Zinc is an essential trace element in animal nutrition and plays an important role in several biological functions. It is linked to the function of enzymes and hormones even in small quantities. It cannot be replaced by other elements in the metabolisam. Zinc dificiency would cause poor growth, loss of appetite, and a bad feed conversation rate. It also has an important function in defense enzymes.
In the past, Zinc was added to feed mostly in the form of Zinc Sulphate or Zinc Oxide, but very few of them was absorbed by the animal body as most of them were excreted and this cause cost problem and environment problem.
Now, we are good position to offer the Organic Zinc products at the form of Zinc Glycinate and Zinc Methionine.
The Organic Zinc is the third generation of trace mineral feed additives. They are manufactured with metal ion bound to amino acid 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 zinc to reach the target organs and tissues to maximize the utilization of trace minerals. At the target organs or tissues, the Organic Zinc 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 Zinc then will be well ensured.
