Nutraferma has launched UltraPro+, a high- quality functional protein ingredient for piglet diets. Rich in balanced peptides from animal proteins and fermented soy.
In two separate university trials, piglets fed diets containing UltraPro+ had significantly improved average daily gain and feed efficiency compared to piglets fed the other test ingredients.
The European Former Foodstuff Processors Association (EFFPA) has been set up with the aim of promoting the use of food left over from the manufacturing process to make feed for animals.
Many former foodstuffs, including biscuits, crisps and confectionery can be converted into high quality ingredients for use in animal feed, avoiding waste from food that is not destined for human consumption.
