Definitions

• Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR): CAGR is the general projected growth rate of the industry from the base year to the end of the forecast period.
• Feed Additives: Products are added into animal feed to improve the quality and to enhance animal performance and health.
• Vitamins: Nutrients are required to keep an organism healthy. Vitamins are essential in feed because an animal´s organism cannot synthesize the necessary amount of vitamins to ensure health and performance.
• Amino Acids: Amino acids play a vital role in animal nutrition, helping in protein synthesis and aiding organic growth. In addition, amino acids promote muscle growth and improve feed efficiency.
• Enzymes: Enzymes are natural products that improve the digestibility of ingredients in animal feed, resulting in better feed-conversion rates.
• Mycotoxin Adsorbents: Adsorbents prevent diseases in animals caused by mycotoxins, which are substances naturally produced by molds and fungi that can contaminate animal feed. The adsorbents bind to mycotoxin, preventing animals from absorbing it as well as limiting adverse health effects.
• Prebiotics and Probiotics
- Prebiotics are natural fiber ingredients that keep the animal healthy by stimulating growth and keeping bacteria that promotes beneficial actions to the animal.
- Probiotics are living bacteria that keeps the animal’s colon healthy by protecting it from harmful bacteria and providing overall health benefits.
