Chemical Family: Carotenoids
Rovimix® β-Carotene is best known as the orange-red pigment found in carrots. But the truth is, it’s much more than just a pretty color! With over 50 years of experience, we’ve learned to use it to improve animal performance. β-Carotene is an essential nutrient for all farmed stock. As it is only found in plants and cannot be synthesized by livestock, animals’ requirements of this nutrient must be fulfilled by their diet. The natural β-carotene content of forages in animal diets varies, and supplementation is the proven way to make sure that diets consistently supply sufficient β-carotene.
Chemical Family: Vitamin C
ROVIMIX® STAY-C®35 beige is a spray-dried powder consisting of a stabilized (phosphorylated) Na/Ca salt of L-ascorbic acid. Esterification of ascorbic acid at position 2 protects vitamin C from destruction by oxidation. It contains primarily the monophosphate ester of L-ascorbic acid, with very small quantities of diphosphate ester and traces of triphosphate ester. The L-ascorbate molar activity of the phosphorylated esters of vitamin C is equivalent to L-ascorbic acid.
Chemical Family: Vitamin E
ROVIMIX® E 50 SD is a free-flowing, brownish, spray-dried powder consisting of dl-tocopheryl acetate finely dispersed in a matrix of lignosulfonate, and coated with small amounts of silicon dioxide. Suitable for many species, ROVIMIX® E50 contains the highly bioavailable and effective form of vitamin E. It meets animal requirements in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
