What’s next in the world of organic selenium?

Selenomethionine is not the only effective form of organic selenium in feed supplementation. A technical session at VIV Asia will delve deeper into this.

The session, organised by company ABCA will discuss the outcomes from a new paper by Prof. Wayne Bryden from the University of Queensland in Australia.

Obtained from Torula yeast

He states that a new generation of organic selenium containing predominantly "Selenohomolanthionine" obtained from a proprietary strain of Torula yeast is rewriting scientist knowledge about selenium yeast.

Selenium enriched meat

Trials with Selenohomolanthionine (AB-Tor-Sel) has been shown to have a greater effect in boosting the selenium status in livestock and with potential benefits of wider and more sustainable distribution of the element in the body tissues. This could have possibilities for selenium enriched poultry for the Asian market for example.

Damian Moore, independent technical nutritional consultant (co-author of this paper) will be presenting some of this information at the technical session, which will be held at ABCA's booth F013, Hall 103 on 11 March at 3.00pm.
