There is currently a ban in the EU on feeding land animal proteins to livestock, while land animal fats are often added to the diets of pigs and chicken. Outside the EU, various land animal proteins are traditionally used as an easily digestible protein source for livestock feed. Recent studies have again demonstrated the nutritional value of animal by-products in such production systems. These by-products offer a sustainable solution for feed, often even more sustainable than plant ingredients. The proteins are highly digestible, a natural source of phosphorous and free from antinutritional factors and other nutritional challenges. They are thus the perfect complement to feed formulations or can even replace plant sources such as soybean meal.
Our European animal by-products are safe, traceable and offer a true circular economy solution. We supply a wide range of products: proteins as building blocks and an energy source, plus supplements and special ingredients such as hydrolysates for piglets and nucleotides.
