Betaine anhydrous exists either as white crystals or a crystalline powder. It is very hygroscopic, so anti-caking agent is needed in the manufacturing process. As a new fine chemical, betaine anhydrous is widely used in fields of food, medicine, household chemicals, printing and dyeing, chemical industry and so on. With high efficiency and best quality, our betaine anhydrous as food additive provides lots of nutrition needed in animals' growing. It has good performance in cultivating domestic animals, poultry, aquatic lives, etc.
Added in the fodder, our betaine anhydrous helps to increase livestocks' muscle mass or the amount of usable meat. It can also decrease the amount of adipose tissue in pigs. As an osmolyte, betaine protects cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress. As a methyl donor, betaine participates in the methionine cycle-primarily. Betaine can protect internal organs, improve vascular risk factors, and enhance performance. It is also used to relieve the osmotic pressure on salmons' cells when workers transfer the fish from freshwater to saltwater. It provides enhanced stability for other micronutrients such as vitamins A and B and other nutrients in the premix.
To ensure best activity, use the betaine anhydrous in two years. Meanwhile, keep the product from heat, fire, incompatibles such as alkalis and moisture, and place it in a cool, well-ventilated place, so as to assure constant performance.
