Our Sodium Sulfate in animal feed: AdiSodium™
Beneficial by nature: Profitability, sustainability: the perfect balance
AdiSodiumTM is a feed material without chloride containing 32% sodium and 22% sulphur, intended for monogastrics and ruminants.
AdiSodiumTM helps monogastrics meet their needs in sodium for optimised performance. This product is a valuable source of sodium, with additional benefits in cost savings and for the environment, compared to other sodium sources without chloride, such as sodium bicarbonate.
AdiSodiumTM is also advantageous for ruminants by providing both sulphur—in an easily assimilated form—and sodium, which is needed for saliva production and rumen pH control.
Benefits for monogastrics
AdiSodiumTM is a cost-effective source of sodium without chloride. With a sodium content of 32%, which is higher than some other sodium sources without chloride, AdiSodiumTM requires less inclusion in feed and less space in formula.
As such, using AdiSodiumTM, reduces the cost of sodium in formula by at least 30%.
AdiSodiumTM efficiently increases the Dietary Electrolyte Balance (DEB) value in monogastrics’ diets.
This leads to positive effects on the animals’ performance (weight gain, feed conversion ratio), especially under heat stress conditions.
There is also a lower buffering effect compared to sodium bicarbonate or sodium carbonate, which is more favourable to feed acidifying strategies.
No adverse effects, like poor litter quality, laxative effects, mortality or foot pad dermatitis, have been observed at a practical incorporation rate, as proven by several trials.
A short report comparing AdiSodiumTM and sodium bicarbonate on broilers performances, water and feed consumption, litter and faeces aspect and composition is available. Access the report with a click here.
AdiSodiumTM reduces ammonia emissions at the farm level. A reduction of 75% was measured in comparison to sodium bicarbonate, during the trial Mercier et al. 2005. This leads to better air and litter quality, which benefits the well-being of animals and humans.
Benefits for ruminants
AdiSodiumTM has the advantage to cost-effectively provide both sulphur and sodium to ruminants.
Indeed, AdiSodiumTM is a source of sulphur that is easily assimilated by animals. It therefore improves the N:S balance in ruminants, resulting in an optimised ruminal amino-acid synthesis.
An additional advantage of AdiSodiumTM is that it is a safe product compared to the standard source of sulphur for ruminants: flower of sulphur, which requires specific safety procedures.
Sodium provided by AdiSodiumTM is also particularly required for ruminants for their saliva production, ensuring rumen buffering and preventing acidosis.
Certifications and practical uses of the product
AdiSodium™, like all other products in the Adisseo portfolio, is undergoing rigorous and constant industrial quality control. This product dedicated to feed is managed under FAMI-QS certification. AdiSodiumTM is also GMP+, which is an internationally-recognised certification focused on Quality Management (ISO 9001) and Risk Management (HACCP). Moreover, the entire Adisseo organisation is certified according to international management and system standards regarding safety, quality, the environment and food safety (ISO 14 001, OHSAS 18 001, etc.).
AdiSodiumTM can be easily handled during the feeding process with no effect of hygroscopic behaviour during practical use conditions. AdiSodiumTM is conveniently available in various packaging: bulk, big bags and paper bags.
Adisseo provides you with a quick, easy-to-use calculator to simulate your savings when switching to AdiSodium™ as a source of sodium without chloride, in your practical conditions.
- Source of sodium without chloride?Why a source of sodium without chloride? Many feed producers are still using NaCl as the sole source of sodium in their feed formulation, but an additional source of sodium without chloride has many advantages.
