INCREASING DEMAND FOR HIGH VALUE ANIMAL PROTEIN
Twenty percent of the human body is made up of protein. However, ingested protein is not stored and must be constantly replenished. An average person needs 75 grams of protein per day through plant or animal sources in his diet. Unlike plant protein sources, such as beans, lentils, and nuts, which lack in one or two essential amino acids, the human body requires animal protein sources such as meat, fish, eggs, and dairy. This property of animal protein is driving the demand for protein-rich animal meat among the health-conscious population. The surge in demand for animal protein, especially across the North American countries, such as Mexico and Cuba, has generated the need for alternative and cost effective protein sources, thus, accelerating the demand for feed premix. Moreover, the prices of egg and meat in the matured economies have declined, over the last five years, thereby, boosting the demand for effective animal protein. For example, over the past five years in North America, egg prices decelerated by 51% and poultry prices by 16%. This decrease in prices is making consumers, with low income, opt for animal protein.

INCREASED AWARENESS REGARDING SAFETY OF MEAT AND MILK PRODUCTS
Food safety is one of the important issues for governments across the world, especially in North America and Europe. The use of feed premix, particularly the ones containing antioxidants, antibiotics, enzymes, and, vitamins, provide balanced nutrition to animals and protect them against the disease-causing environmental influences. Certain pathogenic and parasitic contaminations in meat products (salmonella, listeria, and E. coli), and various disease outbreaks in livestock animals (swine flu, and foot and mouth disease) in the past decade have raised concerns over meat quality and safety.
Increasing awareness among consumers, worldwide, is boosting the demand for safe meat and animal by-products, which is prompting the livestock industry and meat manufacturers to use additives and premixes in their compound feed. This usage can prevent diseases and malnutrition in livestock, further, ensuring that the food is safe and wholesome.
