Lysophosholipids are important biosurfactants to achieve best performance in animals
 
Dr. K.V. Chandrasekar
 
 

Lysophospholipids play an important role in animal nutrition as digestive surfactants as it assists in fat digestion by their ''oil-in-water'' emulsifying properties, and also improve the emulsification of feed fats through micelle formation and enhance the absorption of nutrients.

 

Feeds are better dispersed in the aqueous environment of the digestive tract, nutrient transport is becoming easier and nutrient absorption is enhanced though increased cell membrane permeability by the action of lysophosphosholipids.

 

Collectively, this would lead to better feed utilisation in terms of energy, proteins, fats and minerals and to more environmentally friendly animal production.
