ZeoFeed is a natural mineral Zeolite - Clinoptilolite, crystalline aluminosilicate mineral, of sedimentary origin. Its internal structure consists of many channels, pores and cavities. These pores are useful for cation-exchange capacity (CEC). The surface of Clinoptilolite is negatively charged. It has a strong affinity to positively charged selective elements or molecules.
The anti-caking properties reduce the tendency of the individual feed particles to adhere. During the feed production process, ZeoFeed adsorbs water contained in feedstuffs and subsequently the feed is reduced in volume and weight. After adding ZeoFeed, the feed is better formable, dry and loose.
ZeoFeed can be incorporated directly into a complete feed mixture for all animal species at a maximum dose of 10,000 mg / kg of complete feed or for individual species: pigs 6-10 g / kg feed, poultry 7 g / kg feed, cattle 150 g / piece /day). ZeoFeed can be added ad-on to the complete recipe, or by substituting some component of the complete feed formula (eg wheat, wheat bran / flour, rice bran) in an appropriate dose of max. 1%
ZeoFeed - a feed additive as a binder is suitable for use as a carrier (basic component) for the production of premixes. Thanks to the properties of zeolite (ion-exchange, reversible hydration and dehydration), the finished zeolite-based premix additionally acquires some beneficial properties after its incorporation into feed (free water binding, ammonia).
Based on more than 20 years of experiences, supported by dozens of scientific articles and industry professional peer reviewed studies with clinoptilolite in animal nutrition, is the substance further considered as an additive that contributes to increased feed efficacy, efficient use of feed energy, improved feed conversion, reduced ammonia concentration in the gastrointestinal tract and a factor that results in drier and less odoriferous manure with a higher nitrogen content.
