Citric acid solubility and alkaline ammonium citrate solubility
High quality feed phosphates are characterized by stable and accurate physical-chemical properties, high phosphorus solubility and a low content in undesirables substances. They contribute to reduce
the release of phosphorus and other elements in the environment, without compromising performance and health of animals.

Regulation (EC) No 999/2001, amended by Regulation (EU) No 56/2013 of January 16th 2013, applies to the production and placing on the market of live animals and products of animal origin. It provides
in its Annex IV the conditions of use of certain products of animal origin in animal feed.
Among these products of animal origin, can be found processed animal protein (PAP), blood products, gelatin derivatives, cartilage and dicalcium and tricalcium phosphate of animal origin.
Do not underestimate the value of inorganic phosphate!

A reduction of phosphorus (P) levels in feed increases the importance of having sure and sufficiently high digestibility coefficients of P. Phytase is, therefore, generally used in feed. However, high digestible mineral P sources are still important for the delivery of sufficient levels of digestible P to the animal.
