Adisseo Launches Innovative Antioxidant Organic Selenium

05 November 2014

FRANCE - Adisseo has launched Selisseo®, the innovative antioxidant organic selenium.

Selisseo is the best organic selenium product available on the market, which combines purity, reliability, stability, ease-of-use and 100 per cent efficiency. This seleno-hydroxy-methionine is issued from a unique and patented molecule and chemical process, converting OH-methionine (HMTBA) into seleno-OH-methionine (HMSeBA).

It is 100 per cent biologically active and efficient, as demonstrated by more than 25 studies achieved across various species: broilers, turkeys, layers, piglets, pigs and dairies. It increases selenium reserves as seleno-methionine in animal tissues but also enhances anti-oxidant seleno-proteins as demonstrated by the increased seleno-cysteine levels in metabolic tissues.

It has been shown to enhance selenium deposited in broiler tissues (Briens et al., 2013), piglet tissues (Jlali et al., 2014) as well in eggs (Jlali et al., 2014). It has also been shown to increase Se-Cys in metabolic tissues (Briens et al., 2014). Compared to seleno-yeasts, it supplies 100 per cent of efficient selenium.

As a well-defined molecule, Selisseo is easy to analyse by HPLC. Batch after batch, it delivers 100 per cent HMSeBA. Selisseo is stable in premixes and feeds, even after pelleting, heat treatment or extrusion. Selisseo is also easy-to-handle due to absence of fines and optimal particle size ensuring optimal mixability and improving safety in premix plants.

Selisseo obtained its EU approval for all species in June 2013, and the production site and chemical process have got the Feed Hygiene Approval (FHA) and the FAMI-QS certification by October.

Selisseo – the innovative antioxidant to help producers to develop a sustainable animal protein production.

Adisseo will be at EuroTier 2014 - Hall 16/D12.
