Essential amino acids appear to be the most efficient nutrient for the stimulation of muscle protein synthesis in older and younger subjects, though the cellular mechanisms responsible are under investigation. In addition to being the precursors for protein synthesis, essential amino acids may directly stimulate the synthetic process. Among the essential amino acids, branched chain amino acids ...

Gut health across multiple species has become a key area of focus in product development. On the human side, formulators are looking to take live probiotics into areas that were once unreachable; and on the animal side, they seek to improve digestive processes in monogastric animals (which, like humans, have single-chambered stomachs). Using microencapsulated delivery systems and slow-release a ...

A feed ingredient manufacturer had contracted an encapsulation company to produce coated minerals for use in a feed product for monogastric animals. She said that in warm weather, the material turned into rock-hard little pellets. If they were to mix the pellets in with the feed, the particle size distribution would be so different as to cause separation. So they tried adding a flow agent, but t ...

Lately we’ve been fielding lots of questions from manufacturers surrounding the use of probiotics in consumer food, companion animal and feed products, and it’s no wonder. The global demand for these “good bacteria” is growing fast due to the diverse therapeutic benefits they provide. In fact, promoting a healthy balance of gut bacteria improves digestion, immunity, weig ...

Believe it or not, most of the encapsulation and microencapsulation techniques in use today—spray drying, spray chilling and fluidized beds, among them—haven’t evolved much since they were first introduced during the World War II era. But market conditions and consumer demand have changed dramatically since then, along with the need for more sophisticated food and feed producti ...

Enzymes are one of the many types of protein in any biological system involved in anabolic and catabolic pathways of digestion and metabolism. They are essential in catalyzing the rate of a reaction, but are not themselves altered by the reaction, and tend to act on one or a limited number of compounds known as substrates. Digestive enzymes are produced in every living organism, from the highes ...

Concerns exist as to whether use of phytase enzymes in poultry feed lead to decrease feed intake during excessive heat, characteristic of the summer months. Reduction of phytase reduces intake of calcium, phosphorus and trace minerals which are important in eggshell formation and resistance. Jones in 2012 reported that significant loss of phytase activity during steam conditioning and pelleting ...

mohammad aslam Appreciate your input. Note that coated slow released phytase has been incorporated in poultry diets by poultry integrator for sometime now. Our modern microencapsulation technology is such that it can trigger release up and down the GIT therefore making availability to birds as a non issue.
