Beta-carotene biomass ЂVitatonї is a complex substance produced through the microbiologic synthesis using a strain of Blakeslea trispora fungus. The substance is a dry powder of orange colour, containing 5-7 % of beta-carotene. Besides beta-carotene, ЂVitatonї also contains vitamins of B group, vitamin E, essential amino and fatty acids. (Beta-carotene biomass ЂVitatonї)
One of the applications of beta-carotene biomass is in feeding animals and poultry. Beta-carotene biomass УVitatonФ can replace the Lucerne flour in compound feeds, thus 3 times decreasing energy consumption for the vegetable raw materials production. Another advantage of beta-carotene biomass УVitatonФ use in livestock farming is its stable availability throughout the year.
Recommendation for adding УVitatonФ to the feed
Beta-carotene biomass ЂVitatonї:
Х Increases the biological value of feeds for livestock and poultry as well as the nonspecific resistance
Х Removes radionuclides and is a antioxidant
Х Restores epithelial sells of bowels
Х Is effective for musculoskeletal system
Х Improves digestion and provides immunity development
Х Regulates the processes of bloodformation
Х Increases the quality of meat, fur, eggs, roe
Х Decreases the quantity of feed per 1 piece of a product
Х Increases the carotenoids content in yolk, increases egg-production
Х Decreases loss of cattle and poultry
Х Is a natural colourant, improving the colour of yolk and meat
