LYSOFORTE® - A Unique Biosurfactant

LYSOFORTE® is a unique biosurfactant that optimizes the environment in the digestive tract to enhance better absorption of nutrients, including fat-soluble vitamins.

Better Absorption

Extensive lab and animal research conducted by Kemin has resulted in the development of LYSOFORTE.  Lab trials demonstrate LYSOFORTE can produce droplets up to four times smaller than regular lethicin. 

Unique Performance

When animals ingest feed containing LYSOFORTE, the biosurfactant molecules emulsify fats. Smaller fat droplets emulsify with bile salts in the intestine resulting in greater surface area; therefore, increasing the likelihood of contact between lipases and fat molecules. LYSOFORTE has a significant capacity to form smaller and more stable micelles which allow the fatty acids to be better absorbed by the intestinal cells. 



A patented enzyme activity interaction

Enzyme Effector™ aids enzyme activity, maximizing nutrient digestion

A highly effective emulsifier

Allows the opportunity for feedstuffs to be utilized

Natural absorption enhancer

Aids in nutrient digestion for young animals

Contains lysophospholipds

Superior emulsification properties create smaller particles

Available in dry, heat stable form

Enables inclusion in all formulas












LYSOFORTE first improves the emulsification of fat droplets so that the digestion of lipases becomes more efficient.  Lastly, LYSOFORTE stabilizes the micelles and enhances the absorption of fats and oils through the gut wall.
