BASF glycinates provide trace elements in an organic form that is highly soluble and guaranteed to meet animal requirements.

Zinc is important for collagen synthesis and keratin formation in hoof, skin, wool, hair and feathers. It also has a barrier function, protects against oxidation, and has a regulatory role in both cell turnover and repair of oxidative damage. Zinc is not only responsible for the reproductive and immune system, but also for proper growth according to the animals’ full genetic potential. Additionally, zinc is a co-factor in more than 200 enzymes.

BASF glycinates can be dissolved directly in water and do not need to be dissolved beforehand. Since they have less potential to build complexes with phytate, a higher absorption rate by gut mucosa and even greater efficiency from supplemented phytase can be expected.
