Animal feed & Pet food
|Animal feed & Pet food|
|Additives and ingredients for the animal feed and petfood industries.|
|Due to the very long experience of the Puratos Group with the cereal industry, it seemed quite normal for Beldem to look beyond food applications for its ingredients used flour milling. Obviously, cereals are used for feed as well as food and raw materials like wheat, are not just important in the bakery sector but also in the animal feed sector, especially in Europe and other wheat-growing countries. Moreover, the quality of wheat in the animal feed sector is just as important as in many other food applications. The positive effects of ingredients like enzymes and emulsifiers can clearly be applied in both industries.
Therefore, a new business unit has been created in 2000 within Beldem, called the Feed Business Unit. It will operate as a sub-unit of the Food Ingredients Division, with its own marketing & technical staff, a specialized distribution network and ,of course, unique ingredients developed for this segment of the industry.
The major target for the Feed Business Unit is clearly the development of our feed enzymes under the name Belfeed. Our first enzyme preparation Belfeed is now approved for use in broilers, layers, turkeys, piglets and fattening pigs in the European Union. Belfeed products are also sold in other parts of the world, as additives in wheat and corn-based diets. A very ambitious programme of research is ongoing and will lead to other Belfeed enzymes for other species and types of raw materials.
Emulsifiers are also used in large volumes in applications such as calf milk replacers and many other feed uses exist, for stabilisation of pellets, fat digestibility improvement, etc. The wide range of Beldem food emulsifiers contains products suitable for the animal feed sector with high performance and competitive costs.
In pet food , yeast extracts are used to improve the taste of the product and its palatability.
A very promising addition to Beldem's range for the feed industry is our cooperation with a company producing probiotics for human health as well as animal nutrition. A range of probiotics is under development and the trend towards the total replacement of antibiotics as growth promoters in the animal feed sector will lead to an increase of synergetic formulations between enzymes and probiotics in the future. Our ability to produce both types of products will definitely give us a competitive edge in this market.
