35% Ascorbic Acid Activity
STAY-C Dry Mixture is a fine powder containing mono-, di and triphosphate esters of L-ascorbic acid in a suitable carrier. It provides a minimum of 35% of ascorbic acid by weight equivalent to 150 grams of ascorbic acid per kg of dry mixture.
STAY-C Dry Mixture is specially formulated for use as a stabilized source of vitamin C in feeds of all animal species. It is especially useful in feeds of aquacultural species, pets, guinea pigs and non-human primates.
The phosphate esters of vitamin C have L-ascorbate molar activity equivalent to L-ascorbic acid. Ester-
ification of the 2-carbon atom protects vitamin C from destruction by oxidation.
