How CholiPEARL™ works
As an essential part of phosphatidylcholine, choline is a key compound for proper liver function. Phosphatidylcholine is the main phospholipid in ruminants, and it is critical for lipid absorption and transport.
During the transition period, dairy cows are under stress due to the negative energy balance. As a result, body fats are mobilised to supply enough energy to the body. The body fats need to be transformed into VLDL in the liver in order to be used as an energy source by the different body tissues.
Due to the role of choline in VLDL secretion the recommended period for rumen-protected choline application is during the transition period, 3 weeks before and up to 3 months after calving.
Kemin’s CholiPEARL™ uses the revolutionary spray freezing technology with unique handling and releasing characteristics. Thanks to this technology, each step of the production process is controlled allowing us to optimise the production, delivering a rumen-protected product with optimum rumen protection and high bioavailability.
