Chemical department




Our chemical department researches mainly feed and feed raw materials. Some of our basic analyses include the determination of dry weight, ash, protein and fat contents. In addition, we also carry out quality-determining analyses: amino acid determinations reveal the biological value of proteins, whereas TVN values indicate protein degradation. Analyses that describe the quality of fat include peroxide values and free fatty acids. When needed, our chemical department also carries out other feed analyses, such as pH, formic acid content and salt determinations.
