Overview of the global animal feed antioxidants market

Antioxidants, commonly referred to as “shelf-life extenders”, extend the shelf-life of feed nutrients in animal feed elements such as vitamins, fats, pigments, and flavoring agents. Thus, animal feed antioxidants serve to provide nutrient security to the animals dependent on the feed. Oxidization of animal feed leads to reduced performance and weakened health of animals. It is therefore essential to keep animal feed from getting oxidized, purpose that is aptly served by animal feed antioxidants.
