Antioxidants in feed fats

Feed fats are essential in animal nutrition for animal performance and productivity. Oxidation of these fats can affect animal average daily weight gain, feed intake, and feed efficiency. Antioxidants delay the oxidation and preserve the quality of fats. Vitablend offers a wide range of antioxidant systems, both traditional and natural, adjusted by the degree of the fats’ oxidative instability.

for Vitamins

Protection

Vitamins are essential for growth, reproduction, and overall health. Our antioxidant systems prevent oxidation over the feeds’ shelf-life, avoiding the costly loss of vitamins added via premixes.

Protection

When fat oxidizes, the levels of peroxides and aldehydes increase, affecting animal immunity, resistance to stress, and lower gut health. Our antioxidant systems prevent that.
