Scientific opinion on the characterisation of zinc compound ‘Zinc chelate of amino acids, hydrate (Availa®Zinc)’ as a feed additive for all animal species

EFSA Panel on Additives and Products or Substances used in Animal Feed (FEEDAP)

The opinion newly describes the characterisation and identity of the hydrolysed zinc-containing raw product used for formulation of the additive, and replaces the section ‘Characterisation and identity’ of the previous opinion on ‘Zinc chelate of amino acids hydrate, based on a dossier submitted by Zinpro Animal Nutrition Inc.’ published by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in 2012. The conclusions on the safety and efficacy of the additive, as well as recommendations, of the previous EFSA opinion remain unchanged. A further recommendation concerning the monitoring of raw material by the applicant was added.
