Polifar Choline Chloride For Feed Additive
Choline chloride is an organic substance with the chemical formula C5H14ClNO, white hygroscopic crystals, odorless and fishy odor. Melting point 305 ℃. 10% aqueous solution pH5-6, unstable in lye. This product is easily soluble in water and ethanol, but insoluble in ether, petroleum ether, benzene and carbon disulfide. For the treatment of fatty liver and cirrhosis. It is also used as a livestock feed additive, which can stimulate the ovaries to produce more eggs, and increase the weight of livestock and fish. In addition, it is a highly effective nutritional supplement and fat-removing agent in food.
Why Use Choline Chloride
Choline chloride is used as a feed additive to stimulate the ovaries of animals to produce more eggs, improve farrowing rates, and increase the weight of livestock 
and fish.If there is not enough choline in animal feed, animals will develop choline deficiency. The following problems will occur:


Slow growth, reduced egg production, reduced size and reduced hatchability of eggs. Fat accumulation in liver and kidney, hepatic steatosis, detendinopathy, behavioral disorders, muscular dystrophy.


Slow growth, behavioral disturbances, neurological disorders, muscular dystrophy, poor fertility, excess fat storage in the liver.


Breathing disturbances, behavioral disturbances, loss of appetite, slowed growth.


Slow growth, fatty liver, poor feeding efficiency, renal and intestinal bleeding.

Benefits Of Choline Chloride
  • Promote the recombination
    Promote the recombination of amino acids and improve the utilization of amino acids, especially the essential amino acid methionine in animals.
  • Enhance the physique
    Enhance the physique and resistance of livestock and poultry, and promote growth
  • Improve egg production rate
    Improve egg production rate of laying hens​​​​​​​
Choline Chloride Structure & Storage
The storage temperature of choline chloride solution should not be lower than -12℃ to avoid blocking the pipeline after crystallization.
Choline chloride powder should be stored in silos with dehumidification equipment to prevent the product from absorbing moisture. Choline chloride powder absorbs moisture and can cause the product to become wet and clumpy, leading to catheter blockage. Plant carrier-type choline chloride powder may be fermented after long-term moisture absorption.
Choline Chloride Manufacturing Process

Ethylene oxide method

It is derived from the reaction between trimethylamine and ethylene oxide.
The trimethylamine ethanol solution was added to the reaction pot, and ethylene oxide was introduced into it at about 30°C, and the reaction was stirred for 4 hours, and then neutralized with hydrochloric acid (controlling pH 6.5-7.0). The crude product yield can reach 98%. After decolorization with activated carbon and vacuum concentration, a 70% aqueous solution can be obtained. Add corncob flour, rice husk flour, bran or diatomaceous earth and other excipients to the aqueous solution to obtain 50% powder.

Chloroethanol method

Substitute ethylene oxide and hydrochloric acid with chloroethanol, and react with trimethylamine under the catalysis of a small amount of ethylene oxide or an alkaline substance: first add 100 parts of chloroethanol to the reaction kettle, add 130 parts of trimethylamine from the liquid surface, Simultaneously, 1.7 parts of ethylene oxide was introduced to initiate the reaction. After adding, it was kept at 32-38°C and stirred for 4h, the yield was 84% (calculated in chloroethanol). If catalyzed by alkaline substances (such as quaternary ammonium salts), the single-pass conversion rate can reach more than 97%.

September 29, 2022

Food preservatives are a type of food additives that prevent food spoilage due to the action of microorganisms and prolong the shelf life of food. Its anti-corrosion mechanism is mainly to reduce the water activity of the product, reduce the PH of the product, act on the specific structural parts of the microorganism, destroy the growth of the microorganism or the normal progress of the metabolic system, thereby inhibiting the growth of the microorganism and prolonging the shelf life of the product.

September 30, 2022

Vitamins are one of the important factors affecting the reproductive function of pigs, and pig diets need to contain a certain amount of various vitamins. They promote the synthesis and degradation of major nutrients, thereby controlling the body's metabolism. Vitamin deficiency will affect the synthesis of coenzymes, lead to metabolic disorders, various diseases in animals, and also affect the reproductive function of animals.

August 16, 2022

Vitamin C is a polyhydroxy compound with the chemical formula C6H8O6. The structure is similar to that of glucose, and the two adjacent enol hydroxyl groups at 2. and 3. Positions in the molecule are easily dissociated to release H, so that it has the property of an acid also known as L-ascorbic acid.

What is the importance of vitamin B2?
August 14, 2022

Vitamin B2 is one of the B vitamins, easily soluble in water and stable when heated in neutral or acidic solutions. It is part of the prosthetic group of yellow enzymes in the body (yellow enzymes play the role of hydrogen transfer in biological redox). If it is missing, it affects the biological oxidation of the body and causes metabolic problems. The lesions usually manifest themselves as inflammation of the mouth, eyes and external genitals, such as angular stomatitis, cheilitis, glossitis, conjunctivitis and scrotal inflammation, so this product can be used to prevent and treat the above diseases.
