New hydrolysed yeast provides a highly digestible alternative feed source which can increase performance

Lallemand Animal Nutrition launches Yela Prosecure to the animal nutrition market. This specifically designed hydrolysed yeast is higly digestible and contains functional nutrients that support animal performance, digestive care and feed palatability while contributing to the feed protein balance.

Yela Proscure is an innovative feed material (Regulation (EU) No 68/2013) that can be used in the diets of all animal species and organic production systems under regulation (EC) No 2018/848.

Mark McFarland, feed additive product manager at Lallemand Animal Nutrition, says the industry is seeing increasing pressure on the supply of feed materials. This is due to the global increase in animal production, competition between food and feed in terms of edible protein, supply chain challenges, price volatility, as well as increasing demand for more sustainable food.

“As a result, the development of new functional feed ingredients is a growing trend that can help address some of these concerns. And yeast-based ingredients are seen as promising solutions,” explains Mr McFarland.

“Yela Prosecure brings something new to the market as when it comes to the production of the product, a controlled hydrolysis process is applied, with the addition of specifically selected exogenous enzymes to the biomass. This ensures the product has high nutrient digestibility and functionality, offering a benefit to animal performance,” he explains.

Yela Prosecure is proven to increase animal performance​

Mr McFarland says a commercial trial result showed that piglets fed diets where soya bean meal was partially replaced with Yela Prosecure had a 17% increase in body weight at 18 days post-weaning. The results also indicated an improvement in average daily feed intake (ADFI) and average daily liveweight gain (DLWG). In addition, the feed conversion ratio (FCR) decreased by 15%.

Another trial looked at replacing fishmeal with Yela Proscure and again the results were positive. A 7% increase in body weight was seen at 21 days post-weaning and a signficant improvement in ADFI and DLWG was measured, as well as a 4% decrease in FCR. These positive effects were more pronouced for the smallest piglets, an important parameter to take into account for the homogeneity of the group.

“Yela Proscure is an innovative solution that can offer animal performance and economic benefits while contributing to the feed protein balance,” concludes Mr McFarland.
