Giving piglets the best start in life
Agro Korn believe passionately that solving the global protein challenge means we need to look at many different solutions, tailoring products to specific animal and life-stage needs.
AlphaSoy, our flagship brand, is an alternative protein source that has been carefully engineered to unlock the natural functional properties of soya, improving the value it delivers to young animals, giving them more nutrition and more value from a single ingredient.
ALPHASOY IS THE NO 1 PROCESSED SOYA FOR PIGLETS
AlphaSoy is a new generation functional protein designed to drive piglet health and performance in antibiotic free systems. Our gentle enzymatic thermomechanical process alters the fibre structure of the SBM making it more healthy, the process also increases the amino acid digestibility by around 5%.
The process also positively alters the energy profile so that we reduce the % of less healthy fermentable carbohydrates and increase the % of more beneficial digestible carbohydrates, the end result is a product which is up to 18% higher in total energy than certain other processed soya’s.
In our collective studies we discovered:
➕ High protein content in an SPC does not resulting in better performance
➕ Long-held belief that ANF’s are ALL BAD may not be entirely true, recent studies into the role of SB Oligosaccharides suggest they may act as a Prebiotic.
➕ Fibre structure of SBM can be altered during processing to improve its functionality
➕ Fermentable carbohydrates in SBM can have a detrimental effect on piglet gut health if not managed.
➕ A combination of enzymatic and gentle thermos mechanical treatment of soy seems to produce the best quality protein for piglets.
As a result of our findings we’ve been able to design the perfect piglet feed for antibiotic free systems.
