Safety and efficacy of benzoic acid as a technological feed additive for weaned piglets and pigs for fattening

Safety and efficacy of benzoic acid as a technological feed additive for weaned piglets and pigs for fattening

Published on: Wed, 16 Jan 2019 The additive under assessment is pure benzoic acid (> 99.8%), manufactured in the form of flakes. It is intended to be used as a technological feed additive (acidity regulator) in feedingstuffs for weaned piglets and pigs for fattening, with maximum contents of 5,000 and 10,000 mg/kg complete feed, respectively. Benzoic acid is safe for weaned piglets at 5,000 mg/kg complete feed, and at 10,000 mg/kg complete feed for pigs for fattening. The use of benzoic acid in feedings...
