At the heart of the formulation, the valuation of raw materials is a fundamental aspect. From the precise description of the nutritional values of raw materials follows the precision of the formulation. In order to produce adapted foods that comply with the specifications, this valuation of raw materials is a fundamental first step.
This valuation is usually based on physicochemical analyzes, which allow us to obtain values for fundamental nutrients such as, for example, protein, fat, cellulose, moisture, etc. and on the other hand, from values calculated using a set of equations derived from public or private zootechnical research.
Raw material valuation tables are available and have been made public. However, their main disadvantage lies in their static nature.
A-Systems has developed in 2019 a technology called “RMLink” that dynamically updates your raw materials in real time, calculating equations from standard matrices.
