Animal Feed & Petfoods

Niacet offers various solutions for the Animal Feed and Petfood industry, mainly focusing on spoilage prevention, feed hygiene and animal nutrition.

Feed Preservatives

Animal compound feeds (including aqua feed) generally contain mold spores and bacteria which originate from the environment, the raw materials or the equipment used to produce these animal feeds. The mycotoxins produced by certain species of molds cause clinical disturbance and disease and the use of molded feed can lead to diarrhea, anaemia, mycotic abortion and many other diseases. If bacteria are present at increased levels, they can also cause food poisoning. In general, the animal performance is reduced, resulting in economical loss. Niacet feed preservatives prevent spoilage by recontamination of the feed, maintain the nutritional value of the feed (resulting in higher feed efficiency) and act as an additional source of minerals and energy.

Niacet feed preservatives:
Calprona CP (calcium propionate)
Calprona SP (sodium propionate)

Performance Enhancers & Mineral Supplements

Niacet Calprona Performance Enhancers are used to increase the energy uptake (to prevent grass tetany and ketosis in cows) and to increase milk-fat content. Niacet Calprona Mineral Supplements are essential nutrients and are used to reduce stress (and stress related injuries) for example after regrouping or transport of pigs and poultry

Niacet Performance Enhancers & Mineral Supplements:
Calprona SP (sodium propionate)
Calprona CA (calcium acetate)

Petfoods are not only susceptible to spoilage by molds and harmless bacteria, but also to contamination by pathogenic bacteria like E. Coli or Listeria spp. The use of Niacet Petfood preservatives ensures maximum shelf life and food safety and safeguards petfood against recontamination. Niacet offers a broad range of innovative products, including clean label solutions.
