Oxidative damage is often only noticeable once the damage is very severe. This makes detection difficult without laboratory analysis.
However, even at relatively low levels, oxidative damage can negatively impact production efficiency. Feed absorption is impaired and overall nutritional value is dramatically reduced. It is, therefore, highly likely that oxidation is often responsible for unexplained performance variability.
At Kemin, we know that antioxidants are key to solving oxidation challenges. They ensure optimal performance and carcass quality and preserve the nutritional composition of diets. All these factors are crucial in professional and sustainable animal production systems.
