Alkosel® 3000 is a specific inactivated whole cell yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) product containing the essential trace element selenium in its natural food form, L(+) selenomethionine.

It is produced by growing yeast in the presence of measured amounts of selenium. This specific yeast strain absorbs selenium and biochemically transforms it into the highly bioavailable L(+) selenomethionine and other seleno-proteins.

Selenomethionine is naturally found in edible plant protein but only at very low concentration. It is the most suitable form of selenium for animal nutrition

Safety and performance
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain used for the manufacture of ALKOSEL® has been selected for its unique properties in the bioconversion of selenium.

The most consistent source of bioavailable Selenium

  • Selenomethionine is recognized as more bioavailable than sodium selenite thanks to a unique mode of absorption. The high concentration of Semet in Alkosel guarantees improved Selenium absorption within the small intestine.
  • A quality control that exceeds the highest standards:
    • The total selenium content in ALKOSEL® 3000 is guaranteed to be 3000ppm±200 ppm and is almost totally in organic form (>98%).
    • Selenomethionine content in ALKOSEL® 3000 is routinely determined by HPLC and guaranteed on the certificate of analysis of each manufacturing batch.
      Internationally approved
      ALKOSEL® is regsitered by the CFIA and in Mexico.

Dairy cattle, Beef, and young ruminants

  • Improves Selenium status in blood and tissues and maintains the availability of selenium during periods of stress
  • Better natural defenses of the animal under situations leading to increased oxidative stress (heat stress, end of lactation period, sanitary stress, transportation, …)
  • Supports optimal nutrition and reproductive performance (fertility, cleansing)
  • Improves Selenium transfer from cow to calf
  • Improves Selenium content in animals’ end products (improved beef meat quality…)

Total selenium in feed material from all sources must not exceed 0.5 ppm. Follow label directions.
