The Humic Products Trade Association has filed a petition proposing the the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) amend its rule on food additives in animal feed.
The group, which advocates for the commercial use of humic products, has petitioned the administration for new regulations that allow for the safe use of humate, fulvic acid and humic substances as a source of iron in animal feed.
Humic products are composed either in-part or primarily of humic substances, humic acids and/or fulvic acids. The vast array of humic products includes naturally-occurring mined materials such as leonardite, oxidized lignite. According to the International Humic Substances Society humic products may also be used in formulations such as livestock feeds and pet foods.
