NNutritive Traits and the Use of Guar Meal in The Nutrition of Farm Animals
Guar (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba) is an annual pulse from the dry tropical regions; said to originate from the wild African species C. senegalesis. Although the leaves and pods can also be used, the seeds are the most used part of the plant. It has high protein content, with high digestibility and palatability without any toxicity sign, and can be used in farm animal nutrition as protein products. Guar meal is submitted to heat treatment to inhibit the anti-nutritive factors and significantly increase the productâ€™s digestibility and palatability. The Milan based company, Chemical SRL, produces a number of guar meal types such as GUAR 50PF, Guar 60PF and Guar 70PFR. This product can be used for all farm animals, especially cows, swine, poultry and fish, as it is not genetically modified (GMO-Free) and no other chemical substances are used during its fabrication process.
