Lecithin has an interactive application in the intestinal absorption of cholesterol, which helps improve the growth and survival of aquaculture species.
Some samples of application in aquaculture feed
- Improve survival rate of aquaculture species.
- Improves the growth rate of aquaculture species.
- Improves feed utilization efficiency.
- Source of bio-available phospholipids.
- Energy source.
- Reduce the leaching of water-soluble nutrients.
- Natural antioxidant.
Conditions of use
The Feed additive Soy Lecithin is intended to be used in feedingstuffs for all animal species with no minimum or maximum content. However, the applicant proposed use levels of 1,000–10,000 mg/kg complete feedingstuffs for all animal species. Only for shrimps, the highest proposed inclusion level corresponds to 20,000 mg/kg complete feed.
