The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), a United States body tasked with approving the organic status of materials, has approved Alltech’s application for Sel-Plex 1000. This approval makes Sel-Plex 1000 the third product Alltech has listed with OMRI.
Since 1993, Sel-Plex 1000 has been a standard organic selenium source in animal diets and now due to the recent OMRI listing, Sel-Plex 1000 can be included in all organic feeding programmes across the United States and is approved for use in organic farming.
“Alltech is committed to registration and upholding regulatory values in markets around the world,” said Steve Traylor, Global Director of Regulatory Affairs. “We offer high quality, traceable solutions that can be incorporated in a variety of feeding programmes.”
“Selenium is an essential nutrient for both animals and people, and plays a critical role in metabolism, normal growth, reproductive health, and immunity,” stated Alltech president and founder, Dr. Pearse Lyons. “Because of its specific organic form, Sel-Plex selenium is better absorbed and retained by the animal.”
Sel-Plex is also the only FDA reviewed form of organic selenium, and is the first strain specific form of organic selenium to be EU approved for all species (Strain: Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-3060).
