Reference guide: An introduction to Fibre Analysis using NIR
A new reference guide which provides poultry and swine producers with an introduction to the benefits of moving from conventional fibre methods (i.e. crude fibre and NDF) to total dietary fibre analysis using Near Infrared Reflectance (NIR) technology.
The guide contains the results of non-starch polysaccharide (NSP) analysis of feedstuff samples from around the world and is being published in conjunction with the launch of a new NSP analysis feature within the AB Vista Feed Quality Service. The NSP analysis service gives nutritionists the ability to analyse the NSP content and its fractions (soluble and insoluble) within customers’ raw materials.
Technical Whitepaper: Peeling back the layers of fibre for animal performance
The whitepaper ‘Peeling Back the Layers of Fibre for Animal Performance’ discusses several misconceptions held in the industry about the complex topic of dietary fibre. The whitepaper also explores the potential of NSP (Non Starch Polysaccharides) analysis through NIR (Near Infrared) to bring new insights related to fibre composition, and outlines the tools available today for producers to extract value of the dietary fibre through the modulation of gut microbiome and better performance.
