Animal Feed Encyclopedia - Inositol

Inositol is a white crystalline or crystalline powder, it is odorless, sweet in taste, and stable in the air; And it is easily soluble in water, insoluble in ether and chloroform. It has nine possible isomers in animals in general. Plant and microbial tissues. Classified as a member of the B-complex vitamin. It is an important source of nutrition for birds, aquatic animals, and mammals. It has a positive effect on the growth and development of animals - it can increase appetite, promote cell metabolism and growth and development. It is manufactured by the human body in quantities that are considered sufficient to maintain good health and is classified as one of the necessities.

Inositol is rich in fiber-rich foods such as corn, vegetables, oranges, apples, berries, and raisins. Whole grain oats, whole wheat bread, brown rice, walnuts, almonds, pecans, and sunflower seeds. However, inositol content is low, and the production cost is low and high.

At present, most inositol is manufactured by enzymatic synthesis of inositol, which can reduce the waste water generated in the production process by 90% and reduce energy consumption by 50% compared with traditional methods, which is feasible for large-scale production. And after inositol is extracted, the by-products can be used to achieve green cycle production.

Now the effect of inositol is generally reflected in the feed, so let's introduce the application and efficacy of inositol in various feeds

1. Application and efficacy of inositol in aquatic feed

The addition of inositol to aquafeeds can improve feed efficiency; It can play an anti-fatty liver and growth-promoting role in the biological metabolism of aquatic animals. It can improve the survival rate and growth rate of aquatic animals, avoid death, and increase body weight.

A. Adding inositol to aquatic feed can prevent skin lesions, skin surface bleeding and fin erosion in carpids, so as to avoid death due to lack of inositol.

B. Supplementation of inositol to aquafeeds increases the growth rate and rapid weight gain of hybrid aquatic animals such as tilapia, parrot, trevally, black snapper, sea bass, toothfish, spotted catfish, grass carp, salmon, eel and sharp-nosed perch.

C. Adding inositol to aquatic feed can improve the digestive function of aquatic animals and enhance immunity.

2. Application and efficacy of inositol in large livestock feed

A. Appropriate addition of inositol in feed can promote the appetite of dairy cows, regulate the metabolism of dairy cows, promote milk synthesis and secretion, and improve milk production;

B. Appropriate addition of inositol in feed can improve the digestion, absorption and utilization of nutrients in dairy cow feed, and increase nutrient absorption;

C. Proper addition of inositol in feed can increase the content of fat, protein and lactose in milk, thereby improving milk quality

3. Application and efficacy of inositol in economic animal feed

Since inositol has the effect of promoting hair growth, adding an appropriate amount of inositol to the feed of economic animals can make the hair of economic animals grow thicker and improve the quality of fur, thereby increasing the economic benefits of farmers.
