Crude fibres have a positive impact on the animal welfare of breeding sows. The solubility and fermentability of the fibres are essential for this effect to take place. Insoluble and non-fermentable crude fibres such as our JELUVET® lignocellulose improve the sow’s well-being. But that’s not all! A field trial conducted in Brazil shows that our JELUVET® lignocellulose also has a positive influence on piglet breeding.
Lignocellulose and cellulose are used in pet food as dietary fibre - also referred to as crude fibre in animal feed. Both feed materials are neutral in taste. According to studies, the added dietary fibre in the food stimulates peristalsis, shortening the time it takes for the food to pass through the large intestine. Food rich in dietary fibre, therefore, prevents sluggish bowel movements and constipation. Both lignocellulose and cellulose bind water and give structure to the faeces, improving its consistency. Even animals with a tendency to soft, improperly formed stools can benefit from these dietary fibres. Do lignocellulose and cellulose, however, really have the same effects?
Before an edible oil lands on supermarket shelves, it runs through several process steps to achieve the desired quality. Undesirable components such as suspended solid particles, water and waxes are filtered out of the oil. This is done using filter aids in precoat filtration. With JELUCEL®, JELU-WERK offers a renewable filter aid that has ecological and economic advantages for edible oil filtration.
Bevor ein Speiseöl in den Supermarktregalen landet, durchläuft es diverse Prozessschritte, um die gewünschte Qualität zu erzielen. Unerwünschte Bestandteile wie Trubstoffe, Wasser und Wachse werden aus dem Öl herausgefiltert. Dabei kommen Filterhilfsmittel in der Anschwemmfiltration zum Einsatz. Mit JELUCEL® bietet das JELU-WERK ein nachwachsendes Filterhilfsmittel, das ökologische und ökonomische Vorteile für die Filtration von Speiseöl hat.
The substance flow balance of the new German Fertiliser Application Ordinance forces agricultural enterprises to set the phosphorus content of the feed accurately. Consequently, there is little room for variation in the phosphorus content. Different crude fibre sources can add different amounts of additional phosphorus to the ration. Lignocellulose, which is low in phosphorus, is especially suitable for use as a crude fibre component for a phosphorus-reduced feeding strategy.
Lignocellulose is a natural feed supplement which increases the crude fibre content of animal food. The crude fibre content of food is an important factor in pet health. Although the food formulation specifies how high the optimal content should be, studies show repeatedly that the crude fibre ration of animals is insufficient. Lignocellulose has a constant high crude fibre content. Therefore, our JELUVET® lignocellulose makes it possible to feed an optimal, standardised crude fibre portion.
