Zincoret® S: low environmental impact microencapsulated zinc oxide for pigs.
Zinc oxide is causing pollution in soil and toxicity in pigs at high levels. EU recommends a reduction in the use of zinc oxide in the feed.
Zincoret® S is a sustainable alternative to zinc oxide in weaning piglets diet.
Zincoret® S is a microencapsulated source of zinc oxide that may be included in piglet diets at low dosages. Thanks to Vetagro technology zinc oxide by-passes the stomach without reacting with hydrochloric acid, and it is slowly released in the intestine where it remains active.
Zincoret® S allows a lower excretion of zinc in faeces and in the environment.
Zincoret® S allows the slow release of zinc oxide in the small intestine.
Zinc oxide may induce a reduction in the permeability of the intestinal mucosa throughout a reduced expression of TNFa and the consequent strengthening of the tight-junctions. This ameliorates the intestinal integrity of the piglets at weaning.
