Salt selection

All salts are not equally appropriate for inclusion in premixes. Avitech adds a Nutritionist’s Perspective while selecting salts and the salt selection process strictly meets the below criteria

Aspect Key Considerations Avitech’s Policy
Safety Heavy metals, toxic metabolites, antibiotics Regular evaluation of heavy metals, separate lines for medicated / non-medicated premixes.
Bio-availability Generally sulphate salts preferable, lump formation (agglomeration) risks Preference to sulphatesalts. Free flowing premix guaranteed
Bulk Density Of carrier & active components must together form a group Specially formulated carrier and careful selection of trace minerals to mix homogenously
Particle Size Must be within parameters to prevent segregation Processing required to meet size considerations
Economy Price-benefit optimization Bias toward nutrition requirement, whilst keeping economy in mind

Avitech’s TM premixes are available as standard formulations for Aqua, Dairy and Poultry sector or they could be customized to client specifications.

Inclusion will vary depending on the formulation and the type of raw materials used
