Nutritional facts about lean meat production in Swine Industry

In the recent past, swine industry has gained important and continuous progress from selection for constantly increasing lean muscle gain and decreasing fat deposition, in order to meet the increasing demand of market and cognizant consumers for quality, tasty and safe meat products. 

  • Increased Profitability
  • Improved Carcass Traits
  • Increasing Demand and Market Value

What are the symbolic characteristics of “Lean Meat” ?

Lean meat relatively has less fat and cholesterol content, specially in the prime cuts like ham and loin, etc. Larger longissimus muscle areas, longer carcasses and hypertrophy of the muscle fibres due less fat deposition. Importantly better organoleptic attributes, so does the better market price.

The simplest means to estimate the lean tissue mass in the pigs’ body is the use of B-mode real time ultrasound equipment. This is the preferred method. However, it requires that accurate relationships between ultrasound measurements (loin-eye area and back-fat thickness).

Factors Intervening the Lean Meat Production

A proper interpretation of lean growth curves is important as different factors like genotype, sex, amino acid or energy intake, and environmental stresses may affect lean growth at different stages of growth.

Nutrient and energy intake: Sub-optimal intakes of essential nutrients and energy will limit pigs from expressing their lean growth potential. For this reason, practical pig diets are generally over-fortified with the relatively inexpensive nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Furthermore, close attention should be paid to dietary levels of energy, lysine, and the other essential amino acids and to daily feed intakes when managing grower-finisher pigs.

METALEAN (Protein Optimizer for High Lean Growth), A Safe Cure for the Intruding Factors.

  • Remarkable Lean Meat Gain
  • Improved Feed Efficiency
  • Globally Accepted
  • 100% Natural Components
  • Intensive Research Originated Product
  • Less Inclusion Levels in the Feed

From practical standpoint, our exclusive product “METALEAN” integrates the diversity of available genotypes (from the fattest to the leanest), along with production and environmental conditions, to set the optimum conditions for lean growth in swine.

“METALEAN” is the remedy for observed trend to some degradation of meat quality with intense selection for muscular growth, particularly with regard to technological and organoleptic characteristics, necessitates taking into account these constraints in feeding; whether one considers fat deposition or lean tissue gain (extent of intramuscular fat).  

The use of improved pig genetics for higher growth rate and lean meat percentage has led to deterioration of pig meat quality. “METALEAN” has shown profound impact on improving meat quality and carcass traits.

Several research trials on “METALEAN” have showed positive effects on feed efficiency, protein (muscle) deposition and reducing fat oxidation, resulting in improved performance and meat quality (colour, firmness, marbling, etc). This phytogenic feed additive is an effective natural solution with high acceptance by consumers for their safeness and compliance with environmental sustainability.

Feeding Recommendations

1-2 kg per ton of feed or as per veterinarian’s advise
