Clinoptilolite of sedimentary origin (under the trade name ZeoFeed) is an authorized feed additive from the category of technological additives (functional group g-Binders and i-Anticaking agents).
It meets all legislative requirements applicable to feed in the EU and also complies with the provisions of legislation for organic production.
ZeoFeed can be directly incorporated into the complete feed mixture at the recommended dose for each animal species (pigs 6-10 g / kg feed, poultry, 7 g / kg feed, cattle 150 g / head / day).
Animal feed additive ZeoFeed can be added as an ad-on to complete the formulation, or by substitution of one component of a complete feed formulations (e.g. wheat, wheat bran / flour, rice bran) in the dose of 0.5 to 1%.
ZeoFeed for animal nutrition as binding agent is suitable for use as a carrier (base component) for production of premixes. Thanks to the zeolite properties (ion-exchange, reversible hydration and dehydration), the final premix based on zeolite gets in addition, some beneficial properties after incorporation into feed (binding free water, ammonia).
The anti-caking properties decrease the tendency for the adhesion of the individual feed particles. During the production process of the feed, water is lost and consequently the feed is reduced in volume and weight. After adding ZeoFeed, the feed is better moldable, dry and loose.
Natural product ZeoFeed for animal feed can be added into colostrum to calves.
