In recent years, China's functional sugar industry has developed rapidly, due to the unique nutrition and health effects of functional sugar.It can regulate intestinal flora, improve lipid metabolism, improve body immunity and anti-caries properties.Now it has developed into an important and important industry in the food, medicine and animal nutrition industries. The market scale is getting bigger and bigger, and some products have reached the international advanced level.
In the animal feed industry, on the one hand, as the national economy continues to rise, people pay more attention to pets, and pet feeds are redefined.“Natural”, “low fat” and “low sugar health” have become the main labels.It can also be seen that healthy food is not only important to human beings, but also essential to the pet feed industry.Functional sugar alcohols are widely used in pet foods, health products and medical products due to their health and natural characteristics.On the other hand, the long-term use of antibiotics has brought serious consequences to the livestock and poultry industry, such as drug residues, drug resistance and the decline in the quality of livestock products.Not only has a serious impact on the environment, but even poses a threat to human health through the food chain.Therefore, functional sugar products which can improve immunity and which do not cause drug resistance are gradually applied to livestock feed.
For example, after xylitol enters the intestinal tract of the animal, the beneficial bacteria get a large amount of proliferation as nutrients.It can also stimulate the peristalsis of the intestines, has a good laxative effect, and can be used as a new micro-ecological agent.Secondly, there are many characteristics such as not raising blood sugar, preventing diabetes, and low calorie value.In addition, D-Xylose has a unique aroma and low calorie, which is favored by the pet industry. As a pet food raw material, pets can not be stinky.Often added to pet cans, pet feed, pet snacks, vitamin feed, aquatic feed, veterinary drugs.In general, functional sugar alcohol products have the following effects and characteristics in the animal nutrition industry:
1、Promote the proliferation of beneficial bacteria in the intestine, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, and improve the balance of micro-ecological environment.
2、Prevent blood sugar from rising and prevent the development of diabetes in animals.
3、Promote intestinal peristalsis, relieve constipation and reduce intestinal toxins.
4、Promote digestion and absorption, improve feed utilization, and improve animal performance.
5、Reduce the concentration of ammonia nitrogen and sulfur in the feces, purify the air, reduce respiratory diseases and pathogen infection.
6、Improve immunity and reduce the use of antibiotics.
In short, the emergence of functional sugar alcohol has brought new development opportunities to the animal nutrition industry, and its application prospects are worth looking forward to.
