Applications

 

Pea starch is a raw material for animal feed used in:

 

  • Piglets: the slower degradation of pea starch ensures better ingestion. The resistant starch stimulates intestinal flora;
  • In coated feed: high gelling properties and little product swelling;
  • Pet food: the glycemic value of NASTAR™ is weak (30) compared to 80 for maize and 70 for wheat. Pea starch shows good resistance to heat and acidic conditions.

Dosing

 

NASTAR™ feed pea starch is used for:

  • piglets: ±4% in order to give ±1% resistant starch stimulating the intestinal flora;
  • pet food: ±25%.
