Kemin launches new products for Ruminant Essentialities portfolio
Kemin Industries has unveiled two new product ranges in its Ruminant Essentialities portfolio for proper animal nutrition and health.
These products are: KESSENT™, a product range of Kemin-developed rumen-protected methionine, a necessary amino acid in ruminant diets, which works with lysine (also a Kemin ingredient) for the best precision feeding; and CholiGEM™, a choline nutrition product.
Both products will be available on January 2020.
"Kemin pioneered the entire amino-acid-balancing concept. Today, we are reaching and perfecting the next level in ruminant nutrition through extensive services, solution offerings and technical expertise. Our goal is to continue expanding to answer the needs of our customers and deliver essential nutrients for their animals as efficiently and effectively as possible," said Stefaan Van Dyck, president of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health (Europe, Middle East, North Africa).
Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health (EMENA) debuted KESSENT and CholiGEM during an exclusive technical seminar in Athens, where Kemin introduced its Ruminant Essentialities product portfolio.
"Ruminant Essentialities by Kemin consists of two pillars: amino acid solutions, including the KESSENT Methionine range of solutions, LysiGEM™, LysiPEARL™ and MetiPEARL™; and solutions for improving animal health, including CholiGEM™, NutriCAB™, KemTRACE™ and TOXFIN®," said Van Dyck.
According to the latest nutritional models, ruminant diets must meet methionine and lysine needs. Therefore, nutritionists need a reliable source of both rumen-protected amino acids and the right technical knowledge for appropriate and profitable implementation.
"Kemin is the only global company that provides both rumen-protected amino acids methionine and lysine in a reliable way. We are proud to be leading our industry with KESSENT, designed for a new way of farming that is based on fully tested and sustainable solutions," said Diego Martinez del Olmo, product manager of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health (EMENA).
"Kemin's unique combination of special technical protection and ideal core technology, along with the right particle size and specific gravity, provides a high stability and homogeneity in a rumen-protected methionine. These key characteristics supply the highest amount of methionine available by the animal, as shown by the high rumen escape and high intestinal digestibility."
The new KESSENT range of methionine solutions will include the available products:
- KESSENT™ M - a source of metabolisable methionine with its unique encapsulation and core technology;
- KESSENT™ MF Liquid - a liquid, pellet-stable, rumen-protected methionine;
- KESSENT™ MF Dry - a dry, pellet-stable, rumen-protected methionine;
- KESSENT™ MF Arome Dry - a dry, pellet-stable, rumen-protected methionine with improved palatability and feed smell.
With KESSENT's launch in January 2020, Kemin will be the only provider of both methionine and lysine in a reliable way, the company said.
Kemin's Ruminant Essentialities portfolio offers a comprehensive set of amino acids for ruminant amino acid nutrition and health. Kemin's other debuted ingredient, CholiGEM, supports animal health improvement, making Ruminant Essentialities a full-range solution for livestock health and nutrition needs.
"Choline has received the most focus in ruminant health nutrition because of its contribution to better liver functioning during transition phase management and early lactation," said Deepak Dubey, product manager of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health (EMENA).
"In addition to higher production levels, choline's role in immunity, health and reproduction creates a strong argument for the essentiality of choline nutrition in sustainable and profitable dairy farming."
According to Kemin, its scientists have invested more than half a decade into designing a unique C3 model so that the next generation of encapsulated choline solution, CholiGEM, achieves the best results from choline supplementation.
The uniqueness of this model includes:
- Choline core: Kemin has developed its own choline core - a discovery that resulted in the right form, particle size and specific gravity in its new product, CholiGEM;
- Scientific coating: Kemin encapsulated the choline core with different levels of technical ingredients to improve the coating strength. Positive results were reported with a very high scientific balance of choline chloride in the encapsulation'
- Choline concentration: Today, most commercially available encapsulated choline chloride products contain a very low percentage of choline chloride. Kemin's choline core encapsulated with scientific coating resulted in double the choline chloride in CholiGEM and superior bioavailability.
This model provides high stability and homogeneity in rumen-protected choline. The key characteristics also supply the highest amount of choline available to the animal as a result of the high rumen escape and high intestinal digestibility, Kemin said.
The company's innovation has resulted in CholiGEM, which brings superior bioavailability with a highly concentrated source of encapsulated choline chloride.
CholiGEM and the KESSENT product range will be available in the EMENA market beginning January 2020.
