Pet foods are formulated to provide pets with a complete and balanced diet, full of flavour and taking care of all the nutritional needs of pets. Bitek supplies a range of antioxidants, salmonella inhibitors and mould inhibitors which are safe for use in pet food and protect the pet food from oxidation and microbial growth which can result in food refusal, off flavours and ill health.

BANOX

Multistage antioxidant specially designed for the prevention of autoxidation in all animal feeds and feed ingredients. Banox is a synergistic blend of antioxidants and chelating agents which stabilises and extends the shelf life of fats and vitamins, maintaining nutritional value and preventing feed refusal. The biological chelating agent used still maintains the availability of the micro-elements to livestock. Suited to animal feed premixes.

BHA (Food Grade)

Butylated Hydroxy Anisole (BHA) is a waxy, solid antioxidant food additive, E number 320. It is an effective antioxidant for animal fats and for vegetable fats in fried and baked foods where heating is involved. It is also effective as an antioxidant in margarine, fish oils, vitamins, flavours and essential oils.

BHT (Food Grade)

Butylated Hydroxy Toluene (BHT) is a fine crystal antioxidant food additive, E number 321. It is a particularly good antioxidant for stabilising meat, fish and bone meals and may also be used for stabilising fish oils, vitamins and essential oils.

Emulsi Plus

A powder emulsifier for better absorption and utilisation of fats and oils in animal feed. Emulsi-Plus is a combination of emulsifying agents selected for their HLB values and suitability for aiding the breakdown of both vegetable and animal fats in the gut of the animal into smaller micelles required for absorption by the body. Better digestion and utilisation of fats can compensate for a reduction of energy in the diet, lowering feed costs while maintaining growth performance.

MYCOBAN

Controlled release mould inhibitor specially designed for protection against moulds and yeasts in pet food, animal feed and raw materials including whole grains. A blend of buffered and free acids provides both persistent long-term protection and an initial rapid, effective kill. Carefully selected acids provide protection against all yeasts, moulds and spores. Mycoban has been formulated so as it is safe to handle, non-toxic to operators and non-corrosive to mill machinery.

Oxiban

Multistage antioxidant specially designed for the prevention of autoxidation in all animal feeds and feed ingredients. Oxiban is a synergistic blend of antioxidants and chelating agents which stabilises and extends the shelf life of fats and vitamins, maintaining nutritional value and preventing feed refusal. The biological chelating agent used still maintains the availability of the micro-elements to livestock. Used in export feeds or where a long shelf life is required and in animal tallows and oils.

Oxinat

Natural antioxidant specially designed for the prevention of autoxidation in all food, pet food and pet food ingredients. Oxinat is a blend of natural ingredients with strong antioxidant and chelating properties, which stabilises and extends the shelf life of fats and vitamins. Many food and pet food products are moving away from synthetic antioxidants towards the use of natural antioxidants alternatives.

Oxipet

Synergistic antioxidant blend which does not contain ethoxyquin specially designed for the prevention of autoxidation in all pet foods and pet food ingredients. Oxipet also contains a chelating agent which stabilises and extends the shelf life of fats and vitamins, maintaining nutritional value and preventing food refusal. The biological chelating agent used still maintains the availability of the micro-elements to the pets.

TBHQ (Food Grade)

tert-Butylhydroquinone (TBHQ) is a white crystalline powder antioxidant food additive, E number 319. It is an excellent antioxidant for vegetable oils and can also be used in animal fats. It is also suitable for protecting crude vegetable oils during storage.

TOXIBIND

Powerful and irreversible binder of mycotoxins with mould inhibition to prevent further mycotoxin formation. Toxibind contains activated aluminosilicate selected for its high surface area, binding ability and sorptive capacity and organic acids which will aid in preventing any further mould growth and mycotoxin formation during finished feed storage.

Toxibind Plus

Broad spectrum and irreversible mycotoxin binder which provides protection from a wide variety of mycotoxins encountered in animal feed. Toxibind Plus is particularly effective in adsorbing DON and Fumonisin amongst other mycotoxins. Phytogenics have also been added to the product to provide relief from the ill effects of mycotoxins by bolstering the immune and liver systems
