ManGrin

ManGrin® is a new innovative source of Manganese recently added to the Animine portfolio of precision minerals.

 

ManGrin® is obtained by a unique process of manufacturing, it is a highly purified manganese source which makes it different from all other manganese sources available to the feed industry.

 

Some of the key attributes of ManGrin®  are:


  • High Concentration: ManGrin provides a min of 75% of Manganese when most other sources vary between less than 10% to 60% for standard Manganese oxide.
  • High Flowability: a key parameter is the reduction of airborne particles when handling a neurotoxic compound such as Manganese (*note for EU).
  • High Safety Standards: ManGrin heavy metal (As, Cd and Pb) content is far below other sources.
  • High Stability: the characteristics of ManGrin make it less reactive to its environment, limiting interactions with other compounds from the premix preparation to the digestive tract.
  • High Bioavailability: which when combined the above attributes guarantee sustainable high performance in animal production systems.

Manganese is the 5th most abundant element on earth and is an essential trace element. It is involved in skeleton and cartilage development, immunity, fertility and more. Tested in broilers, ManGrin® revealed significant higher liver content compared to other sources, a sign of higher bioavailability.

 

*Particular attention should be drawn to the flowability and the homogeneous particle size of ManGrin®. The low content in fines is especially important in the frame of the OEL (Operational Exposure Limit) defined by EU Directive (UE) 2017/164. In Europe, employers are required to monitor and to limit the exposure of workers regarding neurotoxic Manganese dust.
