Protein, Fat, Crude Fibre and Crude Ash - What Does What?

For a natural optimised food 4 main components are required: protein, fat, crude fibre and crude ash.

Scientists and pond fish experts develop the food concepts first and then they build a production line dedicated to the product and housed in a suitable building! But it was by following this unconventional approach that it was possible to offer you (or your fish) the first food which precisely meets the varying demands of different pond fish. This is a huge step towards species-appropriate animal care and towards animal welfare in practice.

What’s What?

This background knowledge will help you to understand the NEO INDEX, which literally means: Natural, Energy-Optimised nutrition. Behind this lies the ratio of proteins to fats in the food. We will now explain which tasks the individual factors fulfil:

PROTEIN

Proteins are basic components of the body and necessary for the building and renewal of body cells. Proteins as enzymes and hormones are also responsible for a wide range of tasks in the body. Amino acids are also classified as proteins and they create important conditions for healthy and good growth. Proteins can be found in all raw materials. Particularly suitable for the pond fish are protein sources from fish, crustaceans and molluscs.

FAT

Fats provide an important energy storage in the body and are therefore an especially important food component when higher storage is required (before winter). In addition there are also essential substances in fats (which the body cannot produce and have to be taken via food). High-quality fats with many Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are therefore an important supplement in fish food. Fish oil especially provides quite naturally the ideal composition of fats for our pond fish and further important substances, such as carotenes which support the colouring of the fish.

CRUDE FIBRE

Just like us, our fish need an indigestible proportion of their diet to support the digestion. The crude fibres make sure that the food is better absorbed.

CRUDE ASH

In crude ash substances can be found which can be absorbed as minerals or trace elements and are essential for many processes in the body. Important for the formation of the skeleton are, for example, calcium and phosphorus, for the metabolic processes sodium, potassium, magnesium and chlorine, and iron for the function of oxygen transport.
