Iron Glycinate

Iron Glycinate

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

Iron 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 Iron Glycinate:

SpeciesTargetBenefits
SwinePiglet1Increasing the feed intake by improving feed palatability with enriched flavors of amino acid and faint flavor of metal;
2Improving piglet growth rate by providing more effective iron source;
3Reducing hypo ferric anemia;
4Improving piglet immunity.
5Suppressing intestinal bacteria as iron glycine chelate could not be iron source for them.
Fattener1Improving the synthesis of hemoglobin and improving the skin color;
2Improving the synthesis of myoglobin and improving the meat color;
3Increasing the daily body gain rate and lean meat percentage by improving the synthesis of purine.
Sow1Increasing piglet birth weight and survival rate; improving the piglet growth rate when lactation;
2Improving feed palatability and increasing feed intake when sow in heat stress in summer;
3Increasing iron content in milk (iron glycine chelate easily passing sow placental barrier), increasing piglet iron reserve and preventing piglet hypo ferric anemia.
PoultryBroiler1Increasing broiler growth rate by improving synthesis of protein;
2Improving the crest color and meat color.
Layer1Increasing the laying rate;
2Improving the eggshell color and eggshell color by improving the synthesis of iron porphyrin;
3Deeping the yolk color.

1Improving fish hypochromic spherical anemia;
2Increasing the survival rate and improving disease resistance.
3Improving anti-stress ability.
