Des Moines, IA, United States, 2010/01/04 - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has permitted the use of KemTRACE® Chromium Propionate into breeding and lactating gilts and sows.
Kemin Industries is pleased to announce the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is now permitting the use of KemTRACE® Chromium Propionate into breeding and lactating gilts and sows in Canada.
”Kemin is pleased to receive this additional product registration in Canada for KemTRACE Chromium Propionate,” says Cody Swan, product manager for Kemin Agrifoods. “KemTRACE Chromium Propionate is designed to provide swine producers with a powerful tool to maximize the nutritional value of feed.”
KemTRACE Chromium Propionate is a safe, highly bioavailable, and patented organic chromium source. Chromium propionate is intended to improve average daily gain when fed continuously from weaning to finishing, and is also used as a chromium supplement for breeding and lactating gilts and sows.
KemTRACE Chromium Propionate is available for use in growing and finishing Duroc swine in Canada. In the United States, chromium has been shown to affect insulin sensitivity and as a result promote glucose uptake; KemTRACE Chromium Propionate has been permitted in all phases of U.S. swine since 2000. It is also currently the only chromium source available for use in cattle in the United States.
