Feed mixtures for farm animals are nowadays typically based on monocultures and do not contain components from traditional herbs, spices and medical plants anymore. PerformaNat analyzes the effects of plant-derived active ingredients on the uptake of feed nutrients and on the immune system. Our goal is to find out how these substances can be used in animal feeds in order to improve animal health.
Elucidating the transport mechanisms of nutrients is the key for successful product development. Several methods are available to analyze transport processes of cells.
Following in vitro laboratory studies, PerformaNat conducts feeding studies to analyze the in vivo effects of the test items on the metabolism of animals.
