How feed processing
Feed processing equipment is becoming a larger part of the food
safety conversation amid tightening regulations and the movement
away from antibiotics.
eed mills are utilizing high
cook temperatures in processing equipment to pasteurize
ingredients and meet the strong demand for feed that is free from toxins
and pathogens, such as Salmonella.
Eliminating pathogens in feed
has been a main concern for many
years, but the issue has taken on a new
dimension with tighter Food Safety
Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations; the movement away from using
chemicals in feed, such as the European
Union's ban on formaldehyde; and
the pressure to end feedgrade antibiotics.
With more than 2,400 strains of Salmonella, and tightening
regulations, feed mills are utilizing processing equipment as a
solution to produce safe, quality feed. scimages20 | Bigstockphoto.com
