Introduction

Nicotinic Acid, or Niacin, is a form of vitamin B3 and is an essential nutrient in both humans and animals. While it can be found in various forms of feeds, Niacin supplementation has shown to have great health benefits for both humans and animals such as improved carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism. Niacin supplementation has shown to increase milk production in dairy cows and improved response to heat stress during hot weathers.

Manufacturing Process

Nicotinic Acid can be synthesized chemically using tryptophan as the starting reagent.

Dairy Cows

Nicotinic Acid improves ketosis and leads to increased milk production in cows.

Poultry

Niacin deficiency in chicks are characterized by a loss of appetite and retarded growth rates. Niacin is thus supplemented to chicks at an early age to enhance growth.
