dry and liquid are effective blends of synergistic antioxidants for premixes and feeds.
Oxistat Liquid contains Butylated hydroxyanisole, Ethoxyquin and citric acid esters. It is formulated to control all stages of autoxidation of fats, oils, vitamins and pigments.
Autoxidation causes vitamins lose their activity, pigments their colour, whilst fats and oils develop an undesirable flavour and odour known as rancidity, which may lead to palatability problems.
The first stage of autoxidation involves the generation of free radicals, and this is catalysed by the presence of metal ions, but can be slowed by the use of chelating agents such as citric acid.
Free radicals interact with oxygen in the air to form peroxides, which are further oxidised to stable end products that impart unattractive flavours and odours to the feed, which will then be rancid.
For long-term protection spray Oxistat Liquid into the feed at 250 ml/Te. For high fat feeds or raw materials increase the rate to 500 ml/Te with 1000 ml/Te used in liquid fats and oils.
Oxistat Liquid, in common with other antioxidant products, will not reduce rancidity if it is already present. Results are dependent on the purchase of non-rancid raw materials and general cleanliness/hygiene of manufacturing plant.
