Today, decreased animal performance is often linked to inaccurate allocated dietary energy values and induced metabolic stress by oxidized lipids. In 2014, the Customer Laboratory Services team has designed an exclusive service called the Lipid Evaluation Test (LET). In total, 10 wet chemical tests are assessed focusing on both oxidative and nutritional characteristics in combination with energy diluting components. All these parameters are used to improve energy values delivered by the Wiseman for broilers and pigs.
Since its launch, more than 800 lipid samples have been analyzed in the LET test. It shows the large variation present between lipid sources. The compiled dataset helps to fully understand the huge variability in nutritional and oxidative quality of fats and oils.
The lipid evaluation test is a unique tool that provides insight in fat quality. It brings you direct benefits by increasing feed formulation precision using the true energy value of your lipid source. By supplementation of the appropriate antioxidant, the energy value of your feed is preserved and a safe reformulation is made possible introducing our absorption enhancer LYSOFORTE®. Moreover, with the use of LYSOFORTE and LET, the evaluation of alternative fat sources becomes possible leading to a reduction of feed costs while maintaining animal performance. As a result, the variability in animal performance can be reduced and the profitability is increased.
