ONE OF TH WAYS TO K FEED PRO AND YOUR SHEET CLE In times of worldwide population growth and increasing demand for food, the importance of feed hygiene and feed preservation cannot be overstated. If we want to meet the needs of a growing population, we have to produce more from less because losing food to feed contamination is not an option. In addition, the cost of grain, corn and other raw ingredients of feedstuffs is rising. As a result, compound feed has become an even more valuable agricultural product.

HE EASIEST KEEP YOUR ODUCTS R BALANCE EAN. spoilage, which ranges from a musty smell to visible mold and, probably toxin formation, is a typical consequence of the proliferation of microorganisms. Fungi and bacteria can endanger the quality of feed and harm not just animals and humans but can also have a negative effect on the food supply. In light of the global population growth over the next decades and the booming demand for safe and high-quality food, finding a solution to this problem is of the utmost importance. We at BASF know that high-quality feed and sustainable business go hand...

With organic acids from BASF, protecting the quality of your feed is safe and easy as these acids take their potency from nature’s realm. Propionic acid and formic acid, the liquid starting materials for our Luprosil® and Amasil® product lines, occur in plants, in silage and even in foods. As natural preservatives, these organic acids are completely metabolized. Using Luprosil® and Amasil®, we therefore combat the dangers of feed contamination and loss by perfecting what nature already has to offer. BASF has been working with Luprosil® propionic acid and Amasil® formic acid for decades in...

ORGANIC ACIDS FOR THE COMPOUND FEED INDUSTRY. In the compound feed industry, one has to meet the needs of various customers. Providing safe, high-quality and nutritious feed for various kinds of livestock is a huge responsibility that cannot be underestimated. In light of the global rise in the price of grain, corn and other raw ingredients of feedstuffs, compound feed has become an even more valuable agricultural product. It is vital, therefore, to effectively protect it against microorganisms so as to preserve its immense physiological and economic value. Only compound feed that is...

STRONG AND EFFECTIVE: PURE ACIDS AND THEIR MIXTURES. ACIDIFICATION/ PRESERVATION As a very effective and easy way of acidifying feed while eliminating salmonella and inhibiting molds, organic acids from BASF in their pure form enjoy considerable use in the compound feed industry. Propionic acid and formic acid, under the trade names Luprosil® and Amasil®, have already been in widespread use for feed preservation for decades. To provide you with the benefits of both, we developed their Lupro-Cid® and Lupro-Mix® mixtures, i.e., unbuffered products that combine the effects of propionic acid...

EFFECTIVE AND MORE GENTLE: BUFFERED ACIDS AND THEIR MIXTURES. As an easy-to-handle, user-friendly and at the same time highly effective alternative to pure acids, we have developed our buffered acids, also known as non-corrosive products. The process of buffering attenuates the biological activity so that acids go from being corrosive (caustic) to irritant (non-corrosive). As a result of constant product improvement, we can offer Lupro-Grain® and Amasil® NA, which in their active-substance content are very similar to the pure acids Luprosil® and Amasil® 85. As mixtures of both, Lupro-Cid®...

Preservation is one of the most important areas for the use of organic acids. Here, the acids prevent raw ingredients and finished feed from going moldy - a danger common to materials with a higher moisture content during storage. Compound feed can easily go moldy during storage in outdoor silos or bags due to the formation of condensation. This often leads to unwelcome claims for damages or compensation. A pioneer in the use of Luprosil® for preservation, BASF has considerable experience in the field of feedstuff conservation. To prevent feed from going moldy, we have developed Luprosil®...

FEED HYGIENE: A WEAPON AGAINST PATHOGENS. Apart from preservation, the elimination of bacteria and thus the control of diseases is essential for all manner of feedstuffs and within the human food chain. Even before the EU regulation EC 2160/2003 came into effect, farmers and feed manufacturers attempted to prevent salmonella and other pathogens from spoiling feedstuffs and endangering the lives of animals and humans. Feed can be infected by pathogens through the actual raw ingredients, but also in the course of processing. There is also a risk of it becoming contaminated with salmonella...

Due to limited gastric acid production, some animals such as young piglets are unable to digest feed properly - Important nutrients cannot find their way into the animal’s body. Acidification of piglet feed with Lupro-Cid® and Amasil®85 lowers the pH of the feed and reduces the buffer capacity. This enables the piglet, even with limited gastric acid production, to digest the feed in its stomach in an optimal manner and make full use of all nutrients. Thanks to the antimicrobial effect of the acid treatment, there is also a sustained reduction in microbe levels in compound feed. Since the...
