Adisseo obtains FDA approval on pure organic selenium feed additive


Adisseo announced March 11 that the Food & Drug Administration has approved the distribution of Selisseo, the first pure source of organic selenium in the U.S. market that provides selenium in the form of hydroxy-selenomethionine. The product is approved for use in chickens, turkeys and swine, the announcement said.

butanoic acid
According to Adisseo, the purity of the organoselenium-based product, which has been tested in numerous trials, has been shown to consistently deliver more bioavailable selenium to animals, with higher deposition in animal tissues. This provides animals with high antioxidant capabilities even in challenging conditions.

Selenium is an essential micronutrient and powerful antioxidant that plays a critical role in metabolism, reproductive health and immunity by fighting oxidative stress, Adisseo said.

“Hydroxy-selenomethionine is a remarkable new product that ushers in a new way of delivering selenium to production animals safely, effectively and efficiently," said Alissa Welsher, technical manager, Adisseo.

Adisseo's Selisseo® received a market authorization by the European Commission, in May 2013, for its use as feed additive in all animal species.
