SELDOX® is a powder antioxidant used in compound feed, raw materials and premixes.
Fatty acids that are exposed to air will form radicals. When these fatty acid radicals react to oxygen, hyper oxides are formed. These hyper oxides are primary oxidation products. These primary oxidation products could react to new radicals and could form secondary oxidation products. Secondary oxidation products (aldehydes and ketones) are responsible for the rancidity of fat in food. SELDOX® - HMQ DRY prevents the formation of oxidation by-products which are harmful to man and animal and may cause unacceptable deflections in taste.
The mineral ions in feed, especially iron and copper, are responsible for the acceleration of the process of oxidation. SELDOX® - HMQ DRY eliminates these metal ions by chelating in order to prevent their pro-oxidative effect. SELDOX® - HMQ DRY is extremely useful to incorporate at high levels in premixes for the feed production.
Advantages of SELDOX® - HMQ DRY are:
Excellent mixing qualities.
Maximized contact-surface between the active ingredients and the treated material.
Compatibility with all ingredients in animal feeds.
Contains less active ingredients compared to SELDOX® - M DRY.
Price advantage compared to SELDOX® - M DRY.
