Dry and Liquid Feed Acidifier Formula for Feedmills and Topdress

Assist Acidifier is a unique blend of high-performing organic acids, a wide-ranging trace mineral complex and amino acids which synergize the overall benefits of this acidifier. This product is primarily designed to balance the microflora in the digestive tract, deter the growth of gut pathogens, enhance the performance of the gut enzymes during digestion, and increase nutritional uptake which promotes overall growth.

Assist Acidifier combines acetic, lactic, propionic and citric acids to improve digestion. On a technical level, these acids and other ingredients “disassociate” individually from the chemical structure at certain points in the digestive process, both in the gut, and later in the environment. Assist Acidifier is unique because it performs “linear acidifying actions” at key points of digestion starting at feed intake and continues to when the feed is expelled into the pond. This results in better feed performance.

Since acidifiers are formulated at lower pH, they exhibit greater antimicrobial action by easily penetrating cell walls of pathogens, effectively immobilizing pathogenic activity. Lower pH improves mineral chelation and prevents bacterial degradation of feed for storage without losing nutritional quality.

Assist Acidifier comes in both a Liquid and Dry format for easier application in either mill or topdress application. Applied with Assist Jumpstart and Immune Modulators, it provides a potent solution in the farmer’s nutritional program.

Assist contribution to the worldwide movement to reduce the use of antibiotics in animals for consumption. Assist Acidifier is recognized as a substitute for antibiotic usage and allows the farmer to export the harvest according to international standards. Antibiotics generally limit the growth potential of shrimp and fish which depletes the energy required for disease prevention. Assist Acidifier functions like antibiotics without the negative effects on animal health, public health, the environment and trade.

Application and Handling

Directions for Liquid Feed

Shake well prior to mixing.

Dosage of Assist Acidifier is determined by your current drinking water pH.

To determine dosage complete the following steps:

  • Measure pH of your drinking water.
  • Add 2 ounces Acidifier per gallon of water and inject using a medicator 1:128.
  • Allow 12-24 hours prior to increasing dosage.
  • Repeat above process until you reach your desired pH.
  • Recommend maintaining a consistent pH in drinking water between 6.0 – 7.0.
  • Acidifier can be injected using a parastolic pump.
