Book details information on nutrition within animal production, food safety and public health. Including hygiene, immune systems, digestion and diseases.
Sustainability and the reduced use of antibiotics are the major issues at the moment. Total Nutrition is a programme designed to respond to the modern issues of sustainability, animal health, high quality food production, environmental concerns and reduced use of antibiotics.
It focuses very strongly on the utilization of feed ingredients, both nutricines and nutrients in order to achieve this. Total Nutrition offers a way to continue to produce large quantities of low cost food for the human population in an acceptable manner. It is the foundation of a sustainable programme for the production of food of animal origin.
Total Nutrition 2nd Edition considers the practical implications and implementation of the principles and theories laid out in Nutricines, Clifford Adam's first successful book. In the new edition of the book there is a stronger emphasis on sustainable animal production.
In many countries there is now great resistance to the widespread use of antibiotic growth promoters and of other pharmaceutical products in raising animals for food. Unfortunately, there is frequently little appreciation by the population at large and by the media of the challenges this poses to the production of large volumes of low cost food of animal origin.
The concept of 'Total Nutrition' outlined here, may help to meet these challenges where health maintenance, disease avoidance and general nutrition are seen as requirements of animal diets today. This requires the consideration of both the nutrient levels of feeds and other bio-active components, known as nutricines. Initial results suggest that by judicious use of a range of nutricines, it will be possible to achieve both good health status of animals and good growth performance using feed formulations and ingredients that satisfy modern legislative and consumer demands.
This book is a must read for people who are interested in a Total Nutrition approach to food production, such as nutritionists, students and farmers.
Dr. Clifford Adams, originally from the UK, received his doctorate from the University of Illinois, USA and subsequently spent almost 25 years at Nutritional Services Director with a feed additive producer in Belgium. During this time he developed various nutritional strategies. These included; the concept of nutricines or bioactive feed ingredients, the Total Nutrition programme and the Nutrition-Based Health approach to animal production. These nutritional strategies were published by Nottingham University Press in the UK.
In May 2007 he established his own company, ANOZENE Nutritional Sciences, based in Belgium, where he continues his research and writing in the development of nutritional strategies for humans and animals. There is a particular interest in the relationship between nutrition and health and the Nutrition-based Health concept is now being further developed for application in human nutrition.
