The Science

We Understand the Science Behind Chromium

What is KemTRACE Chromium?
KemTRACE Chromium is a highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium for inclusion into swine and cattle diets. The primary role of chromium in nutrient metabolism is to potentiate the action of insulin and improve glucose utilization in animals. KemTRACE Chromium is essential in helping swine, beefdairy cattle and broilers optimize energy use.

For nearly 20 years, KemTRACE Chromium has been successfully part of swine diets. In 2009, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) permitted KemTRACE Chromium in cattle diets. Today, KemTRACE Chromium is the only permitted source of chromium available in U.S. beef and dairy diets.

From university research to on-the-farm results, KemTRACE Chromium plays an important role in:

  • glucose uptake;
  • cellular energy;
  • production; and
  • profitability

Bioavailability Matters When Selecting Minerals

Higher bioavailability ensures more of the nutrient is available in a form the animal can use for optimal nutritional benefits.
