Rapeseed-based fat from European origins
Mega-Euro 16 is a unique new product formulation developed by Volac Wilmar offering a blend of C16:0 (palmitic) and C18:1 (oleic) fatty acids similar to the highly-proven Megalac product, manufactured from European-sourced rapeseed.
Why is Mega-Euro 16 unique ?
Palmitic acid is found in high concentrations only in palm oil, with only very low levels in other oil crops such as standard rapeseed oil (6%). Volac Wilmar have developed a source of rapeseed oil with concentrated palmitic acid (50%), while retaining a high concentration (30%) of the oleic fatty acids proven to increase digestibility of total fat in the diet, aid improvement of cow body condition and improve development of eggs and embryos to increase cow fertility.
Mega-Euro 16 is manufactured as a calcium salt to provide rumen-protection of the fatty acids and ensure delivery of oleic acid to the small intestine where it can be absorbed and used by the animal.
The product has a similar formulation to the proven Megalac rumen-protected fat, providing a unique product of European origin to target improved milk production and fertility.
