PURAC introduces soluble calcium source
PURAC has developed a new product for the feed industry. CALFEED HI SOL is a
highly soluble calcium source that improves the health of recently weaned
piglets when added to the feed.
Calcium is essential for the development of the bone structure, especially
for young animals. It also plays a part in the various vital functions of tissue
and organs. For these important functions a good solubility of the calcium is
CALFEED HI SOL is a highly soluble calcium source and is
specifically developed for piglets to guide them through the weaning process in
a healthy way and without any delay in growth development.
distinguishes itself from other calcium sources, such as for instance calcium
formate, by an excellent sweet sour taste that safeguards the level of feed
intake of the piglets. The high calcium content of the
product guarantees good intestinal health.
Nico Kors – Market Unit
Manager Feed & Agro – explains "the new product is one of the most effective
calcium sources. We conducted a test with a standard calcium source and with our
product. The feed intake of CALFEED HI SOL compared to the standard calcium
source increased by 36.6%. The growth even improved by 47.7% whereas the feed
conversion increased by 25.5%."
In particular the combination of a
superior selection of sugars, combined with the mild taste of lactate
makes the product the most suitable product for economic and
profitable pig management.
