AB Vista has published a whitepaper called ‘Peeling Back the Layers of Fibre for Animal Performance’. The whitepaper on dietary fibre explores the potential of NSP (Non Starch Polysaccharides) analysis through NIR (Near Infrared).
NSP analyses using NIR can bring new insights related to dietary fibre composition, according to AB Vista. ‘Peeling Back the Layers of Fibre for Animal Performance’ considers the different dietary fibre parameters analysed in the introductory guide explaining what the composition and the variation of the different parameters could potentially mean for producers.
The new whitepaper follows the release of ‘An Introduction to Fibre Analysis Using NIR’ in July, which provides NSP values for raw materials and cereals, highlighting the variations.
AB Vista’s Global Technical Support Manager, Xavière Rousseau says: “With the cost of soybean meal increasing, a rising pressure to use more local ingredients and a desire to improve gut function we anticipate the level of interest in the fibre fraction is likely to increase. With this in mind, it’s important to develop our knowledge of this topic.”
According to Rousseau there is still much to learn and research in the area of dietary fibre. “Through our work with the International Fibre Summit, our NSP analysis service, and product Signis we are well positioned to help customers gain a deeper understanding of how best to extract the hidden value within fibre to improve productivity.”
