Lucta SA opens its Virtual Library for information on Palatability Research

logo-lucta-usa_pms485.jpgOver the years, Lucta has devoted considerable time and resources to investigate the influence of palatability on animal feeding behaviour. Our aim is to provide the market with science-based products and proven results, satisfying both customers and animals.

In order to more successfully bring results of our palatability research to the scientific and technical community, we have established a Virtual Library that utilizes the speed and efficiency of the internet.

We are opening the Virtual Library on January 14th. In it, the visitor will find an electronic trove of palatability research papers, published since 1999 and derived mainly from major meetings and congresses. The Library user will be able to choose between on-screen document reading and navigation, or download high-quality PDF versions for home or office printing.

Lucta’s Virtual Library is open to everyone wishing to review, learn, consult or apply the knowledge derived from years of research. We believe it is especially useful for the technicians in the feed manufacturers, the nutrition consultant, and the science community.

We will continuously add knowledge to the Virtual Library. The newer titles will always be found at the front page. Older material will be located into the document repository, where they can be searched by keyword and accessed directly from the search results page.

We hope this new tool will improve the feed industry technician’s awareness of the potential help derived from the use of science-based flavours; the researcher will find references to Universities that tried and tested feeding concepts with success; and the consultant will find a cache of useful information for meeting his/her customer’s requirements.

The Virtual Library direct link is or enter it from within our Website.

Lucta SA is a special additive manufacturer, world leader in the segment of flavours for animal feed. It has headquarters in Spain and production centres in Spain, Mexico, Colombia and China. You can contact us at
