AMASIL™ NA

Amasil® NA is a buffered formic acid highest density organic acid available for use in animal feed. The partial buffering of formic acid with sodium hydroxide results in a product with most of the acidification potential of pure formic acid (Amasil 85) with a significantly reduced corrosivity.

CONTENT

61% Formic Acid
20.5% Sodium Formate

INGREDIENTS:

Feed Grade Sodium Formate

PACKAGING:

240 kg (528 lb) HDPE barrel
1200 kg (2640 lb) HDPE totes
Bulk

APPLICATION:

Added to complete swine and poultry feed at a rate of up to 1.2% for the purpose of feed acidification. This primarily reduces the number of coliform organisms in the feed and thus decreases the animals’ microbial intake via feed. Lowering the pH of feed reduces the buffering capacity, which facilitates the acidification of the feed in the birds’ crop/proventriculus. In the pig, the anion of the acid has a bactericidal and bacteriostatic effect in the digestive tract, reducing nutrient losses due to pathogen-induced digestive disorders and diarrhea.

FEEDING RECOMMENDATION:

Amasil™ NA has a metabolizable energy (ME) value of 1,039 kcal/kg (472.3 kcal/lb) and contains 7% dietary sodium.

performance.

BENEFITS:

Amasil™ NA is a carefully buffered formic acid mixture designed to eliminate the majority of the corrosive potential while maintaining high efficacy as a feed acidifier. Formic acid is the most potent organic acid for feed acidification by possessing a low pKa and a low molecular weight. The low pKa means that more of the acid exists in the dissociated state in aqueous solution. The low molecular weight means that more individual formic acid molecules are present per gram of product. Sodium buffering reduces the corrosivity of the product from more than 11x that of water, to less than 2x that of tap water. Together these features result in an organic acid with best-in-class performance.
LONG LASTING FEED HYGIENE – Formic acid consistently requires less acid to inhibit the growth of a wide range of bacteria, including salmonella, E. coli,Campylobacter, Clostridium, and Staphylococcus. Unlike point-in-time treatments such as pelleting and extrusion, formic acid consistently maintains a lower feed pH level, thus protecting against recontamination.
• PERFORMANCE – The acidic environment of the stomach is the pigs’ first line of defense against feed pathogens, and is also where protein digestion begins. Formic acid supports both of these functions, which can result in improved feed efficiency and growth.
• CONSUMER PREFERENCE – Consumers demand and expect a safe and affordable food supply. Amasil NA formic acid can be an important part of a producer’s biosecurity plan without the hassle of requiring a VFD.
