Abstract

Animal-derived foods make important contributions to energy and nutrient intake from most Western diets. The proper nutrition of farm animals is a key component of a successful production system. An understanding of the farm animal’s digestive process and basic nutrition is required for effective feeding and management. Thus, the approach to animal nutrition is changing: feed must be considered not only in terms of its nutritional properties, but also in terms of its ability to promote animal health (animal prospective) and in designing nutritious food for humans (human prospective). The present research has yielded knowledge on how food of animal origin can be tailored to specific requirements and needs of human’s diet. These research areas are of large strategic importance for the ability of the livestock and food industry to develop novel, competitive, health-promoting products.
