Tetrabasic Zinc Chloride

Tetrabasic zinc chloride (TBZC) has less heavy metal contamination than other Zn sources such as zinc sulfate (ZnSO4) and ZnO. Diet supplemented with TBZC has low oxidation risk during storage due to the low hygroscopic capacity of TBZC. The relative Zn bioavailability in TBZC is one to two times higher than that of feed-graded ZnO. As a result, the TBZC is an effective growth promoter requiring a lower dose concentration than that of ZnO and with less fecal Zn excreted into the environment. TBZC has shown a stronger anti-diarrhea effect at a lower Zn dose compared to ZnO used in pharmacological doses in weaned pig diets, which is due to its better ability to reduce intestinal permeability and prevent the disruption of barrier integrity. Therefore, TBZC would be a good source of inorganic Zn supplemented in weaned pig diets.
