Kemin Industries launches KemTRACE Chromium-OR for livestock & poultry
It helps in improving maintenance, reproduction, growth and immunity for swine, cattle, broilers and horses.
Kemin Industries, a global ingredient manufacturer, has recently launched KemTRACE® Chromium-OR – an organic-compliant chromium propionate feed ingredient for use in swine, cattle, broiler and horse diets.
KemTRACE Chromium-OR is a highly bioavailable, organic-compliant source of chromium propionate that helps improve glucose utilization and reduce the negative impacts of stress for increased cellular energy and function. This results in improved maintenance, reproduction, growth and immunity for swine, cattle, broilers and horses.
The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) is an international non-profit organization that provides an independent review of product inputs – including livestock feed ingredients – intended for use in organic production and processing. OMRI is recognized by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program (NOP) as a reputable third-party.
KemTRACE Chromium-OR has been reviewed by OMRI against the USDA NOP standards. After evaluation, OMRI determined that KemTRACE Chromium-OR is permitted for use as a mineral livestock feed ingredient in organic production and processing and is now considered OMRI Listed.
"We are thrilled to add KemTRACE Chromium-OR to our trace mineral portfolio," said Kristi Krafka, Vice President of Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance, Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health – North America. "Livestock and broiler production is continually evolving, and at Kemin, we aim to advance our product offerings alongside it. KemTRACE Chromium-OR is backed by all the research, safety and efficacy we've built up for decades with our flagship chromium propionate product, KemTRACE® Chromium. This organic-compliant formulation puts a new tool in the toolbox for organic producers looking to improve the health and performance of their animals."
KemTRACE Chromium-OR is manufactured at Kemin in Des Moines, Iowa, USA and is sourced from U.S.-based raw materials. Kemin's Des Moines manufacturing facility has the Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000, which is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) as a rigorous food safety management system, certified by approved third-party organizations.
