3 Reasons Why Use Yeast Beta Glucan in Fish Nutrition

The animal protein industry has exponentially grown, and intensive production practices cause unavoidable stress to the animals as a result of confinement, transport and handling. Stress generates a physiological condition characterized by suppressed immunity, and consequently, higher disease susceptibility. Yeast Beta Glucan in Aquaculture In aquaculture, in particular, fish are not easily observed by the stock person, and disease outbreaks are often overlooked. Therefore, novel ways to boost the immune response of fish are needed. One natural option that is highly effective is the use of beta glucan because they are considered modifiers of biological response due to their immunomodulatory

Why can yeast beta-glucans help your immune system?

Our body’s immune system is the army that protects us against any attack. On the other hand, antibodies are the proteins that our body generates to protect us and keep our defenses in good condition for a while. Finally, there is a more primitive but equally effective immune system, the so-called innate immune system. It is composed of a series of cells and tissues that are part of our body from birth. While antibodies are specific and need the first infection to be generated, the innate immune system protects us from the first moment against any invasion. We could say that

Yeast Cell Wall & Yeast Beta Glucan: Relation, Function, Implication and More

Introduction Yeast beta-glucan and Yeast Cell Wall (YCW) are two additives from yeast that could provide Polysaccharides in Feed. They are yeast derivatives to improve animal performance, and there are different confusing concepts between them.  In this article, beta-glucans and YCW will be put together to discuss their relation, function, and usage in the field of animal nutrition. Brief on Yeast Cell Wall  YCW is often called the MOS product; it is the natural source of mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS) and Yeast 1,3/1,6-D-beta glucan. YCW contains 20%-35% Mannan, 20%-35% Glucan, 2%, and less than 35% protein.  In the feed industry, Yeast cell

Benefits of Using Purified Beta Glucans

Purified Beta Glucan has a strong modulating effect on the immune system, making the animal more resistant to health problems. The use of purified Beta glucan in animal feed reduces mortality and improves the response after vaccination. If you type the word “Beta Glucans” in Google, in 1 second you will find more than 1.3 million articles that talk about the beneficial effects of the use of these dietary fibers in human and animal nutrition. In recent decades, beta-glucans have received special attention in human nutrition, mainly for their ability to activate host defense mechanisms and for their anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory,

Beta glucan V.S. Beta glucanase

What is beta glucan? Beta-glucans (β-glucans) are bioactive compounds extracted from yeast and certain fungi, and seaweeds. They are known as immunomodulatory elements. In other words, they help the immune system become “smarter” by optimizing its ability to recognize and attack toxic elements and even cancer cells. What is beta glucanase? Beta-Glucanase is an enzyme that breaks down a glucan, a polysaccharide made of glucose molecules linked together. These glucans also create up to 60% of the cell wall of many forms of fungal organisms. Benefits of the beta glucan Support the immune system Lower cholesterol and enhance heart health
