Alltech continues to be a trail-blazer in aqua research

In the July-August issue of IAF magazine our editor reports on his visit to Alltech’s latest International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium – these are held annually in Lexington, USA - where he was one of 12 presenters discussing the potential of aqua proteins in the human food chain and its likely future contribution. The papers delivered also included the nutritional contribution fish make to our diets in terms of mineral sources including the potential for contamination of foodstuffs through heavy metals. The regular topics of enzymes and amino acids in fish diets were included along with flavorings and nutritional strategies. Most interesting was a paper on organic Chromium and recirculation technologies. You can catch up with our editor’s thoughts in our July-August issue that has just been published and can be read at:
