FDA approves selenium cattle-feed additive

Agriculture.com Staff 07/25/2007 @ 9:56am

Alltech's organic selenium, Sel-Plex, recently received free choice allowance in livestock diets from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Selenium plays an important role in beef cattle diets. This nutrient supports a healthy reproductive system, meat quality, and shelf life for beef products.

Sel-Plex is an organic form of selenium yeast, as it is presented in the same forms that are naturally present in plants. Organic selenium is more digestible than inorganic forms and better retained, which lets the animal build nutrient reserves against periods of increased demand without risking toxicity.

Sel-Plex also received authorization as a nutritional feed additive for use in all species diets, from the European Union (EU) under EU regulation 1750/2006.
