Sugar Syrup- A Dietary Energy Feed for Chicken Meat Production

Published: March 31, 2011
Summary

Moreover; it is used as fuel for the synthesis of meat or egg. Therefore 60-65 % of the metabolisible energy in the poultry ration is imputed to carbohydrate. Other nutrients are normally adjusted based on t...

Good article but cost would be the main obstacle to use sugar in feed specially in low energy and low density diets. It may be good replacement for oils but we need to have more research.

Dear Doctor,

Your case stucdy has really opened the new door for Poultry Nutritionist to think on optimum alternative energy source over traditional sources. We wish to conduct much more trials at different environmental conditions and at different inclusion levels.

Also we wish to know the cost of project and procedure to convert the mollasses into the good quality Sugar Syrup.

" Luck is the sense to recognize an opportunity and the ability to take advantage of it"

Thanks a lot !!!

Regards,

Dear All,
Many thanks for the appreciation on my article. The sugar syrup is the interim product while refining sugar which is not molasses. We have developed a special equipment to coat sugar syrup onto the feed materials before pelletting in feed plants. We used such feeds for the trial. The economics of it in comparison with corn and oil has been given in the article. Since sugar has no fibre, no toxin and cholesterol it could be the future dietary energy for poultry. I have worked out feasible way to convert molasses to sugar syrup too. Those intersted may contact me

Dear Dr.Nayak, Thanks for your interest. We are thinking to develop a product with soybean meal and sugar syrup with Sakthi group in South India. This would avoid the problems of incorporation in feeds. Send me your email so that I can give more details
