The Organic Materials Review Institute has approved Alltech’s application for Sel-Plex 2000.

This means that Sel-Plex 2000 is now OMRI listed.

Since 1993, Sel-Plex 2000 has been a standard organic selenium source in animal diets around the world. With OMRI listing, Sel-Plex 2000 can be readily included in all organic feeding programs across the United States.

“Alltech is committed to registration and upholding regulatory values in markets around the world,” said Steve Traylor, Global Director of Regulatory Affairs. “With a dedicated focus to standard and specialized regulatory issues, Alltech can offer our customers the piece of mind that they can confidently use a product that is not only well researched, but one that has gone through the proper channels and declared safe for sale. We offer high quality, traceable solutions that can be incorporated in a variety of feeding programs.”

The United States Department of Agriculture states, “Consumer demand for organically produced goods has shown double-digit growth for well over a decade, providing market incentives for U.S. farmers across a broad range of products. Organic products are now available in nearly 20,000 natural food stores and nearly 3 of 4 conventional grocery stores. Organic sales account for over 3 percent of total U.S. food sales, according to recent industry statistics.”

Along with being listed OMRI, Sel-Plex 2000 is also the only FDA reviewed form of organic selenium. Sel-Plex 2000 is the first strain specific form of organic selenium to be EU approved for all species (Strain: Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-3060) as well.

Selenium is an essential nutrient for both animals and people, and plays a critical role in metabolism, normal growth, reproductive health, and immunity. Because of its specific organic form, Sel-Plex selenium is better absorbed and retained by the animal. Sel-Plex 2000 provides selenium in nature’s form – the safest form.

Alltech is also the title sponsor for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games which will be held in the United States for the first time ever in Kentucky in 2010.
