The significance of fatty acid balance

一.What is fatty acid balance?
If you want to understand the balance of fatty acids, then let’s start with the balance of amino acids. Amino acid balance in the feed is a key factor in determining the quality of protein, over the years, a large number of scholars in the amino acid balance of the research has made considerable progress, research has proved that: in our country’s increasingly tense protein resources, through the regulation of amino acid balance in the feed, not only to promote animal growth, improve protein utilization, but also to reduce the level of feed crude protein. Many years of practice has proved: the use of amino acid balance feed is successful. When the relative content of protein amino acid components in the feed and the animal body ammonia basic needs of the relative ratio between the same or very close, amino acid components of the interrelationship between the balance of the amino acid utilization is the highest. This knowledge has taken 60-70 years to develop. Since amino acid balance is so important to the animal body, then as one of the three major nutrients in the feed of the importance of fatty acid balance is also self-evident, at present for the fatty acid balance of the research is less, can be said to be in the infancy stage, but even so, fatty acids and balanced fatty acids of the powerful function has come to the fore.

二.What are the main types of fatty acid balance?
There are three main areas that have been studied:
1.The balance of unsaturated fatty acids and saturated fatty acids
2.The balance of long, medium and short chain fatty acids
3.Balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6

三.What role does fatty acid balance play?
1.Unsaturated fatty acids and saturated fatty acids balance (U/S) helps fat absorption and utilization. The optimal value of U/S is 2.25 for laying hens, 2.75 for broilers and 2.91-3.84 for pigs.

2.The balance of long, medium and short chain fatty acids can supply energy to the body quickly, promote the development of small intestinal villi and make the intestinal tract healthier. Long-chain fatty acids are the main source of collective energy; medium-chain fatty acids have the effects of easy digestion, rapid oxidative energy supply, little deposition in the body, emulsification performance, improvement of insulin resistance, antiviral and antibacterial activity; short-chain fatty acids promote growth, improve the metabolism of small intestines and absorption of energy, reduce diarrhea, regulate the intestinal flora to maintain intestinal structural integrity and resistance to disease, regulate the inflammatory cytokines of the intestinal tract, promote immunity, and improve feed efficiency for the direct supply of energy to the intestinal tract, improve intestinal health. Efficiency Direct energy supply to intestine Improve intestinal ability, resist stress Improve intestinal antioxidant ability, reduce intestinal mucosal damage.

3.Balance of omega-6/omega-3 fatty acids can improve immune regulation, anti-inflammatory, improve feed compensation, improve reproductive performance, improve sperm quality, bright hair color, reduce the serious hair loss in the late stage of laying, and turn into “dressed turkey”.
