ALKOSEL is a specific inactivated whole cell yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) product containing elevated levels of organic selenium (min. 98%). It contains more than 98% of selenium in an organic form (this means the element ‘selenium’ is metabolised by the yeast and part of the amino acids and proteins). Due to its high bioavailability, ALKOSEL optimizes the animals’ selenium status, which helps realize their full growth and production potential. The product quality and consistency of ALKOSEL guarantees animal performance, which will, in turn, result in increased profitability.

The selenium yeast is grown on a specific fermentation medium with measured amounts of inorganic selenium (sodium selenite). The specific Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain used in ALKOSEL production incorporates inorganic selenium and converts it into organic selenium (incorporated into amino acids notably as selenomethionine and other seleno compounds such as selenocysteine). The strain has been specifically selected to ensure optimal conversion of the inorganic selenium into organic selenium.
ALKOSEL has been formulated to ensure optimal flow during industrial processes and homogenous repartition into premixes. ALKOSEL has to be mixed into feed via a premix.
ALKOSEL is compatible with most ingredients and additives used in the manufacture of feedstuffs.
ALKOSEL is available in two formulations:
- ALKOSEL 2000: containing > 2,000 total Se (>98% organic Se)
- ALKOSEL 3000: containing > 3,000 total Se (>98% organic Se)
