B.I.O.Key® Amino acid chelates
Our B.I.O.Key® trace minerals are bound to amino acids from hydrolysed soy protein and are available in the following product variants:
- B.I.O.Key® Zinc
- B.I.O.Key® Copper
- B.I.O.Key® Iron
- B.I.O.Key® Manganese
- High bioavailability − scientifically proven!
- Safe trace mineral supply for a stable performance
- Lower environmental impact due to reduced trace mineral excretion
- Mode of action
The absorption of trace minerals in the small intestine can be impaired by undesirable interactions (antagonisms) with other feed components and minerals.
By the binding to the amino acids, the metal ion (Zn, Mn, Cu, Fe) is protected from being released in the low pH environment. Therefore the occurrence of antagonisms in the gastrointestinal tract is reduced.
This results in an excellent bioavailability of trace minerals from our B.I.O.Key® compared to inorganic sources.
