Opticare Ferment S: high quality fermented soy protein for piglets

Zarkos-Smith Associates introduces Opticare Ferment S: a high quality fermented soy protein for young piglets.

Opticare Ferment S is a cheap alternative to expensive animal protein sources such as milk powder, whey powder, fish meal and blood plasma. Since lactic acid bacteria are added to the fermentation process of soy, Opticare Ferment S contains a lot of lactic acid. This enhances the flavor and acts as antimicrobial. The present lactic acid bacteria act as probiotics.

Improved digestibility and intake
The fermentation process and the addition of lactic acid bacteria improve the digestibility and intake of piglet feed respectively. The anti-nutritional factors, which are normal present in soy, are converted in positive components by the production process.

Replacement of animal protein
Opticare Ferment S can be best used in piglet feed as replacer for animal protein sources. The product has a dry matter content of 89,5 percent and contains per kg dry matter 505g crude protein, 22g fat and 45g starch.
