Trial report 743: Wheat protein C*HYPROW for weaners

C*HYPROW, hydrolysed wheat protein, in combination with potato protein concentrate may be a realistic alternative to fish meal and soy protein if the price is competitive and amino acid standards are met.

Abstract

The aim of the trial was to investigate the effect in the production of using hydrolysed wheat protein, C*HYPROW (Cerestar HYPROW 21100), as an alternative to fish meal. A control diet containing fish meal was compared with two trial diets with different content of C*HYPROW and potato protein concentrate from AKV-Langholt.

Group 1:   Control diet containing fish meal.
Group 2:   Diet 1 containing 8 % C*HYPROW and diet 2 containing 5 % C*HYPROW.
Group 3:   Diet 1 containing 5 % C*HYPROW and 4 % AKV potato protein concentrate and diet 2 containing 5 % C*HYPROW and 3 % AKV potato protein concentrate.

The diets containing C*HYPROW and no potato protein concentrate (group 2) resulted in a significantly lower production value compared with the control group. The combination of C*HYPROW and potato protein concentrate (group 3) resulted in the same production value as the control group. The lower production value in group 2 was probably caused by a valine deficiency compared with the standard. The current production value, including the price of the diets, was 10 % lower in group 2 and 5 % lower in group 3 compared with the control group. C*HYPROW in combination with potato protein concentrate could be a realistic alternative to fish meal and soy protein. However, in order for the economy to be balanced, the price must be competitive and the standards for all essential amino acids must be met.
