NutriOpt: Nutrition by the Numbers

NutriOpt is one of the examples of applications solutions. NutriOpt combines 50+ years of expertise and innovation from Nutreco in the areas of feed efficiency and application solutions. The nutritional tool integrates knowledge across these fields in such a way that enables customers to optimize both feed costs and production results to maximize financial benefits in their value chain.  It consists of a number of key elements that complement and support each other in optimizing animal nutrition, performance, and associated costs through precise realā€time analysis, modelling and calculation.


Masterlab NIR

NIRS stands for Near Infra Red Spectroscopy. This technique is an alternative in analysing samples for chemical substances like proteins, liquids, fat, starch, cellulose, carbohydrate, glucose and ashes. Within several minutes the test results are complete which offers customers the possibility to alter their production process or swiftly release production batches for delivery. The costs of this analysis are relatively low. Fingerprinting is one of the new areas of NIR.

MasterLab has over 25 years of experience using NIRS. We develop and sell solid calibrations needed to work with NIRS. We can also take care of yearly maintenance and updates.

Besides the nutrition, animal performance is also largely influenced by animal husbandry. Trouw Nutrition specialists in topics like housing, climate, health and farm management are supporting our customers with achieving the best animal results. These senior specialists are bringing a wealth of experience collected all around the globe, when advising our customers in their markets, or supporting them on distance by answering their questions.



Optiline: More Fish With Less Feed

Metabolic activators are natural substances present in specific raw materials. When combined correctly, these substances positively impact the fish's physiology. More fat is stored in the edible parts of the fish rather than in those parts removed in the gutting process after slaughter.

Optiline Premium is the first feed to contain metabolic activators that stimulate the fish's metabolism and energy utilisation. The metabolic activators help reduce visceral fat and increase fillet fat content. The improved distribution of fat provides higher slaughter yields, with larger fillets and higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

Optimising Intestinal Health

Controlling intestinal health is of great importance for the well-being of an animal. In a challenging economic situation, with the need to reduce antibiotic usage, innovative solutions are required to control intestinal health in a sustainable way.

Stress plays a major role in disturbing the gut environment and setting up health challenges. A stable microbiota and a strong gut barrier are key in maintaining good health and preventing problems related to pathogens and toxins. The integrated approach is designed to raise profit by decreasing infection pressure and effectively helps to reduce antibiotics.
