Functions and Applications

Niacin is an indispensable substance for animal growth and development. Niacin in cereal feeds mainly exists in a bound form, which is difficult for animals to absorb. Therefore, synthetic niacin needs to be artificially added to the feed. Adding an appropriate amount of niacin to the feed, feeding piglets (chickens) can make them rapidly gain weight. Feeding niacin feed to laying hens can improve the egg production rate, and the eggs also contain a certain amount of niacin, and the nutritional value is improved.>
