What are chelated Minerals
Trace Minerals are essential for daily biological functions of all livestock and poultry. Although trace minerals are found in very small amounts, the balance is crucial for everyday metabolic functions of the animal. There are two minerals of trace minerals: Inorganic and organic. Most mineral manufactures utilize the inorganic from of trace minerals since they are the cheapest from trace minerals. Even with high supplementation levels, it is common that minerals supplied in inorganic forms are not absorbed at the levels and speed required by animals. Minerals play an important role in regular dietary requirements of animal feed and are essential for growth, reproduction and milk/egg production. Essential minerals are destroyed during the digestion process due to interactions with other components of feed.
Chelatesare useful in animal nutrition to protect trace minerals during digestion. The goal of forming chelates is to increase the bioavailability of minerals to the animals to support metabolic functions.
Advantages of Purn Chelated Minerals to animals:
Chelates and other complexes are useful in animal nutrition to protect trace minerals during digestion. The goal of forming chelates is to increase the bioavailability of minerals to the animals to support metabolic functions.
- Improvement in animal produces quality (meat, milk, egg, wool, etc.)
- Improves the bioavailability of minerals.
- Counteracts the anti-nutritional factor, which affects minerals
- Improves Performance
- Health improvement (immune status, functional nutrition)
- Reduce degenerative effect of trace minerals on vitamins in premixes and feed.
Advantages of using Purn Chelated Minerals to manufacturers
Chelated minerals are bound to organic compounds (such as amino acids or proteins). This is what makes the price slightly higher than inorganic minerals. However, chelated minerals allow for better absorption and overall utilization when compared to inorganic minerals. Chelated minerals can be recognized by the terms “glycinate or amino acid chelate: following the minerals. Usually, inorganic mineral may not be absorbed to provide the animal with adequate
concentrations. This is where PURN Chelated Minerals provide the maximal benefit while being cost effective.
In addition, animals fed chelated sources of essential trace minerals excrete lower amounts in their faeces, and so there is less environment contamination.
