A commercial trial was conducted in a well-organized R&D facility,North India. The first objective of the trial was to compare broiler performance results of two different levels of Kemzyme® Protease on diets partially replaced with both essential amino acids and crude protein upto a fixed proportion.Also, on the other hand, the second objective was to evaluate the result of on top supplementation of Kemzyme® Protease upon commercial broiler performance parameters and return on investment (ROI). The trial consisted of five groups, i.e., positive control (T1) with no enzymes, negative control (T2) with 0.9 % and 5 % replacement of crude protein (CP) and digestible amino acids (DAA) respectively, negative control diet with supplementation of Kemzyme® Protease @ 300 Grams per ton of feed (T3), negative control diet with supplementation of Kemzyme® Protease @ 500 Grams per ton of feed (T4) and positive control diet (T1) supplemented with 150 Grams of Kemzyme® Protease. The birds were maintained upon a corn, soya and MBM rich diets for 42 days and final results were evaluated for body weight (BW), feed intake, feed conversion ratio (FCR), cost of production (COP) &return on investment (ROI). Results showed that the Kemzyme @ 300 grams per tonof feed treated group as well as on top supplementation @ 150 Grams/Ton feed performed the best in terms of FCR and ROI. Performance of T4 was almost similar to control group with a reduction in COP by Rs 0.65/- per Kg body weight of Broiler in case of T4. The overall trial strongly supports that Kemzyme® Protease in broiler diets with a supplementation of 5 % digestible amino acid and 0.9 % CP as well as on top supplementation of broiler diets with Kemzyme® Protease can be a successful strategy for better bird performance, ROI and lesser COP compared to non-treated diets.view more»
Dietary oils and fats; as most concentrated energy source in poultry diets has an opportunity to explore beyond rancidity and free fatty acids for ascertaining the quality. In order to understand the nutritional quality of oils and fats Kemin has added a new customer service tool, Lipid Evaluation Test (LET) during early 2016. It has been evaluated through 200 plus oil/fat samples through LET across India and Bangladesh to understand the nutritional quality which helps the poultry feed producers with accurate information for feed formulation. Surprisingly, most of them did not meet the expectations of the energy value used in the feed formulation. The energy variation is up to 35% downward than the energy considered for various fats and oils. This not only leads to energy variation in the feed but also alters the energy/lysine ratio and digestible amino acid ratio which further impacts feed conversion and economics.
Des Moines, Iowa – Kemin Food Technologies, a leading provider of customized shelf life extension and food safety solutions for food and beverage industries, is pleased to introduce three new members in the fats and oils group. Jody Jenkin has joined the team in the role of Product Manager, Chandra Ankolekar, Ph.D. as Technical Service Manager, and Tony Bombard as Technical Sales Manager.
DES MOINES, Iowa (January 3, 2017) – Based on extensive research conducted by Kemin Industries, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has approved the use of chromium propionate as a source of chromium in swine and dairy diets, which took effect on December 15, 2016. Kemin markets the feed additive as KemTRACE® Chromium in collaboration with its exclusive distribution partner, Agri-Marketing Corporation, based in Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Québec.

Des Moines, Iowa (January 31, 2017) – Kemin Industries, a global nutritional ingredient company that uses science to create solutions and products for half of the world’s population, has renewed its agreement to continue as a corporate partner with The World Food Programme (WFP), the world's leading humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. WFP programs reach some 80 million people in 80 countries each year with food assistance in emergencies and programs that help communities improve nutrition and build resilience.
A healthy gastrointestinal system can help poultry achieve optimal production of meat or eggs. The gastrointestinal system for chicken has two important functions: digestion & absorption and immunity. The intestinal mucosa provides an effective barrier between unfriendly luminal content and the host internal tissues. A dynamic balance between the mucus layer, epithelial cells, microbiota and immune cells in the intestine is of importance for the intestinal barrier functions.

The risk of mycotoxins entering the feed chain is almost unavoidable, and poses a serious threat to the health and productivity of poultry birds. More than 1,000+ mycotoxins have been discovered, and recent studiesshow climatic changescan also significantly increase the risk of mycotoxins. In the last few years, we have seen sporadic incidences of pesticide toxicity in the Indian subcontinent, which have caused severe losses to poultry producers.
Kemin is launching a new customer service tool to better assess the oxidative quality and nutritional value of oils and fats in feed. The Lipid Evaluation Test provides nutritionists with accurate lipid profiles containing the apparent metabolizable energy (AME) values, oxidative status andto standardize variations of oils and fats in animal nutrition.
Oils and fats are critical ingredients in feed formulations due to their high energy-yielding potential. However, like many raw materials, these lipids come from a wide variety of sources and are prone to large variations in their nutritive value. “Traditionally, nutritionists analysed oils and fats using the standard energy value, which our researchers have found to be quite different from the actual values. With the help of Lipid Evaluation Test, nutritionists can formulate feed with more accurate lipid nutrient values and to get more standard and reliable performances.view more»
CHENNAI, India – June 2016 – The Animal Feed Industry relies on high-quality laboratory data to ensure quality and consistency in feed production. Laboratory Analysts in the Feed Industry generate critical data for the continuous successful operations of the feed industry. Currently the industry is facing challenges due to the high price and poor quality of the raw materials, which has led to adulteration in the feed ingredients resulting in poor performance in birds.
