EFSA proposes reduction of maximum levels of zinc in feed

The introduction of the newly proposed total maximum contents would result in an overall reduction of zinc emissions from animal production of about 20%.

Tuesday 6 May 2014 (3 years 5 months 18 days ago)

EFSA has proposed a reduction of the maximum permitted content of zinc in feed for all animal species.

The newly proposed total maximum contents are: 150 mg Zn/kg complete feed for piglets, sows, rabbits, salmonids, cats and dogs; 120 mg Zn/kg complete feed for turkeys for fattening; 100 mg Zn/kg complete feed for all other species and categories. The use of phytase in feeding piglets, pigs for fattening and sows would allow a further reduction of the newly proposed total maximum contents by 30 % (from 150 to 110 mg Zn/kg feed for piglets and sows and from 100 to 70 mg Zn/kg feed for pigs for fattening).

The newly proposed total maximum contents ensure health, welfare and productivity of the target species and do not affect consumer safety.

The FEEDAP Panel expects that the introduction of the newly proposed total maximum contents, provided they are applied in feeding practices, would result in an overall reduction of zinc emissions from animal production of about 20 %.
