Vitanox can be applied in two ways.
In both cases, Vitanox has proven very effective as shown by the in vivo trial results below.
On top supplementation
Vitanox was added to the diet of piglets during four weeks after weaning, a stressful period for young piglets. Dietary addition of 1 kg/t Vitanox improved the performance results of weaned piglets. This resulted in a 5% better feed intake and a better growth of approximately 8%.
Partial vitamin E replacement
• Fattening pigs
50% of vitamin E was replaced by Vitanox resulting in a final vitamin E concentration of 40 ppm and 40 ppm vitamin E equivalents coming from Vitanox. Partial replacement of vitamin E by Vitanox resulted in equal growth, improved feed conversion ratio and lower mortality. Furthermore, blood antioxidant status and meat quality remained at the same high level.
80% of vitamin E was replaced by Vitanox resulting in a final vitamin E concentration of 10 ppm and 40 ppm vitamin E equivalents coming from Vitanox. Partial replacement resulted in synergistic effects on the technical performance of broilers slaughtered at day 39 of age.
