OganoTrace-P trace minerals are chelated to amino acids which makes them more bioavailable (improved digestibility and absorption) largely due to reduced loss due to antagonism in the gut with inorganic sources. 


OganoTrace-P Zinc is designed for use in feeds for livestock, food producing species and pets.


Trace minerals are chemically bound to a chelating agent or ligand, usually a mixture of amino acids or small peptides. This makes them more bioavailable and bioactive and provides the animal with a metabolic advantage that often results in an improved performance. They can therefore be included at much lower levels without compromising performance, thus minimizing nutrient excretion and environmental impact.

It is well known that trace minerals (Co, Cu, Fe, I, Mn, Mo, Se, and Zn, among others) are required for the normal functioning of basically all biochemical processes in the body. They are part of numerous enzymes and coordinate a great number of biological processes, and consequently they are essential to maintain animal health and productivity. Optimal nutrition, with adequate trace mineral levels, guarantees proper functions of the organism, among which the most important are structural, physiological, catalytic, and regulatory.

Trace minerals have very specific but often roles as outlined in the table below.


Zinc (Zn)
  • General growth and metabolism
  • Normal bone and cartilage development 
  • Maintaining integrity of skin and mucous membranes, hair and hooves
  • Maintaining a normal healthy coat
  • Wound healing

Deficiencies It is difficult to realize the impact of insufficient trace minerals, as symptoms of deficiency or mineral unbalances may not always be evident. However, a slight deficiency of trace minerals can cause a considerable reduction in performance and production. (López-Alonso, Vet Science 2012)
