β-glucan containing feed

β-グルカン含有飼料 漁業飼料

β-glucan containing feed
β-Glucan activates macrophages, promotes secretion of many beneficial cytokines, and protects host animals and fish from infection by immune activation. Our feed β-glucan is a fermented, purified, spray-dried (1-3)- β-D-glucan from a strain of Agrobacterium species.

 

Results of adding 0.2% of BetaMax (b-glucan) to flatfish diet

Test animal : flatfish (Paralichyhus olivaceus) fry

  control BetaMax
Initial weight (g) 703 697
Final weight (g) 851 894
WG (%) 21.1 28.3
SGR (%) 0.32 0.42
PER 1.10 1.47
FE(%) 53.2 66.6
Crude protein (%) 19.4 20.0
Crude fat (%)   9.32    5.45
 ash (%)  3.41   3.14

* SGR(Specific growth rate) (%/d) : (loge final weight – loge initial weight)/ d
* PER(protein efficiency ratio) : (wet weight gain / protein intake)
* FE(feed efficiency)(%) : (wet weight gain / dry feed intake) × 100

 

flatfish blood test results

  diets
control BetaMax
Hemoglobin (g/dL) 10.6 13.4
Hematocrit (%) 18.7 22.0
RBC ( ×106 cell/ul)  2.97  3.30
Serum GOT (IU/L) 18.2 15.0
Serum GPT (IU/L)  7.4  6.0
Osmolality (mOsm/kg) 462 400

Results

Improvement of liver function (higher Hematocrit and low GOTlevel)

  • It shows a higher stress at control group.
  • BetaMax group shows relief from the stress.

Efficacy of BetaMax

  • Increase of feed intake, growth and feed efficiency – economic advantage
  • Increase of non-specific immune reaction – decrease in antibiotic use
  • Improvement of meat texture – protein accumulation and fat reduction
  • Reduction of stress and enhancement of bioactivity – lower GOT level
