Feed Phosphates : MAP – Aquaphos
Since ruminants are able to use the nitrogen to build up protein in their rumen, Windmill® Monamphos is a very suitable phosphorus source for such animals.
It equates to more than 68 % crude protein.
Because of the high water-soluble phosphorus content, the product has a superior biological value for all classes of animals.
Due to its low pH-value, it has a fresh smell and will therefore readily be eaten by the animals.
Additionally, it releases no ammonia when it is mixed into mineral mixtures or meal compounds - with or without molasses or steam addition.
Windmill® Monamphos is available in granular and powdered form, making it is easy to use in all compound feeds, mineral mixtures and even liquid feeds. It is especially suitable for feeds that need a phosphorus, rather than a calcium, supplementation
Windmill® Aquaphos is a feed phosphate especially designed and produced by Aliphos for use in aquaculture nutrition. The high P-solubility explains why Windmill® Aquaphos has the highest P-digestibility and P-retention amongst all feed phosphates used in aquafeed, as proven in several trials with different aquaculture species. All results show a digestibility above 90%.
Windmill® Aquaphos is the inorganic phosphate with the highest phosphorus content (26%). It doesn’t contain calcium (Ca) but it is certainly an interesting parameter for aqua species! Ca is absorbed from the surrounding water by the gills and intestine. It is, therefore, difficult to control the total Ca intake. Since fish are capable of absorbing sufficient amounts of Ca from the surrounding water, normally no additional Ca has to be supplied via the feed. However, Ca is present in almost all feed ingredients. Therefore, attention should be paid to the Ca/P ratio in the feed. A ratio that is too high can affect the P digestibility of the feed through the formation of indigestible Ca phosphates in the intestinal track due to the increase in pH after passing through the stomach. Therefore, if an additional supply of P is needed, a Ca-free feed phosphate, such as Windmill® Aquaphos, is preferred.
