IFP – Inorganic Feed Phosphates

Inorganic feed phosphates are a high quality phosphorus source for animal feed. Most inorganic feed phosphates are derived from natural rock phosphate – the rock being chemically treated to make the phosphorus available for animals in the form of quality feed phosphates. The main inorganic feed phosphates are calcium, magnesium, calcium-sodium, calcium-magnesium, ammonium and sodium phosphates. These phosphates are constant in composition, low in impurities and considered by scientists as the best available source of phosphorus for animals. An adequate supply of inorganic feed phosphates in animal feed is essential for the optimal performance and well-being of animals. Therefore, feed phosphates are widely used in all types of feeds for all animal species.

Cooperate with national and international authorities, and with trade associations with regard to questions concerning the feed and food chain. Promote and encourage safety in the production, transport and use of inorganic feed phosphates. Study and promote all measures aimed at controlling pollution and improving the environment in the production, transport and use of inorganic feed phosphates. Promote the research and development, together with scientific and academic studies in the field of inorganic feed phosphates. Further investigate the concept of highly digestible phosphates.
