Brewers‘yeast the decisive added value for any animal feed

 To judge the biological value of an animal feed, we should not limit ourselves to the parameters “Energy”, “Protein”, “Amino Acids” and “Vitamins” alone. What is crucial for the absorption and conversion of the individual nutrients and active ingredients in the feed, and thus also for animal performance, is the bioavailability of these ingredients.

Brewers’ Yeast is one of the most valuable natural products. It serves as a carrier of both active ingredients and nutrients. The effect of the many ingredients such as enzymes, B-vitamins, amino acids and minerals depends on the interaction of all the ingredients in their natural chemical combination. It is only this unique combination of active ingredients, bioavailability and the morphology of the yeast cell which allow the various synergetic effects the multibiotic power®.

Additionally only brewers’ yeast products contain α- and β-acids also known as “Humulones” and “Lupulones” coming from the hops, added with the yeast in the beer brewing process. The main values of those α- and β-acids are their capacity to develop calming, antioxidant, astringent and bacteriostatic effects.

The company Leiber in Europe the leading company for processing high valued brewing by-products have developed various special products made of brewers’ yeast for special requirements. For these products, certain components are released and isolated from the cell and cell walls in a complex process of autolysis.

Because of their high concentration of 1,3-1,6-β-D-glucan molecules, mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) or RNA components (Nucleotides, nucleosides), the Leiber brewers’ yeast special products can bind and inactivate undesirable substances (such as mycotoxins) and pathogens (e.g. Salmonella, E.coli).

They sustainably boost and stimulate the animals’ own defences. The result is a stronger immune system and greater resilience.

  1. how many percent of protein content in the feed product to be given to fish

    1. It really depends on the type of fish and (I would imagine) the protein source

  2. nice blog !! i was looking for blogs related of animal feed prices . then i found this blog, this is really nice and interested to read. thanks to author for sharing this type of information.
