Lallemand Animal Nutrition launches a new solution: YANG
Feb 18, 2016
We are pleased to introduce our new solution for livestock producers and pet food application: YANG®, the yeast association new generation*. An innovation born of Lallemand research and the expertise of our various divisions — such as oenology, animal and human nutrition — YANG® is a synergistic alliance of specific strains of inactivated yeast.
YANG® is a concentrate of defenses supporting animals during stressful and challenging conditions such as weaning, feed transitions, and sanitary challenges. YANG® can be used in most feed production processes.
Not all the yeasts are equal!
The properties of yeast derivatives (products obtained from inactivated yeast cells) and their ability to :
- Adhere to specific bacteria and
- Modulate the immune system,
are well known in human and animal nutrition. A collaborative examination conducted with research institutes reinforced the fact that these properties are highly strain-dependent and linked to the yeast genome. Thanks to cutting-edge technologies applied for the first time in this area, Lallemand R&D teams have selected yeast strains (including Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Cyberlindnera jadinii) with different and complementary properties and combined them in a unique formula: YANG®.
Trials have been conducted in controlled facilities and in commercial farms showing beneficial effects in post-weaning piglets, calves, goats, shrimps and fish. Further trials are on-going in other animal species.
*Not all products are available in all markets nor all claims allowed in all regions.
