Nutritionists often formulate diets with trace mineral levels in excess of the levels recommended by the National Research Council (NRC) to compensate for potential antagonists in feeds that can render trace minerals ineffective. However, feeding higher trace mineral levels can itself negatively affect utilization. Higher trace mineral cost and increasing concern over trace mineral excretion into the environment make this strategy even less attractive. Feeding KeyShure® and SoluKey™ can help overcome the effects of antagonists, thus supporting optimum performance and decreasing mineral excretion into the environment.
High Bioavailability – Chelation maximizes bioavailability, estabilishing a protective chemical bond between a mineral and an appropriate organic compound. It is here, at the molecular level, that Balchem’s technology makes the difference.
Excellect Quality – Balchem uses scientific and manufacturing expertise to maximize the bioavailability of chelated mineral in our products. We keep it simple by focusing on the endpoint – binding minerals to high-quality, plant-protein-derived amino acids.
Exceptional Value – As a major ingredient ingredient supplier, Balchem leverages its purchasing power and efficient manufacturing processes to provide no frills, value-based pricing for an extremely high-quality product. The result is the lowest cost per unit of organically bound (chelated) mineral in the industry.
