Alpha-Omega-9 is composed of oleic sunflower seeds, ground and protected from oxidation.
Quite rich source of vegetable oil (±45%), particularly rich in oleic acid (80% of the oil). These omega-9 unsaturated fatty acids (C18-1n9) are recommended to improve health (refer to the reputation of olive oil). Specifically rich in alpha-tocopherols (309mg/kg), a high available biological source of vitamin E, acting as a natural antioxidant (improves better color retention).
Fatty acids comparison from various vegetable oils
|Acid compound||Colza oil||Soya oil||Classic sunflower oil||Oleic sunflower oil||Olive oil||Linseed oil|
|Palmitic acid||C16 :0||4||13||7||7||14||6|
|Stearic acid||C18 :0||2||4||5||5||3||3.4|
|Palmitoleic acid||C16 :1||0.2||1|
- Bovines for growth: 2 to 4% of DM in the formula. Milk cows and fattening bovines: 5% on DM in the formula. (Compared to the polyunsaturated fatty acids, the monounsaturated fatty acids show a better resistance to the hydrogenation in the rumen. The incorporation of unsaturated fat can reduce saturated fat in order to obtain a well marbled meat or spreadable butter.)
- Swine: 2 to 4% in fattening pigs and sows. Very good tolerance in the meat quality.
- Horse feed: 2 to 5%, brings an important fibre income and a low starch level.
- Pet food: 2 to 5%, alpha-tocopherols promote the antioxidants production and reduce free radicals in the body.
- Poultry: specifically for laying hens, to improve the quality (type of fat) and the size of eggs.
