During the production of cellulose and starch products, waste inevitably remains, which is a real problem for disposal.
Manufacturers are trying to minimize the harm to the environment from the generation of these wastes, as well as to get the maximum amount of profit from the operation of the equipment, and therefore even the residues in these industries are trying to use for the production of useful compounds. This is how feed yeast is obtained – a special biomass created on the basis of substrates of plant and industrial, chemical, genesis. To obtain fodder yeast, it is possible to use waste not only from cellulose and starch production, but also oil fractions, which minimizes the harm from the residues of these types of industries for the environment. Fodder yeast can be used as food for animals both in pure form and as part of compound feed. Typically, they are used to feed cattle, calves, pigs, sheep and poultry.
100 units of this feed consist of 8.5 kg of protein, 60 g of carbohydrates and 5 kg of fat, which helps farm animals to gain weight faster with minimal food costs. That is why farmers from all over the world are interested in wholesale supplies of feed yeast.
What is needed to import and export feed yeast to the EU
First of all, you should provide certificates for products of various origins. It is worth remembering that there are several types of feed yeast at once:
– hydrolytic are necessary to obtain yeast from wood. Such yeast begins to work only at high temperatures and in the presence of special acids, converting fiber into carbohydrates.
– fodder yeast is obtained from sulfite-alcohol stillage in the classical way
– protein-vitamin obtained after processing methanol or natural gas
For each type of this product, manufacturers must have separate documents confirming the method of obtaining yeast and its purity, as well as suitability for use on feed.
Features of import and export of feed yeast
Producers need to remember that feed yeast was used more often in the USSR in the middle of the 20th century – it was then that feed yeast experienced its popularity as food for poultry and animals. However, in the current environment, taking into account the trend towards environmental friendliness, such products are less popular, especially in the EU countries, where new “natural” standards are strictly adhered to. Studies of this product indicate that it does not have the best effect on animal health, and therefore farmers are now less active in including it in their feed. This can make it difficult for Ukrainian producers to work with EU countries.
