Copper Glycinate

Copper Glycinate is the third generation of trace mineral feed additives. It is manufactured with metal ion bound to glycine molecule which form ring compound with proper structure. This organic ring compound is very stable when passing the pre-intestinal volatile environment which allows the organic copper to reach the target organs and tissues to maximize the utilization of trace minerals. At the target organs or tissues, the Copper Glycinate is absorbed as a whole molecule by the way of peptide path and amino acid path. Meanwhile, the metal ion was bound into a complete molecule and this reduces the antagonistic functions. The best bioavailability of Copper has been well ensured as all mentioned above.

On the other hand, Copper Glycinate offers less ruining to other nutritional ingredients in the feed like vitamin, protein, etc. It also offers better palatability. These have improved the feed quality and feed efficiency.
