Kemin offers new testing service to evaluate oils and fats
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.
Numerous analyses performed by Kemin scientists have found that up to 30 percent variations in AME values of single oil.
Why use LET?
- The Fatty Acids profile is the identity card of fats and oils
- In depth knowledge of non-lipid components allows to estimate the diluting factors
- Provides real energy value that allows formulating feed precisely without animal trials
When to use LET?
- Characterize new fat and oil sources
- To check your current oil/fat on exact nutritional value and oxidative status
- To increase feed formulation precision
“The Lipid Evaluation Test is a critical tool for our customers to maximize the efficiency of supplemented fats and oils in poultry diets and it is our continued commitment of Kemin to deliver advanced technologies and services,” said Mr. Samraj Jeyachandran, Sr Vice President at Kemin. “With this new service, nutritionists can have a clear, accurate understanding of the nutritional and quality status of oils and fats in order to make informed decisions on their use, and ultimately, to optimize feed formulations and profitability.”
Along with accurate and informed testing services, Kemin offers solutions, such as LYSOFORTE® Liquid which has been shown to reduce nutritional energy differences and enhance the utilization of energy from oils and fats in combination with an antioxidant program, therefore, leading to improved feed conversion ratios and lower production costs.
