What is Klinofeed?

Klinofeed is a silicate of sedimentary origin from the group of clinoptilolites. The special preparation of Klinofeed activates the extraordinary binding properties of the product.

Due to its very fine crystal grid structure, Klinofeed has an enormously large active surface to which various ions can be bound extraordinarily firmly.

Clinoptilolite of sedimentary origin is authorised under the identification number 1g568 as a technological feed additive according to Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 in functional group 1g – binder and in functional group 1i – release agent.

The dosage of Klinofeed in feed improves the technological properties such as mixability, as well as the formability and looseness of the feed.

The amount of free water in the feed is reduced (lowering the aw-value.)  The shelf life and flowability of the feed are positively influenced, as free water is effectively bound for the growth of bacteria and fungi, thus providing better protection against microbial spoilage and oxidative processes in the feed.

Klinofeed has been successfully used for more than 25 years to improve technological properties in the compound feed industry and on farms.

Special additional effects of Klinofeed

Klinofeed selectively binds harmful substances (e.g. NH4+, heavy metals). Nutrients and active ingredients are still fully usable for the animal. They are not adsorbed.

What does Klinofeed do in feeding?

Klinofeed is a 100% dietary fibre and is much more effective than crude fibre for the optimisation of digestion. The binding of harmful substances noticeably relieves the metabolism and saves energy for more performance. The ammonia load in the stable air is reduced considerably.

Klinofeed for pigs

Practical experience with the use of Klinofeed in pig herds

Practitioners report better intestinal stability, higher gains, better feed conversion and reduced mortality when using Klinofeed in pig herds. In addition, an improvement of the stable climate and the flowability of the manure is observed.

Klinofeed in cattle feeding

Deficits in the quality of the basic feed (mould, reheating) reduce milk and reproductive performance. Klinofeed increases feeding safety all year round by selectively binding harmful substances. By relieving the metabolism, the health and performance of the animals is stabilised. When using Klinofeed for dairy cows all year round, practitioners often find lower milk cell contents and urea content in the milk.

Klinofeed in poultry feeding

The following advantages result when using Klinofeed in poultry fattening and laying hen farming:

  • lower faecal moisture
  • drier bedding
  • less dirty eggs
  • improved eggshell quality
  • better climate in the stable
  • lower mortality
  • fewer changes to the ball of the foot


Recommended use for pigs, cows, cattle, calves and poultry:

» Dairy cattle: 100 – 200 g per animal/day (0.5% – 1% of complete feed)

» Calves: 10 – 25 g per animal/day (1 % of complete feed)

» fattening cattle: 50 – 100 g per animal/day (0.5% – 1% of the complete feed)

» pigs (breeding sows, piglets, fattening pigs): 1% in complete feed

» poultry (broilers, turkeys, laying hens): 1% in complete feed

» Horses: 1 % in complete feed

» To improve the flowability of the feed 1

» Improvement of pelletising capacity: 1 %.


Klinofeed can be added to complete feed up to 10,000 mg/kg.

Klinofeed is approved for all animal species! (EU Regulation 651 2013)

Profitability of Klinofeed

The use of Klinofeed leads to more safety and more constant performance in pig farming at a low cost!
