For food additive and feed additive. Vitamin B9, also called folic acid or folate, is one of eight water-soluble B vitamins. Folic acid is crucial for proper brain function and plays an important role in mental and emotional health. It aids in the production of DNA and RNA, the body's genetic material, and is especially important during periods of high growth, such as infancy, adolescence and pregnancy. Folic acid also works closely together with vitamin B12 to regulate the formation of red blood cells and to help iron function properly in the body.
4.Application on animals (feed grade / vitamin B9 folic acid)
Folic acid supplementation is used in animals at risk for folate deficiency, particularly animals with small-intestinal disease or malabsorption. Serum folate levels should be determined prior to therapy; in some instances serum folate levels actually are increased due to bacterial synthesis of folate within the small intestine. Cats with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency are more likely to have folate deficiency than dogs with pancreatic insufficiency because of the synthesis of folate by small intestinal bacteria in dogs.
