Therefore, extend the shelf life of animal feed.

Sodium Propionate – volatile small, high temperature, animal adaptation and suitable for a variety of animal feed use. It is more effective in an acidic environment. Feeds and feed ingredients are generally slightly acidic (pH 6.0 or less), which helps in this regard.
