The diet of animals, whether they are animals intended for the production of food or pets, similarly to the human one, must bring in the right balance the main nutritional elements such as carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals. Until the middle of the last century, the feeds were nutrient-poor, often produced and stored inadequately, and the rations were often insufficient for animal needs, with consequences on well-being and increased sensitivity to diseases. In recent decades, the progress of scientific research on animal nutrition has allowed a continuous improvement of the quality of feeds to obtain foods more and more attentive to the state of health of animals and humans. To ensure well-being, the animal must be provided in qualitative-quantitative terms the nutrients necessary for growth and health and, to achieve this goal, all feed nutrients must be selected, controlled, balanced but also exempt from some anti-nutritional factors and contaminants present in many raw materials of plant origin. These characteristics contribute to a single important objective: to obtain effects for the welfare of the animal and to support the productive activity of healthy animals (which need limited antibiotic treatments) maximizing their yield in meat, in the production of milk / eggs and reproductive fertility.
