What kinds of sweetener is best used in animal feed?

What is a sweetener? What kind of sweetener is a favorite sweet source for animals? With these issues we explore and study.

1. What are the main ingredients of sweeteners?

First, the list of feed additives can be used as the main sweet sources: sodium saccharin, calcium saccharin, sumarin, NHDC, maltodextrin, sucrose, glucose, sorbitol, and the like. Second, most sweetener manufacturers will use sweet sources for foods in feed sweeteners, such as: neotame, cyclamate, acesulfame K, sucralose and so on.

2. Why is sodium saccharin as the main sweet source?

Animals have different eating habits. We often use human will instead of animal habits. Some studies have shown that people’s perceptions of sweet sources are quite different from those of pigs. For example, aspartame is equivalent to 150 times sucrose to humans but not to pigs; cyclamate is equivalent to 17.6 times sucrose to humans, but not to pigs; Is sweet-to-human equivalent to 6000-8000 times sucrose, but is there a pig? There is currently no authoritative conclusion. Does human perception of sweeteners substitute for animals? It cannot be completely replaced. The graphic shows that it is swe

et at many food grades. In the source, pigs have a higher degree of sensibility to saccharin and the cost of the addition is low. So far, saccharin sodium has been recognized as an effective and sweet source that is cost-effective. Therefore, sweeteners that are still used as main constituents of saccharin sodium are used in various large feed companies.

3. What is the role of neo sweets in animal action?

At present, the main sweet source of sweeteners that do not contain sodium saccharin but have high sweetness is neotame. After Newt’s protection period expired, Newcastle’s price further declined, making Newcastle a sweeter source of cost-effectiveness in food applications. However, due to the high neo- sweetness, the amount of addition is too small, and the dispersion in the feed is poor; the water-solubility is very poor and belongs to the post-sweet type. Animals cannot perceive sweetness for the first time; they have not been effective in animals. The exact evidence is that there is a large number of animal-based experiments and there is still a long way to go before using Newcastle.

4. What is the role of adding feed sweeteners?

There are two issues we need to pay attention to, one is to improve palatability. The use of raw materials and varieties of compound feeds, coupled with the use of drug additives, resulting in poor feed palatability, so the main role of adding feed sweeteners is to improve feed palatability; second is to continue to promote feed intake. The ultimate purpose of using sweeteners is to promote the animal’s continuous hunger, thereby increasing the total feed intake and improving the performance of animal production. However, in some markets, the so-called high sweetness, people’s perception is indeed good, high sweetness, low prices, but ultimately the animal’s feed intake did not increase, but also decreased. One of my customers used this type of sweetener, pig × sweet, and confirmed that the feed intake of pigs was reduced. The principle of the action of some sweet sources on animals is not yet clear. In particular, products that use only post-sweet type and high sweetness cause the taste of the animals to malfunction. This type of conceptual product requires caution when used by everyone.

5. Is there a major innovation in sweetener technology?

The first is to find no new breakthroughs in major sources of sweetness. Due to environmental factors, the price of sodium saccharin increased slightly, and the profit space for sweetener manufacturers was compressed. Therefore, sweetener manufacturers are also actively looking for sweet sources that are more cost-effective.

The second is technological innovation. Spray drying technology has been widely recognized, but is there a more simple and practical process? Further research and innovation are needed.

The third is that the detection technology has matured. The extensive use of liquid-phase and gas-phase mass spectrometry techniques has made it possible to detect various types of complex sweeteners and lay the foundation for bidding for large companies.
