the growth or activity of beneficial microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. The most common example is in the gastrointestinal tract, where prebiotics can alter the composition of organisms in the gut microbiome.
Although the first use of probiotics dates back thousands of years, recognition of the benefits of probiotic use in poultry, swine and ruminant nutrition is a fairly recent phenomenon.
The inner quality of the egg and, more specifically of the albumin, is the most important quality factor, since it is the basis for the proper classification of eggs and has a very significant impact in their marketing.
Mycotoxins are substances naturally produced by moulds and fungi that are normally present as some form of defence for the organism. All natural materials, and many man-made ones, are subject to contamination by moulds and fungi.
Trace elements have an important role in various metabolic events in the body. Two broad categories of sources are available to supplement trace elements: inorganic and organic sources. Inorganic sources are the common sulphates, oxides, chlorides, carbonates of the element and they can differ in their bioavailability.
