Molecular formula & Molecular weight: C10H12O5；212.21
Appearance: white to milky white crystalline granules
Spec: Comply with GB,USP, EP, BP
Usage: The vitamins, carotenoids, fatty acids, fish meal, meat meal, bone meal, blood meal, feather meal and other primary nutrients in feed, in the process of feed production, transportation and storage are easily affected by oxidation, therefore influence feed efficiency and palatability, even it will cause livestock poisoning, so must add antioxidants. Propyl gallte is one of the antioxidants approved by organization of FAO/WHO can add to the grease or oil-based food to prevent rancidity caused by contact with oxygen in the air. It can effectively inhibit fat oxidation, suitable for all kinds of livestock mix feed, high fat content of feed ingredients, animal feed and grease.
Propyl gallte has important application in animal healthcare, it can enhance the dissolution of cellulose protein ,blood clots and dilate blood vessels, it is the effective constituent of treat cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, viral disease, bacterial infection, gastric ulcer, viral hepatitis and other diseases.
It can used for edible grease, fried foods, biscuits and other products, its dosage can not exceed 0.01%,the dosage used for livestock mix feed suggest no more than 0.2 g/kg. Under normal circumstances, the dosage of propyl gallate is about 0.05 g/kg, which can achieve good antioxidant effect. Propyl gallate has stong anti-oxidation ability against grease,but the solubility is small in the grease. It is recommended to be used in combination with the synergistic agent citric acid or BHA and BHT,the antioxidant ability will be stronger. The amount of the compound use of BHA, BHT can not exceed 0.1 g/kg, propyl gallate can not exceed 0.05 g/kg.
Storage: Sealed container, in dark place, no contact with metals.
