Kemira ChemSolutions launches sodium benzoate feed additive

Press Release


Kemira ChemSolutions has made their sodium benzoate feed additive available on the market under the brand name Proturalâ„¢, after obtaining the EU registration on May 20.


Proturalâ„¢ acts as a performance enhancer in weaned piglet feed, and animal trials have consistently shown a positive effect on piglets' feed intake, daily growth and improved animal performance.


According to Kemira, Proturalâ„¢ is excreted as hippuric acid and not accumulated in the animal's tissue, similar to benzoic acid.


The product is also highly soluble, easy to handle, does not irritate skin and eyes, and has no pungent odour.
