Nucleotides and bioactive peptides boost the functionalities of aquafeeds

The effects of bioactive peptides on growth, nutrient utilization, digestibility, intestinal health and meat quality of rainbow trout fed with high levels of vegetable protein, and the effects of dietary nucleotides in white shrimp affected AHPND

March 5, 2018

The beneficial effects of dietary nucleotides of yeast origin and bioactive peptides from porcine intestinal mucosa have been demonstrated in several studies in shrimp, salmon, tilapia, meager and sea bream among other species. Nonetheless, further research studies are still warranted.

Francisco González, Bioiberica will share with delegates at Aquafeed Horizons Asia how ongoing scientific studies from his company\'s R&D department are focused on evaluating the effects of bioactive peptides on growth, nutrient utilization, digestibility, intestinal health and meat quality of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) fed with high levels of vegetable protein, and the effects of dietary nucleotides in white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) affected by Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease (AHPND). New product developments should soon lead to specific formulations for other marine species of high commercial value, such as the sea cucumber.

The 11th Aquafeed Horizons Asia Conference will take place March 27, 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand alongside the feed and grain tradeshow, Victam Asia.
