Less oxidative stress means healthier piglets

Oxidative stress is caused by the formation of free radicals, resulting from dietary stress in the form of low quality feed, environmental stress and social stress. The process occurs during and after piglets' weaning.

Feeding trials from Germany and China show a direct link between digestible proteins and piglets performance. According to these studies, piglets that receive a high quality protein starter report an improved inflammatory status and, consequently, a better performance. Their oxidative stress is lower, so they move smoother through the weaning period.
