Adisseo publishes a handbook on liquid additive application in feed

Adisseo has presented a new handbook on liquid additives application in feed. Liquid additives and supplements, or liquid micro ingredients, are added at levels of between 0.1 to 5kg/metric tonne, depending on the product. The common stages for inclusion are with raw materials at reception or, in the majority of cases with feed, either in the mixing or post pelleting phases. The handbook provides an overview of additives that can be used in liquid form, when they can be added during the process, and the characteristics to factor in for the right application.
