Carotenoids — Quality Egg Nutrition Solution
For more than 20 years, Kemin has collaborated with egg producers in creating carotenoid products for optimum egg yolk quality and nutrition. These goals and relationships help bring billions of quality eggs to consumers every year. Humans and animals usually cannot synthesize carotenoids, which is why it's important to supplement carotenoids within the diet.
Through extensive research and trial studies, Kemin has shown lutein, a carotenoid nutrient, and xanthophyll are not only efficient in promoting consistent egg pigmentation, but may play an important role in development and physiological functions such as antioxidant activities, regulation of cell proliferation and enhancement of immune function. These all translate to better eye care, skin hydration, cognition, eye health in babies and most recently, carotenoids have been found to help fight against the harmful effects of blue light at all ages.1
ButiPEARL™ is an encapsulated source of calcium butyrate for animal diets. The MicroPEARLS™ encapsulation technology is unique and allows superior handling, avoids lumps at the feed mill, no bad odor, and permits a sustained release of the active ingredient in the intestinal tract, resulting in a very profitable application.
Bioavailability Using Rumen Protection
Superior milk production requires more than average protein sources, especially if producers want to boost production. To meet demands, research shows dairy cows perform best with an efficient total mixed ration (TMR) diet containing rumen protected lysine and methionine because they provide higher levels of bioavailable amino acids to the cow. Kemin has developed rumen protected lysine, methionine and choline products like LysiPEARL™, MetiPEARL™ and CholiPEARL™ to support these goals and keep dairy cows healthy and productive.
