Soufflet enters feed ingredients market
A major actor in milling and malt production, the
French family-owned company Soufflet now enters the market of feed ingredients
as a new player.
Soufflet launches a new product called AVIMALT, obtained from a food
technology very similar to malt production and called solid state fermentation.
This technology allows wheat to produce endogenous metabolites that "improve"
wheat from the inside and allow a better access to nutrients. AVIMALT may be
used for every livestock species, especially monogastric ones.
AVIMALT is used in mash feed as well as in pelleted feed in the
label-segment. Avimalt is a powder and can be added to the feed before or after
pelleting. Because of the sugars from the malting process the product has a
sweet taste and a good palatability. Several very interesting zootechnical
trials have been carried out and showed a major interest in using AVIMALT.
More generally speaking, SOUFFLET has initiated a major R&D approach,
through a program called OSIRIS and worth a total of €77 million over a period
of eight years of which €31 million is granted by the French government. This
program explores the potentialities of the solid state fermentation technology
in several areas including animal feed and bioethanol production.

(juillet-août 2008) » and Feed Tech (octobre 2008).
