Animal feed producers all over the world try to achieve better nutrient utilization and animal performance by optimal use of resources. Moisture retention in feed is an important indicator associated with feed weight variation which has great economic significance in today’s competitive environment. The addition of RETENTIO ensures that the water is evenly distributed throughout the feed material and does not remain only on the surface of the particles. For such feed millers, RETENTIO is an eﬀective option to improve the moisture retention in the ﬁnished feed.
Mechanism of Action
RETENTIO is an eﬀective option to improve the moisture retention in the pelleted feed. It reduces the surface tension of water, allowing better penetration and improved distribution in the feed. The addition of RETENTIO ensures that the water is evenly distributed throughout the feed material and does not remain only on the surface of the particles. The activated propionates in RETENTIO, have synergistic mould inhibiting properties which further assures long-lasting antifungal eﬀects. It retains the feed moisture over the period of its storage, transport, and maintains the pellet quality of the feed.
Benefits of Retentio
– Increases moisture retention and decreases process loss
– Improves throughput per hour
– Reduces power consumption
– Ensures efficient utilization of steam
– Efficient cooling of the product before bagging
– Maintains pellet quality/integrity
– Lowers dusting problems
– RETENTIO @ 100 g – 500 g in all types of pellet feeds.
(RETENTIO is to be added in 2 % of water / MT and then transferred to the feed mixture as per the process requirements.)
