Kemin Industries has recently launched KemTRACE® Chromium-OR, an organic-compliant chromium propionate feed ingredient for use in swine, cattle, broiler and horse diets.
The product is a highly bioavailable, organic-compliant source of chromium propionate that helps improve glucose utilisation and reduce the negative impacts of stress for increased cellular energy and function. This results in improved maintenance, reproduction, growth and immunity for swine, cattle, broilers and horses.
KemTRACE Chromium-OR has been reviewed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) against the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) National Organic Program (NOP) standards.
After evaluation, OMRI determined that KemTRACE Chromium-OR is permitted for use as a mineral livestock feed ingredient in organic production and processing.
OMRI is an international non-profit organisation that provides an independent review of product inputs, including livestock feed ingredients, intended for use in organic production and processing. It is recognised by NOP as a reputable third-party reviewer and is accredited under the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 17065 by the USDA Quality Assessment Division.
"We are thrilled to add KemTRACE Chromium-OR to our trace mineral portfolio," said Kristi Krafka, vice president of regulatory affairs and quality assurance at Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health (North America). "Livestock and broiler production is continually evolving, and at Kemin, we aim to advance our product offerings alongside it. KemTRACE Chromium-OR is backed by all the research, safety and efficacy we've built up for decades with our flagship chromium propionate product, KemTRACE® Chromium. This organic-compliant formulation puts a new tool in the toolbox for organic producers looking to improve the health and performance of their animals."
As the world's largest producer of chromium propionate, Kemin has conducted more than 50 peer-reviewed chromium research trials to add further assurances regarding product safety, efficacy and traceability.
KemTRACE Chromium-OR is manufactured at Kemin in Des Moines, Iowa, the United States, and is sourced from US-based raw materials. The product is available in two concentrations: 0.04% for use in complete diets and 0.4% for use in a premix prior to inclusion in complete
