A premium source of bioavailable selenium
It is registered and authorized in the European Union
ALKOSELR397 is a specific inactivated whole cell yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae NCYC R397) product containing elevated levels of organic selenium (min. 98%).
It is registered and authorized in the European Union as a nutritional feed additive for all animal species (EC 3b8.11). It contains more than 98% of selenium in an organic form (this means the element ‘selenium’ is metabolized by the yeast and part of the amino acids and proteins).
Due to its high bioavailability, ALKOSELR397 optimizes the animals’ selenium status, which helps realize their full growth and production potential. The product quality and consistency of ALKOSELR397 guarantees animal performance, which will, in turn, result in increased profitability.
The selenium yeast is grown on a specific fermentation medium with measured amounts of inorganic selenium (sodium selenite). The specific Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain (NCYC R397) used in ALKOSELR397 production incorporates inorganic selenium and converts it into organic selenium (incorporated into amino acids notably as selenomethionine and other seleno compounds such as selenocysteine). The strain has been specifically selected to ensure optimal conversion of the inorganic selenium into organic selenium.
