Kemin launched KemTRACE Chromium-OR for organic livestock and broiler

KemTRACE Chromium-OR is a highly bioavailable, organic-compliant source of chromium propionate that helps improve glucose utilisation and reduce the negative impacts of stress for increased cellular energy and function. This results in improved maintenance, reproduction, growth and immunity for swine, cattle and broilers.

The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) is an international non-profit organisation that provides an independent review of product inputs – including livestock feed ingredients – intended for use in organic production and processing. OMRI is recognised by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Programme (NOP) as a reputable third-party reviewer and is accredited under the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 17065 by the USDA Quality Assessment Division.

KemTRACE Chromium-OR has been reviewed by OMRI against the USDA NOP standards. After evaluation, OMRI determined that KemTRACE Chromium-OR is permitted for use as a mineral livestock feed ingredient in organic production and processing and is now considered OMRI Listed.

“We are thrilled to add KemTRACE Chromium-OR to our trace mineral portfolio,” said Kristi Krafka, vicep-president of Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance, Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health – North America. “Livestock and broiler production is continually evolving, and at Kemin, we aim to advance our product offerings alongside it. KemTRACE Chromium-OR is backed by all the research, safety and efficacy we have built up for decades with our flagship chromium propionate product, KemTRACE Chromium. This organic-compliant formulation puts a new tool in the toolbox for organic producers looking to improve the health and performance of their animals.”
