Sel-Plex 1000 approved for organic farming

The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), a United States body tasked with approving the organic status of materials, has approved Alltech's application for Sel-Plex 1000, making it the third product Alltech has listed with the institute.

Since 1993, Sel-Plex 1000 has been a standard organic selenium source in animal diets around the world.  Due to the recent OMRI listing, it can now be included in all organic feeding programmes across the United States and is approved for use in organic farming.
“Selenium is an essential nutrient for both animals and people, and plays a critical role in metabolism, normal growth, reproductive health, and immunity,” stated Alltech’s president Dr. Pearse Lyons. “Because of its specific organic form, Sel-Plex selenium is better absorbed and retained by the animal. Sel-Plex provides selenium in nature’s form – the safest form.”
Sel-Plex is the only FDA reviewed form of organic selenium, and is the first strain specific form of organic selenium to be EU approved for all species (Strain:Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-3060).
