AcidSaver* is dedicated to nutritionists using Organic Acids in their formulation matrix. Rhodimet® AT88 being an organic acid, the tool helps them to adjust the Organic Acids they add when they use Rhodimet® AT88.
This tool is based on a method of acidity evaluation: ABC-4, which gives a precise value of acidity for a majority of additives currently used in feed formulation. With AcidSaver, you will be able to give an acid value to organic acids mixtures and get the acid equivalence with Rhodimet® AT88.
To use the tool, minimum information are required: used organic acids and fillers, purity of the product and inclusion percentage.The pKa1 is indicated by default.
