INTEC's nutritional research is a worldwide effort with supporting theoretical and practical applications that are adapted to meet the needs of in-country, commercial aquaculture and animal production, and pet nutrition. A multifaceted approach to practical nutritional problem-solving involves:
1. Quality control of ingredients
2. Nutritional values of new ingredients
3. Practical diet formulation and feeding programs
4. Diet and disease interactions
5. Diet and its relationship to environment or water quality and management
6. Diet quality, acceptability and performance
Formulations are evaluated constantly to achieve lower feeding cost with optimum performance.
Feeds and feeding methods are major costs in aquaculture and animal production or pet nutrition, that require constant attention.
New least-cost diets are constantly being developed which decrease feed cost. These are applications of linear programming through computer technology to improve diet performance.
The cost and availability of quality diet ingredients fluctuates widely. INTEC has developed the capability to produce quality rations at the lowest cost, by utilizing certain waste or by-products and unconventional raw materials, converting them into highly nutritious feed materials.
Feeding requirements vary greatly with different life stages and environments of cultured aquatic animals, whether they are freshwater, brackish or marine species. Feed manufacturers must take into consideration many factors, including variations in protein, energy, vitamin-mineral and micro-nutrient requirements, particle size, water stability, floating or sinking rates, attractability, pigmentation, texture and density. In addition, it is sometimes necessary to provide customers with medicated or other specialized feeds to counter the effects of stress and disease.
INTEC's research coupled with many years of practical and theoretical experience in aquaculture feeds manufacturing, nutrition and production of aquatic species, are invaluable supports to our technology, products and services for fish, shrimp or prawn nutrition and production.
INTEC's line of specialty ingredients and additives, along with a full range of research services and processing technologies for the pet food industry are supported by over 20 years of practical experience, maintaining a sensitivity to pet food market trends with its ever-changing requirements, has enabled the company to offer its international customers the latest in ingredient technology.
