PalmFat SL955

PalmFat SL955 is a lecithinised palm fat powder for monogastric animals made from fractionated palm fat combined with lecithin. It is free from trans fatty acids and rich in C-16 (Palmitic Acid).

Lecithin – a successful career for a valuable ingredient

  • Animal feed, foods, toiletries or medicinal preparations: lecithins play a valuable role in many areas of our daily life. 
  • Some 180,000 tons of these fat-like substances (lipoids) are produced every year, mainly from soybeans. They help to enhance and guarantee the quality of numerous products. 
  •  Lecithins play an important role in animal nutrition, too. Also classified as “secondary plant metabolites”, these substances are known to have a positive effect in the nutrition of pigs and poultry, and especially in fish farming. 
  • And there are indications that lecithin produces good results in cattle feeding, too.

Improving digestibility

  • In animal nutrition, lecithin are used as emulsifiers
  • They improve digestibility of the feed fats and fat-soluble  vitamins
  • Either 1) “crude” lecithin – directly from vegetable fat or 2) “deoiled lecithin” produced by means of extraction
  • Crude lecithin
    • 35-40% oil content​
    • Viscous consistency
  • Deoiled lecithin
    • High proportion of phospholipids (>95%) ​
    • Available in powder form

Chemical Background

  • Lecithin belong to the phospholipids with the group of substances important for metabolism
  • The latter include phosphoric acid, glycerol, choline, inositol and also unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acid. They have a characteristic structure with a hydrophilic or polar group and a hydrophobic or non-polar group.
  • This polar structure makes lecithins excellent emulsifiers which can be used for stabilizing both oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions.

Liquid or powder?

  • Deoiled lecithin is the most economical dosage form for feed.
  • Liquid crude lecithin is used mainly as a raw material for other lecithin powders on carriers.
  • These powders are made up on the basis of various carriers for different technical applications.
  • In this consistency they are easier to transport and dose. For technical reasons the phospholipid content in these lecithin powders on carriers is reduced to about one-third.

A diversity of effects

  • Effects of lecithin is either 1) physical-technical or 2) biochemical-physiological 
  • Physical-technical effects - emulsifier, dispersant, releasing agent and waterbinding capacity.
  • Physiological effects - metabolism of lipoproteins, phospholipids, triglycerides and cholesterol of various densities (HDL, LDL, VLDL) for the intermediate transportation of fats.
  • Therefore, when added to fattening feed for pigs, lecithin permits much better conversion of fat thus improve fattening performance.
  • In milk substitutes it facilitates the feeding of calves and piglets, and it produces good results in broiler fattening and fish farming.

Fats In Broiler Diet

  • Supplementation of fat has become a normal practice in increasing energy density of broiler’s diet owing to its high caloric value.
  • It also lowers dustiness and elevates fat soluble vitamins contents in the diet.
  • Quality of fat has a great contribution to get better poultry growth and feed efficiency.
  • Vegetable fats are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, better digested and absorbed than animal’s fat which are rich in saturated fatty acids.
  • Exclusion of fat from diet of growing chicks resulted in growth retardation due to deficiency in fatty acids.

PalmFat SL955

  • PalmFat SL955 is a palm oil derivative, activated with special lecithin fractions and available in powdered form.
  • It has high melting point, which reduces the chances of rancidity.
  • It can be mixed homogenously, thoroughly and easily in the feed during its preparation.

Dosage In Feeds

  • The optimal dose is dependent upon the feed formulation
  • Typical dosage in feeds are:
    • Layer and breeder hens: 1-3%
    • Broilers: 2-5%​
Palm fat powder
  • Store in a cool and dry place, in original unopened bags, without direct exposure to sunlight
  • Soft lumping may happen if it is stacked too high with many bags.
