Antioxidants are a crucial element in every livestock diet as they preserve valuable nutrients and protect the diet from oxidation, ensuring optimal animal health, performance and carcass quality.
"The science is undeniable: the risk of feed oxidation is considerable and inherent to the feed production process," said Karen Bierinckx, product manager of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health (EMENA). "Oxidation can happen at any point in the production and distribution of feed, from the addition of oxidation-prone ingredients, such as lipids, to the preparation of premix, to heat-induced oxidation during transportation and storage. Supplementation of quality, peroxide-free feed improves animal welfare and assures healthy livestock products - which we consume daily. This helps preserve and provide consumer nutritional and health benefits."
Globally, consumers are demanding more natural, sustainable and eco-friendly food products, making food producers move away from synthetic additives towards green, alternative products.
"To meet this emerging need, Kemin has developed Paradigmox Green, a fully natural blend that is also suitable for organic production," said Frederika Somers, business manager (nutrition for monogastrics) of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health (EMENA). "By launching Paradigmox Green, Kemin now can offer a complete antioxidant solutions portfolio — liquid or dry, traditional or organic — that fits seamlessly with our customers' specific requirements."
Kemin scientists have developed unique liquid and dry blends consisting of synergistic mixes of natural tocopherols with chelators for complete protection against oxidation. The antioxidants in Paradigmox Green are permitted for use in organic farming to help animal nutrition and health specialists meet market expectations.
"The combination of tocopherols with natural ingredients makes Paradigmox Green a very effective antioxidant that benefits the animal, farmer, feed producer, retailer and final end-product user," said Bierinckx. "With this newest solution, Kemin can answer the market demand for more environmentally-friendly practices and boost Europe's green economy."
