BASF launches new vitamin A product line
BASF Animal Nutrition has globally launched Lutavit® A NXT, a new vitamin A product line in which ethoxyquin (EQ) is replaced by butylhydroxytoluene (BHT) as stabiliser.
Lutavit A NXT delivers "a long shelf-life, superior bioavailability and outstanding stability in premix and feed". These vitamin A formulations meet the latest Regulation (EC) No 2017/962, which requires the successive withdrawal of EQ as a feed additive.
"Our customers' needs drove these innovative vitamin A formulations. The result is a unique technology, which is patent-protected," said Christopher Rieker, Vice President BASF Animal Nutrition. "Extensive trials have shown that Lutavit A NXT delivers superior product performance, and that's what our customers around the globe rightly expect from us."
