50lb Bag of Organic Icelandic Kelp!
The finest certified organic nutrient source on the market today. It contains a range of minerals and vitamins often deficient in soils and feed and has a broad array of uses in agriculture and product formulations.
AS AN ANIMAL FEED INGREDIENT: Healthy animals require a balanced diet, including many vitamins and minerals not found in today’s forages or feeds. Icelandic Kelp is a valuable renewable resource for animal health. Kelp concentrates the nutritious minerals dissolved in ocean water into a complex natural food supplement containing over 60 vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in a readily available form, including iodine. Absorbable iodine, deficient in many soils, grasses and feeds, is essential for healthy thyroid function. Below are the recommended ratios or suggested rations for each type of animal (per animal per day):
- Poultry – 1-2%

These kelps collect minerals, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids and other beneficial bioactive properties. Thorvin carefully captures and preserves these nutrients using the most effective drying and storing methods in order to deliver the most consistently effective products derived from these kelps. Thorvin requires superior selection, management, harvesting and processing to meet its standards. Please see usage guide below:
