Vitamin A Palmitate

Vitamin A (retinol) is an essential nutrient for animals

Vitamins are substances which are necessary for maintaining all body functions (growth, health, fertility, performance). As a rule, the animal body cannot synthesize these natural biologically active substances itself, which is why they must be supplied with the feed.

Vitamin A Palmitate is the liquid form of Lutavit® A.

BASF offers vitamin A-Palmitate 1.7 Mio IU/G and vitamin A-Palmitate 1.6 Mio IU/G. Our portfolio includes vitamin A-Propionate 2.5 Mio IU/G as well.

Our Solutions

Feed Conversion & Animal Performance

Improved feed conversion and faster weight gain are achieved with increased nutrient utilization of feed. With high biological effectiveness, better performance of animals is achieved. In addition to that, optimized nutrient utilization can result in a reduction of nutrients excreted in the manure. This embraces the concept of “responsible farming,” in accordance with recent increases in public eco-awareness.

Vitality & Wellbeing

BASF has decades of experience in the feed sector, in development, production and application. We place particular importance on delivering the highest quality for the benefit of humans and animals alike.
