LYSOFORTE™ - Your Solution for Enhanced Fat and Nutrient Absorption

LYSOFORTE™ is a biosurfactant derived from a natural source which enhances a more efficient utilization of lipids and other nutrients like glucose and amino acids. The changes the environment in the digestive tract in livestock and poultry to enhance better absorption of nutrients, including fat-soluble vitamins. LYSOFORTE can be used as either an additional ingredient to enhance absorption of added fat or to partially replace oil or fat being added to diets resulting in direct cost savings while still maintaining animal performance.


Return on Investment

Using LYSOFORTE™ Makes More "Cents" Digestion and absorption of feed ingredients are important for maintaining the profitability of livestock and poultry production. Feed is always a major investment and a place where extra attention to optimizing nutrient uptake is not only appreciated, but expected by your customers.

Domino Effect

Over the past few years, the cost of feed nutrients has been on the rise, especially fats and oils which can be attributed to the competition of animal nutrition with biofuels. Genetic evolution has also increased the animal's demand for energy and nutrients resulting in faster growth. The absorption of nutrients, including fatty acids, in livestock and poultry diets, is critical to improve body weight and feed conversion ratio. Improved fat absorption transforms energy, sparing effects that can be used to reformulate and reduce feed costs. 

Proven Solutions

Absorption of key nutrients is a critical step, especially as livestock and poultry eat many molecules they simply cannot digest. Utilizing Kemin products, such as enzymes and unique biosurfactants (specifically LYSOFORTE), can aid in animal nutrition by minimizing digestive stress and promoting the absorption and utilization of nutrients.

Get the Formula Right

Launched in March of 2014, the company’s Lipid Evaluation Test is a customer service tool to better assess the oxidative quality and nutritional value of oils and fats in feed. The service provides nutritionists with accurate lipid profiles containing the apparent metabolizable energy (AME) values and oxidative status and potential in order to improve applications and combat unwanted variations of oils and fats in animal nutrition.

Shared Goals

Profitability, through the utilization of nutrients, combined with animal health, is of great importance to animal producers throughout the world.  As your partner, we know you also have the added challenge of significant variability of feed fats and oils. This can influence feed variability and animal performance.

Reducing Variability

It is possible to alleviate the effect of fats and oils variability using a more precise AME evaluation, a precise analysis of lipids oxidative status and finally, increasing the digestibility and absorption rate of fats and oils by the addition of LYSOFORTE to the feed.

A biosurfactant derived from a natural source, such as LYSOFORTE Booster Dry, has the ability to reduce these differences and enhance the utilization of energy from oils and fats, therefore leading to improved feed conversion ratios and consequently, lower production costs.  

Lysoforte is used all over the world in animal diets to increase the absorption of oils, fats, and other nutrients and to improve performance and feed efficiency.

Effects on Digestion

  • Creates smaller emulsion particles
  • Lowers the critical micelle concentration
  • Supports the effect of bile salts during fat emulsification in the gut
  • Improves nutrient transport through the intestinal lumen
  • Improves the absorption of nutrients like lipids, amino acids, and glucose
  • Improves the absorption of fat soluble components like vitamins, carotenoids, and pigments
  • Is heat stable


  • Improved animal performance
  • Lower feed cost through more efficient use of nutrients
  • Contributes to animal health and welfare
  • More environmentally friendly animal production
  • Allows reformulating diets at a lower cost without compromising animal’s performance
