VVRS Protein Meal – Peanut Meal (Expeller)
Peanut meal is a by-product from the pressing of peanuts for oil extraction.Nutritionally peanut meal is deficient in the sulphur amino acids and lysine. The quality is influenced by the quantity of hulls in the meal and extent of heating during the processing.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
• Peanut meal can be included in diets for pigs, poultry, cattle, sheep and horses of all ages.
• The level of inclusion in diets for finisher pigs should be limited since residual oil in the meal may cause soft fat in the pig carcass. A maximum limit of 10% is recommended for inclusion in finisher pig diets.
• Peanuts that have been allowed to become mouldy may contain toxic substances. The fungus aspergillus flavus produces the mycotoxin, aflatoxin. Peanut meal derived from contaminated or mouldy peanuts may contain the toxin and therefore should not, under any circumstances be fed to pigs, poultry or horses.
• Aflatoxin in feed for pigs, poultry, cattle and horses causes loss of appetite, reduced growth rate and fertility. Aflatoxin can be transmitted from the animal into milk and other products.REF: (Evans. M, 1985)
