WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF OLPHEEL ANTI-OX?
Incorporating Olpheel Anti-Ox to your protocol can contribute to :
- Improve aquafeed life span
- Improve pigmentation strategy
- Support growth and performance
- Support antioxidant status and strengthen the animals
Antioxidants are widespread materials in aquafeed production. They are very useful to extend the life span of raw materials and feed from oxidation and quality degradation. In particular for lipidic fractions like fish and canola oil, as well as pigments like astaxanthin. Astaxanthin and other carotenoids from the family, mostly used as a pigment to color salmonids and shrimp fillets, are also very strong antioxidants, and thus very reactive molecules to the presence of free radicals and oxygen. While acting as antioxidants, they lose their pigmentation potential by losing an electron.
Antioxidants are also added to the diets to prevent and limit oxidative stress in the animals, which can occur in steps where a high metabolic activity is required (environmental changes, high feed consumption, stress…). Oxidative stress consequences are lower filet quality, lower pigmentation, slowed growth and weaker animals.
In order to offer sustainable solutions for the future, we have designed Olpheel Anti-Ox , antioxidant from a 100% natural origin, composed of grape seed and skin extracts, to improve aquafeed life span, pigmentation strategy, and support the animal’s antioxidant status during oxidative stress periods with high metabolism.
