Over the last 60 years Nukamel has gained a lot of knowledge on the use of emulsifiers in calf milk replacers. From a technical point of view an optimized mixture and dosage of emulsifiers is needed to create a stable solution in which the fat particles are small and evenly distributed. In particular, in stock feeding this aspect is of importance. Other characteristics, like anti-foaming, improved wettability and dispersion are also taken into account when using emulsfiers in soluble calf milk replacers or their concentrates.
Moreover, from a nutritional point of view, again other emulsifiers are added to calf milk replacers. Nukamel has developed a nutritional emulsifier, Volamel Extra, which, due to its hydrophilic nature, instantly dissolves in the watery environment of the gut. That way, it works in synergy with the natural bile salts to improve fat digestion in young animals, like calves. Less diarrhea and a general improved health status and growth are being achieved.
