Use Cabanin® CSD as a natural performance enhancer and as a vitamin E replacement. Cabanin® CSD is a premix of natural flavoring compounds with a high content of polyphenols with high antioxidant activity.
A trial conducted at Freie University Berlin, Germany, in 2017 confirms that Cabanin® CSD beneficial can replace 50 % of the vitamin E above the 15 ppm NRC standard requirements in feed for piglets and further support production results when the product is used with 1000 ppm as performance enhancer.
The purpose of the trial was to investigate the effects of Cabanin® CSD as partly vitamin E replacement and used in higher dosage as performance enhancer.
1) Kg feed per kg body weight gain; ab Means with different superscripts within the row differ significantly (P<0.05
Several trials indicate that at least 50 % of vitamin E content above 15 ppm can be replaced in feed for pigs and poultry.
Our general recommendation is a replacement with 2 kg Cabanin CSD per. kg of pure vitamin E (including a significant safety margin).
This means that 1 kg of Cabanin® CSD can replace 1 kg of vitamin E 50 % adsorbate.
Some fruits, berries and herbs have a high content of polyphenols that possess interesting properties in feed for animals. The selected polyphenols have the potential to partially replace vitamin E in animal feed.
Animals are often fed vitamin E far beyond the minimum standard to ensure a sufficient level of antioxidants to counteract oxidative stress. It is therefore possible to replace that part of the vitamin E content in the feed above the minimum standard and support the results positively.
The shortage in supply of vitamin E has caused an epic rise in the pricing. As of January 2018 the advantage of replacing vitamin E with Cabanin® CSD can reach up to 75 % in cost savings.
It is economically beneficial to replace part of the vitamin E in animals’ feeds by Cabanin® CSD. The cost-savings obtainable will be in the range of 30 – 40 % on the vitamin E that is replaced, calculation based on the prices to feed manufacturers of vitamin E 50 % adsorbate and Cabanin® CSD, respectively, as of October 2017.
Cabanin® CSD also optimises the antioxidant status in the body compared to standard dosage of vitamin E. It was tested by taking venous blood samples from piglets (table 2) for testing stress relevant parameters. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are present in all respiratory organisms, including in animals, and have important physiological functions, but are also involved as oxidative stress in various diseases. The balanced antioxidative status can be influenced negatively but also positively by influencing factors in the feed.
The results for the two biomarkers malondialdehyde (MDA) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) give a clear indication of the positive effect of Cabanin® CSD. MDA is one of the most prevalent byproducts of lipid peroxidation during oxidative stress, where lower values mean less stress and less fat oxidation. Superoxide is a very reactive form of oxygen and can damage proteins and the genome. The SOD is a proprietary protective enzyme to neutralize superoxide. A higher unit value (U / ml) means a potentially greater protective capacity.
