Lallemand Animal Nutrition introduced its new solution for livestock producers: YANG, the yeast association new generation.
An innovation borne from Lallemand research and the expertise of its various divisions — such as oenology, animal and human nutrition — the company said YANG is a synergistic alliance of specific strains of inactivated yeast. It is a concentrate of defenses supporting animals during stressful and challenging conditions, such as weaning, feed transitions and sanitary challenges. YANG can be used in most feed production processes.
According to Lallemand, the properties of yeast derivatives (products obtained from inactivated yeast cells) and their ability to (1) adhere to specific bacteria and (2) modulate the immune system are well known in human and animal nutrition. A collaborative examination conducted with research institutes reinforced the fact that these properties are highly strain dependent and linked to the yeast genome.
Thanks to cutting-edge technologies applied for the first time in this area, Lallemand research teams have selected yeast strains (including Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Cyberlindnera jadinii) with different and complementary properties and combined them in a unique formula called YANG.
Trials have been conducted in controlled facilities and in commercial farms showing beneficial effects in postweaning piglets, calves, goats, shrimp and fish. Further trials are ongoing in other animal species.
Lallemand noted that YANG is not available in all geographies.
