A new technology has been approved for improving animal health and performance, Ceresco Nutrition, announced. Ceresco Nutrition, originally founded in 2012, said that its new product, Silica+, has been approved for use in organic livestock production in animal diets in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
Silicia+ is a highly pure silicon dioxide mineral, which is submitted to an electromagnetic treatment.
"[W]e are happy to announce that Silica+ has been approved for organic livestock production in Canada, USA and Europe by Group ECOCERT. With industry restrictions on the rise for such products as blood plasma, antibiotics, copper, zinc and many others, Silica+ has found its place in the new philosophy of safe and healthy feed additives for our animals and the environment. The Ceresco Nutrition Team is proud to play an increasingly important role in the new world of sustainability and food safety while continuing to optimize animal performance," according to the company.
