CALFEED HiSol is especially designed to be added to the feed of young animals, particularly piglets. With a sweet and sour taste that young animals enjoy, it enables increased feed intake: The high lactate content helps with acidification of the stomach and the highly soluble calcium enables direct uptake of the calcium in the blood.
In particular, the lactate in calcium lactate is a nutrient for the gastro intestinal wall. The calcium is easily absorbed and available for use in the body (calcium lactate easily dissociates, releasing free calcium ions for absorption in the gastro intestinal tract).
The calcium in calcium lactate has the same bioavailability as that found in milk (Levenson et. Al). CALFEED HiSol comes in a cream-colored, non-hygroscopic powder.
