L-tryptophan 98 % for feed is a preparation obtained by fermentation of natural raw materials. It contains at least 98 % of the sinistrorotatory isomer of tryptophan - L-tryptophan amino acid, at least 99 % of dry matter, and less than 1 % of moisture. Appearance
White to pale yellow powder, poorly soluble in water (1.136 g per 100 g of water). Biological effects
Tryptophan is a heterocyclic amino acid which is often found in animal diets on the verge of insufficiency due to the fact that some feed ingredients (corn, etc.) contain it in little amount.
L-tryptophan 98 % for feed is recommended for use as a source of tryptophan in all types of mixed feed. Supplementing feed and feed mixtures with tryptophan helps to normalize the synthesis of serotonin, nicotinic acid, hemoglobin, eye pigment and other compounds necessary for the functioning of the body. Tryptophan and its derivatives affect regulation of endocrine status, reproductive functions, hematopoiesis.
Due to its high flowability, this preparation is easily mixed with other powdered microadditives for the production of mixed feed, premixes and vitamin-and-mineral complexes.
Store in a closed container in a dry place, at the temperature below 25 °C.
