Vitamin E 50 %


    ApplicationsThis product is used for the vitaminization of all types of feed. It is very readily miscible and because of its large particle number per unit of weight, highly suitable for premixtures, mineral feeds and for mixed feed. The milky emulsion which is formed is stable, The mixing behaviour of the powder in premixes and feeds is excellent. Particularly suitable for Feed Mixtures whith high contents of Choline chloride, trace elements and alkaline substances. Milk replacers for piglets, calves, and other animals. Water dispersible multivitamin mixtures which are administered directly via the drinking water.

    StabilityIn mixtures vitamin E losses can occur depending on the composition (eg; higher trace elements content) and the production and storage conditions (pelleting, action of heat). These active substance losses are particularly important in the presence of strong vitamin stress factors (moisture, choline chloride, trace elements) and in alkaline medium (high contents of magnesium oxide) In critical mixtures, Vitamin E 50% should be employed to improve the vitamin E stability. The vitamin stability of this coated product is somewhat better under stress conditions than that of the Vitamin E absorbates.
    Storage24 months when stored in the original unopened packaging
