Trace minerals are essential at all stages in high performance diets. It serves crucial functions in structural, physiological, catalytic and cell replication. Inorganic mineral salts have been supplemented in increasing levels to achieve animal performance potentials.
Challenges of inorganic salts:
It is well known that many inorganic salts are highly oxidative (e.g. CuSO4, ZnSO4) causing negative effects to many nutrients in the formulation like vitamins, essential fatty acids, enzymes, etc. In addition, these inorganic salts in nature are having antagonistic effects on each other causing inefficiency in utilization. In return a significant amount of unabsorbed trace minerals is passed out to the environment.
Quality organic source is the solution:
To solve these challenges in using traditional inorganic sources, organic trace minerals have been developed by various industrial players in the past few decades. More and more feed millers or integrators are adapting to use more effective organic trace minerals to further improve their feed quality and animal performance while reducing environmental emission. Organic trace minerals like CaliMet series are hydroxy methionine chelated minerals that are efficient, safe and environmentally friendly.
Recent studies by XJ bio research center show that lower levels of trace mineral supplementation from organic source can replace high level of traditional inorganic source with equal or better performance.
When appropriate safe, effective organic trace minerals are used to replace inorganic source, feed quality can be improved providing better animal performance and less emission to the environment.
“XJ Bio-Engineering Company is located in the heart of Hunan province in China, one of the most abundant sources of raw materials in the World for trace mineral production. XJ Bio has recently invested in a state of the art production facility with the largest capacity in the world, and formed a strategic partnership with Berg + Schmidt to service the Middle East.
