Product Description

CIL Provides Accredited Animal Feed Inspection Services in India. Animal feeds are important, not only to the feedsmanufacturers and animal producers, but also to the regulators, policy makers,processors and the final consumers of the end products. This is because animalfeed is an integral part of the food supply chain and it is critical to theefficient and profitable production of quality and safe food. Thus, feed safetyis critical to food safety. Stakeholders interested in producing safe foodsmust be, and are rightly, concerned with the safety of animal feeds. Researchevidence regarding risks associated with consumption of contaminated feeds andseveral epidemics which were traceable to animal feeds in different countrieshave made the demands for safe feed even more serious in recent times.Ingredients, suppliers and processing methods used in the process of feedproduction may significantly impact public health. As part of the measures toensure that feed ingredients and feedstuffs meet the various quality and safetyrequirements, a wide range of analyses, both scientific and socio economic, arecarried out in the feed and food industry. Some of the reasons stakeholderscarry out feed analysis are for regulations and enforcement, recommendations,labelling, validation of manufacturers quality claims, feed, food safety anddefence, quality control in feed production, and for research and development.Adoption of standard sampling and analytical methods assist in accuratelycharacterizing the problems and contribute to the integrity of the results.This chapter focuses on some aspects of analysis in the feed industry to ensurethe production of nutritious and safe food animals. 2. Animal feed and foodsupply chain, Every step from primary production to final consumption, that is,from farm to fork, makes up the food chain. Feed production, plays significantrole in the production of food of animal origin and it is, therefore, acritical aspect of the food chain. Therefore, all key actors on every nodes ofthe food chain are responsible for the production of safe, healthy andnutritious feeds. Feed hazards, Food safety hazards connected with feed safetyhas heightened the concern and level of seriousness given globally to feedanalysis in recent times. Contaminants in feeds can be inherent or naturallyoccurring such as mycotoxins and heavy metals, or industrial substances such aspolychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and pesticides. Feed contaminants, as in thecase of food contaminants, can also be biological, chemical, and physical (radionuclides).Three important criteria used for selecting hazards of current importance infeeds are relevance of hazards to public health, extent of occurrence of thehazard, and impact of the hazard on international trade in food and feed. Inview of the potentially harmful effects of toxic levels of elemental mineralsin animal feeds, it is essential for stakeholders to have a good grasp of themaximum tolerable levels (MTL) so that it will not be exceeded. Maximumtolerable limits of a mineral is the dietary level that will not impair theperformance or health of the animal when fed over a particular period of time.In 2005, National Research Councils Committee on Minerals and Toxic Substancesin Diets and Water for Animals recommended MTL of some minerals in feeds offood producing animals and may serve as a guide depending on the condition ofthe animals.
