EASY BIO presents Lipidol potentials at Vietnam aquafeed forum
EASY BIO presented at the 9th Regional Aquafeed Forum (RAF9) held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on September 28-30.
RAF9 is an annual meeting on aquaculture nutrition held in Southeast Asia and hosts around 150 aquaculture experts yearly.
The company presented on the topic of "Effects of dietary supplementation of lysophospholipids on growth performance and feed utilization in shrimp" to an audience of over 60 aquaculture experts.
"Every animal has LPLs (lysophospholipids) in their biological membranes in small quantity. Dietary supplementation of LPLs can significantly improve nutrients absorption," said Daniel Choi, technical sales manager of EASY BIO.
Choi touched on the safety and benefits of Lipidol and the potential opportunities for its development in shrimp and fish.
Significant findings from a study in Ecuador showed the effects of Lipidol supplementation on the growth performance of shrimp.
In addition, the study indicated that with Lipidol supplementation, the pellet was able to retain its proper hardness and density, a factor that is critical in aqua feed. These results indicate that there is a great potential for further application of Lipidol in aqua feed.
Based on the findings of the experiment, EASY BIO is currently conducting fish and shrimp trials at Nong Lam University, Vietnam.
"With the support of EASY BIO, we are able to deliver the important benefits of Lipidol with great effectiveness to Southeast Asian markets. We hope that through our collaborative efforts, even more customers will have access to, and produce great outcomes with Lipidol," a statement by Bayer Vietnam said.
"We are very appreciative of Bayer Vietnam and their efforts to create more opportunities to communicate with our customers directly. We look forward to growing together," Choi commented.
