ENDOX® – Dry Antioxidants to Preserve Feed Quality

ENDOX® Dry Antioxidants are formulated specifically for the treatment of finished feeds and premixes. Each ENDOX product is a combination of an inert carrier coated with a synergistic blend of synthetic antioxidants, metal chelators and surfactants, which adequately distribute to protect feed from fat oxidation, vitamin degradation and more.

Features and Benefits

  • Synergistic blend of synthetic antioxidants to absorb free radicals before they destroy fats and vitamins
  • Chelators to bind metal ions, which may otherwise promote free radical oxidation
  • Proprietary manufacturing process ensures all carrier molecules are coated with the active antioxidant mixture
  • Antioxidant blends specifically formulated for finished feeds and vitamin premixes
  • Customer Laboratory Services (CLS)-supported product line for helping customers evaluate fat quality

 

ENDOX Antioxidant Systems

Synthetic antioxidants like butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), butylated hydroxytoulene (BHT) and ethoxyquin (EQ) are commonly used to provide oxidative stability to fats, vitamins and other nutrients in finished feeds. Conventional antioxidant mixtures for feeds are often simple, dry mixtures containing crystals of the antioxidants and carriers. In contrast, ENDOX Dry Antioxidants are manufactured using a proprietary process where active antioxidants are applied to the surface of a dry carrier. This ensures nearly every particle is covered with an active mixture and allows for the homogenous distribution of the antioxidants throughout the feed or premix. ENDOX products contain research-backed blends of antioxidants specifically developed by Kemin scientists for protection of finished feeds or vitamin/trace mineral (VTM) premixes.

ENDOX® Dry Antioxidants

 

Oxidation reduces the nutritional value of energy-rich lipids and increases fat-soluble vitamin susceptibility to destruction, thereby leaving animals vulnerable to disease and performance losses. ENDOX Dry Antioxidants are complete antioxidant systems formulated specifically to stabilize complete feeds and protect fat-soluble vitamins from degradation in concentrated mineral premixes.

Impact of Lipid Peroxidation and Antioxidants on Nursery Pig Performance and Health

 

To increase energy density and improve feed efficiency, supplemental fats and oils (lipids) are commonly added to swine diets. Corn oil and other highly unsaturated lipids are susceptible to oxidation, adversely impacting lipid quality through the formation of free radicals, hydroperoxides and other oxidation products.

Dealing with Long-Term Storage of Bagged Animal Feed

 

The most common reason for customers to return bagged feed is mold. Even when care is taken to ensure all ingredients are dry and only the highest quality raw materials sourced, mold can become an issue once the feed is bagged and shipped. The three most common reasons for mold growth are heat, moisture and time — and bags are the perfect environment for all three.

5 Tips to Prevent Vitamin Loss in Feed

 

Not only are vitamins involved in over 30 metabolic reactions, but they also play key roles in managing internal cellular stress, immunological defense systems and the overall health of animals. So, although they make up less than 1 percent of the diet, vitamins are vital ingredients for optimal growth, health, reproduction and performance of livestock and poultry.
