Extrudates

Extrudates

     Extrusion is part of thermal treatment of feed that consists of pumping the feed through extruders under high pressure and at a high temperature (130-200°C). It consists of HTST (High temperature short time) which means it is quite friendly towards the treated feed.
     The most important benefits of extrusion include:

  • improved digestibility of individual components of feed to a level of 95% (improves animal productivity and improves the profitability of animal-based production)
  • improved feed palatability which means that animals eat it more eagerly
  • results in feed with excellent dietary properties
  • lowers the content of antinutritional compounds
  • elimination of unwanted microorganisms (microbiological purity of feed through high processin temperature – kills bacteria including salmonella, molds, fungi, viruses and spores)
  • extends feed storage time
