LuctaromÂ® Convert to increase fat digestibility in poultry
Lucta S.A. reports that LuctaromÂ® Convert increases fat digestibility in
poultry diets. This is demonstrated by results showing increased activity of
digestive enzymes in broilers fed this phytogenic product.
In digestibility trials conducted at IRTA (Spain), the feeding of LuctaromÂ®
Convert at 500 ppm improved soya bean oil digestibility by 3% and lard
digestibility by 7% in 21-day old broilers. It was discovered that the product
made lard as digestible as soya bean oil in young birds, thereby providing a
novel alternative for poultry feed formulation.
LuctaromÂ® Convert is a spice blend with performance enhancing properties.
Results from numerous field trials show that it improved growth and FCR on
average by 2%, says that company. It is also reported that Lucta S.A. can
provide evidence that supports the main mode of action ascribed to this novel
ingredient for poultry production.
