Kemin Launches LYSOFORTE® EXTEND at European Symposium on Poultry Nutrition (ESPN)

Next-generation lipid nutrition solution helps control feed costs and improve profitability

Tarragona, Spain (May 10, 2017) – Kemin Industries, a global nutritional ingredient company that uses science to create solutions and products that touch half the world’s population, has launched its next-generation lipid nutrition solution, LYSOFORTE® EXTEND. By providing a complete mode of action for fat and nutrient digestion in animals, the product helps animal producers control feed costs and improve profitability.

“Managing feed costs is a major factor of success for animal protein production,” said KP Philip, President of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health. “The development of LYSOFORTE EXTEND assists animal protein producers around the globe run efficient and profitable operations.”

Intensive lab demonstrations showed LYSOFORTE EXTEND’s complete mode of action for lipid digestion and absorption. When animals ingest feed containing LYSOFORTE EXTEND, the combination of natural lysophospholipids, synthetic emulsifiers and monoglycerides improve emulsification and hydrolysis, which provides more nutrients for absorption.

“Beyond lab research, we conducted animal research to see how the molecular benefits of LYSOFORTE EXTEND impact animals,” said Dr. Monika Bieber, Lead Global Platform Manager of Kemin. “Our studies showed improvements in feed efficiencies and performance, both leading to a higher profit for the customers.”

For the past two decades, the Kemin LYSOFORTE brand has set an industry standard for absorption enhancers worldwide. The new LYSOFORTE EXTEND builds upon the key science and benefits of the LYSOFORTE brand to address the evolving nutrition concerns of animal producers.

“This product fits perfectly into our lipid nutrition portfolio, which includes LYSOFORTE® Liquid, as well as lab services, Lipid Evaluation Testing, liquid application support and expert formulation advice,” said Karl de Bruyne, Sales and Marketing Director of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health.

LYSOFORTE EXTEND is first available in Europe; registration processes have been initiated globally.
