Protection of Animal Feeds, Concentrates and Vitamin Premixes

Oxidative rancidity: an important feed quality issue.
Autoxidation is a typical example of chemical feed
degradation. Oxidative rancidity is a complex chemical
process that occurs in different phases (initiation,
auto-oxidation and termination).
Hydroperoxides are formed when oxygen and fatty acids combine in
the presence of a catalyst (such as free radicals from trace minerals
(Fe), temperature, light, enzymes, ...). Peroxides are reactive which
will result in a viscous circle of oxidation. In the final stage, volatile
compounds such as hydrocarbons, aldehydes and ketons are formed.
Both intermediate and final products of the oxidation process can be
considered as contaminants. As the final products from the oxidation
process are volatile components, they will have a negative effect on
palatability. Free radicals and peroxides will induce further oxidation
of the feed. Besides the fat fraction, also vitamins, pigments and
proteins will be destroyed. Free radicals and peroxides do not only
induce further oxidation of feed, but have also a negative impact
within the digestive tract. They are cytotoxic, responsible for cell
damages and disturbances of the beneficial micro-flora.
Premixes and concentrates are highly concentrated mixtures of often
expensive nutrients such as vitamins, pigments, trace minerals, amino
acids etc. These formulations contain highly aggressive substances
such as trace minerals and / or choline chloride which will induce the
induction phase of the oxidation reaction. Even in the absence of fat,
oxidation will result in the breakdown of vitamins, amino acids and
other essential nutrients.
Novinox® is a selective and powerful antioxidant combination.
The Novinox® concept is based on a limitation of the initiation
phase and an interruption of the viscous circle of oxidation.
The selection of the active ingredient depends of the type of material
to be protected (feed - concentrate - premix - raw material - fatty
acid profile); the application, and the required shelf life. The correct
and well-chosen combination of active principles results in synergistic
protection and higher efficiency. All these parameters are important
to design the most effective solution. Novinox® is available in dry
and liquid form in order to cover a wide application spectrum.
A dry, free flowing antioxidant compounded of Ethoxyquin, BHT,
Citric Acid on inert carrier material to increase surface contact.
