Young Animal Feed

OVOLIN YOUNG ANIMAL FEED’S UNIQUE BENEFITS

Give rise to new life. That is what OVOLIN YOUNG ANIMAL FEED stands for. OVOLIN YOUNG ANIMAL FEED guarantees you: HIGHEST PROTEIN
EFFICIENCY, BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS, VALUABLE LIPIDS, CHOLESTEROL and PHOSPHATIDYLCHOLINE

Vitamins

OVOLIN products are an excellent source of vitamins especially fatsoluble vitamins, which are stable throughout the gentle drying process. Vitamin A is particular rich in the yolk fraction, which can contribute to the relative high demand in poultry and piglet feeds. Moreover, OVOLIN products contains several B-vitamins as well especially vitamin B5, B9 and B12 being present in the yolk.

HIGHEST PROTEIN EFFICIENCY

In comparison with several animal and vegetable protein sources commonly used in animal feeds egg protein in OVOLIN products have the highest protein efficiency ratio over other animal and vegetable protein sources. OVOLIN products serves to fortify an already balanced amino acid blend (besides the presence of taurine), increasing bioavailability of these
essential nutrients.

BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS

OVOLIN products contain several unique bioactive compounds. These
health promoting components are there protecting the chicken embryo
against pathogens. Most essential bioactive compounds are the immunoglobulin IgY, phospholipids (especially Phosphatidylcholine),
the glycoprotein Ovotransferrin, the antibacterial enzyme lysozyme and
antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin.

CHOLESTEROL

Cholesterol is an essential nutrient for young mammals. Sow milk and
cow milk contain substantial amounts of cholesterol. In situations that
mother milk is not (enough) available, addition of cholesterol in the feed
is recommended. Cholesterol, an important component in cell
membranes, is required for the growth of infants and is a precursor of
bile acids, sex hormones, and cortex hormones. The supplementation in
infant formulas with egg yolk lipids has been suggested to more closely
resemble mother’s milk, and it has been found that while providing
essential nutrients, the yolk lipids did not result in an increase in plasma
cholesterol, indicating that it could safely be included in the infant diet.
