Zinc Glycinate

Zinc 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 zinc to reach the target organs and tissues to maximize the utilization of trace minerals. At the target organs or tissues, the Zinc 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 Zinc has been well ensured as all mentioned above.

On the other hand, Zinc 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.

Benefits of Zinc Glycinate:

SwinePigletImproving the piglet daily body gain and increasing the feed conversation rate;
Increasing the feed intake by improving feed palatability with enriched flavors of amino acid and faint flavor of metal;
Improving piglet immunity and anti-disease ability; preventing piglet nutritional anemia; increasing the survival rate;
Improving the piglet fur condition - with better performance if using together with organic iron.
FattenerIncreasing the daily body gain rate and feed conversation rate;
Improving the meat quality;
Improving the fur condition.
SowImproving the sow physique; improving the reproduction performance and decreasing the piglet mortality;
Improving the sow health condition and preventing the hoof diseases including hoof cracking;
Improving the piglet health condition and effectively preventing the piglet anemia.
PoultryBroiler/LayerImproving the quality of eggshell and increasing the egg appearance - better performance if using together with organic manganese;
Increasing the laying rate;
Increasing the hatching rate of eggs;
Improving the growth condition;
Improving the anti-stress ability and increasing the survival rate;
Improving the poultry feather condition.
RuminantDairy/Beef/EquineIncreasing the body gain rate and improving the meat quality;
Increasing the milk yield;
Preventing toed hood diseases and preventing mastitis;
Decreasing cytokines level in milk.
AquacultureFish/ShrimpImproving the growth condition;
