New product provides copper and zinc to poultry

Two new highly bio-available, zero sulphur forms of organically bound copper and zinc are now available in the UK from Azelis Animal Nutrition.

Based on highly stable bis-glycinates of these two important trace elements for pigs and poultry, Plexomin Cu and Plexomin Zn from German feed additives producer Phytobiotics contain one atom of the respective mineral bound to two molecules of the amino acid glycine.

“These two innovative new organic trace element products are high purity chelates containing a minimum of 29% mineral. The highly stable chemical bond ensures that the bis-glycinates remain intact in the low pH of the stomach and are then actively absorbed in the small intestine through the amino acid transporters, making for highly efficient digestibility of copper and zinc,” said Colm McEvoy, mono-gastric specialist with Azelis Animal Nutrition.
