Ingredients of the highest quality ensure consistent product characteristics of our diets and secure excellent digestibility and appetizing factors.
The safety and smooth running of a scientific research work is key to its success. When two closely related feeds are used in an experiment, it is useful and practical to dye one of them.
This practice is also interesting for evaluating consumption and any possible waste as it makes it easy to visually identify feed that has fallen into the litter.
Legally, dyes are classified as additives in animal and human nutrition. For precautionary reasons and in line with our policy of offering feed solutions with the greatest possible neutrality, SAFE® does not use dyes in standard feeds. The use of these additives is only possible in special feeds and only upon explicit customer request. The sensitivity of research models varies depending on strains, husbandry conditions and the trial itself.
There is no consensus on the possible organoleptic and sensory effects of such compounds. Therefore, it is not recommended to change the colors of the diets used during the experiment.
The SAFE® spruce bedding range is made from 100 % natural raw material. Benefit from the unique antibacterial effect of spruce! The germ and mold reducing properties are perfectly suited for scientific animal bedding.
For the production of SAFE® spruce bedding, only selected, untreated wood from local forestry is used. Short transport routes and PEFC-certified, sustainable forestry guarantee the best possible sustainability balance for SAFE® bedding. The company's central location in Europe ensures short distances to raw material and customers.
