Orffa Clay mineral with unique properties to bind ammonia in the gut Formulating a commercial animal diet with 100% protein digestibility is not practically possible as there is always an undigested part. Ammonia is produced when this undigested protein is fermented in the large intestine. Ammonia is an unwanted substance which is harmful for intestinal health. It can induce diarrhoea, footpad lesions and infections. As a result animal performance is reduced. When excreted in high concentrations, ammonia can also affect the health of staff, cause detrimental effects on environment such as acidification, eutrophication, and contribution to air pollution. Being a clay mineral, AmmoMIN can play a role in reducing the harmful effects of ammonia. This improves animal health and performance. AmmoMIN is a natural sedimentary clay mineral: clinoptilolite.
