Make your Fat work !
Vegetable oils and animal fats are usually added to poultry diets to increase dietary energy concentrations. The efficient utilization of dietary fat requires digestion and absorption of fat in the gastrointestinal tract.
Ingested lipids undergo intestinal emulsification, digestion, micellar solubilisation, cell membrane permeation, intracellular esterification and incorporation into lipoproteins before release to the interstitial fluid.
Fat digestion takes place in an aqueous environment, however fat is not water soluble. Bile salts from the gall bladder emulsify this fat with water. Studies in poultry have indicated that fat digestion is low at early ages. In young birds the limiting factor is bile salt secretion, which causes reduced ability to digest fats.
This has led to considerable interest in the use of phospholipids as a means of enhancing the utilisation of fats in birds.
Fat-Boost* is a novel formulation of enzymatically modified lecithins like Phosphatidyl choline, Phosphotidyl Inositol, Phosphotidyl ethnolamine & Phosphotidic acid. Fat-Boost* provides superior emulsification properties, lowers the critical micelle concentration (CMC) & ensures higher absorption of fat. This results in a substantial enhancement of energy & fat digestibility.
In addition, Fat-Boost* also provides an opportunity to manage feed cost, as expensive fat can be partially substituted in poultry diets.
