LYSOFORTE® is a lysophospholipid based nutritional emulsifier designed to enhance digestion and absorption of energy-rich feed ingredients, including fats, oils and fat-soluble nutrients in livestock and poultry feeds. By optimizing the three steps in fat digestion – emulsification, hydrolysis and absorption – LYSOFORTE provides producers a more consistent fat utilization response, enhanced nutrient absorption, improved animal performance and better feed cost control.
LYSOFORTE optimizes the use of fats and oils in the diet by supporting digestion and absorption. This allows you to either optimize efficiency in your current ration or support animal performance in a reduced energy, lower-cost diet.
The primary active ingredient in LYSOFORTE is lysolecithin. Lysolecithin is produced using an enzymatic process where soy lecithin is converted into lysophospholipids (LPLs).5 LPLs have increased hydrophilicity and are more fluid, which improves their capacity to support formation of oil-in-water emulsions. The LPLs in LYSOFORTE have unique physical and chemical properties which have been observed to enhance nutrient absorption and improve feed efficiency in multiple species.
LYSOFORTE features a three-step mode of action that supports the emulsification, hydrolysis and absorption of fats, oils and fat-soluble nutrients in feed. This helps maximize feed efficiency and provide feed cost control.

Efficient and easy to incorporate in a premix or complete feed, LYSOFORTE can be used either:
LYSOFORTE is sold in 25 kg bags.
