Nor-Guard® OV11 Concentrate is one of Nor-Add, Nor-Feed‘s preferred products for enhancing animal performance by utilising natural antioxidants.
Nor-Guard® OV11 Concentrate is a premixture consisting of 100 % natural flavouring compounds from olives and grapes. The product is specially developed for inclusion in animal feeds, as it increases the palatability of the feed and thereby the appetite and feed intake of the animals. This may contribute to an increased weight gain.
Nor-Guard® OV11 Concentrate‘s content of both fat- and water-soluble antioxidants provides the product with a strong antioxidative capacity. Its ORAC-value is 5100 µmol TE/g. This compares favourably with the ORAC-value of a typical Vitamin E 50% adsorbate, which – when the product is formulated on the basis of dl-alfa-tocopherol – is below 585 µmol TE/g. According to literature, antioxidants have proven beneficial to both humans and animals (Rice-Evans et.al. 1997, Albarracin et al, 2012).
Nor-Guard® OV11 Concentrate is a highly concentrated product, and therefore only low dosage rates are required. If a similar product with better mixing properties for e.g. home mixers is needed, please see Nor-Guard® OV11D Premix
