Rapeseed meal has a large amount of anti-nutrients in its composition, therefore, it is considered problematic in feeding farm animals, especially for piglets and young poultry.
The anti-nutrient factors of rapeseed meal include:
Our unique technology of rapeseed meal fermentation with lactic acid bacteria biotransforms its ingredients resulting into:
Through biotransformation lactic acid bacteria destroy protease inhibitors and convert them into non-active molecules.
Chemical bonds in the molecules of glucosinolates are degraded, converting them into substances with an apparent bactericidal effect (acting against gram-negative (“G-“) bacteria) and fungicidal action;
The innovative fermentation technology we use can destroy phytonic complexes in the rapeseed meal molecule and release nutrients and phosphorus from phytates, resulting in increased digestibility (the digestibility of phosphorus increases by 2.4 times !!!)
Tannins are destroyed through biotransformation in the fermentation process.
The product is featured by crude fiber subject to hydrolysis, during fermentation with lactic acid bacteria. In this case, crude fiber has a good ratio of fractions that help beneficial bacteria grow and multiply in the colon. Scientific research has proved that due to the presence of hydrolyzed crude fiber, the amount of beneficial microflora in the colon of piglets and broiler chickens increases by 3 times!!!
Due to the vital activities of lactic acid bacteria in rapeseed meal, biotransformation reactions occur, resulting in significant advantages over conventional ones:
The number of phytate, protease inhibitors, glucosinolates, tannins is significantly reduced.
Digestibility of proteins in EP100 rises to min 86% (compared to regular rapeseed meal with the average protein digestibility rate of 72%)
Digestibility of phosphorus from EP100 increases to min 67%, that is, 2.4 times more!!! (compared to regular rapeseed meal with the average phosphorus digestibility rate of 27%)
Bactericidal and fungicidal action is caused by metabolites formed during biotransformation of glucosinolates with lactic acid bacteria. It has been already proven that the number of such metabolites exceeds 20.
Due to changes in composition, fermented rapeseed meal can be used:
Our experiments showed the possibility of reducing the use of antibiotics in pig breeding by 10 times. With the use of EP100 in broiler diets, it is possible to completely abandon the use of antibiotics.
Laboratory studies have shown that metabolites resulting from the destruction of bacteria glucosinolates, including HDMPP, have a bactericidal action on Salmonella spp.Specification-EP100.pdf
