Application of betaine in poultry feed

At present, betaine has been widely used in broiler production, which can replace part of DL methionine and choline, promote fat metabolism and reduce feed costs. Scientific research shows that when betaine replaces the methyl donor in poultry diets, it can significantly improve the performance of broiler chickens, and can improve the ability of poultry to resist heat stress and improve the carcass characteristics of poultry meat.

Most existing studies have shown that the molecular structure of betaine hydrochloride extracted from beet tubers after passing through the stomach of animals is basically similar to anhydrous betaine, and is considered to be one of the most effective osmotic regulators. Betaine hydrochloride extracted from beet roots has the advantages of not being easy to absorb moisture, strong stability, and good fluidity.

Practice has proved that when poultry is under heat stress, adding betaine hydrochloride as an osmotic regulator to the diet can achieve the expected anti-heat stress effect. When sugar beet is used for sugar production, the cost of processing the material extracted from it into betaine hydrochloride is lower, usually lower than that of anhydrous betaine. Adding to the feed of broilers can maintain the intestinal function of broilers and ensure the efficacy of anticoccidial drugs; adding to the feed of pigs can promote fat metabolism, thereby reducing the fat of pigs and increasing the lean meat ratio; adding to fish In shrimp feed, it can be used as an efficient attractant to increase the feed intake of fish and shrimp, and increase the survival rate of shrimp. Since betaine is a neutral substance, it will not destroy the vitamins in the feed.

Therefore, the application of betaine hydrochloride in poultry production will surely be favored by more and more feed manufacturers and has broad development prospects.
