Sodium bicarbonate plays an important role in animal nutrition today. Primarily used as a dairy cow feed supplement, the buffering capability of Natural Soda’s pure and natural feed grade sodium bicarbonate helps stabilize rumen pH by reducing acid conditions. Our pure and natural sodium bicarbonate is trusted by dairymen and nutritionists over alternative buffers due to its excellent buffering capabilities and superior palatability.
Sodium bicarbonate is also fed as a partial replacement for salt in poultry rations. Broiler Operations find that sodium bicarbonate provides an alternative source of sodium that assists with litter control by providing drier litter and a healthier living environment.
Sodium bicarbonate is used in the agricultural industry as a natural fungicide as well as to maintain proper pH conditions. When used in organic food production as a fungicide, sodium bicarbonate creates an unfavorable environment for fungal growth without impacting plant growth. Sodium bicarbonate is a non-toxic and organic alternative fungicide for agricultural applications.
NATURAL SODA’S SODIUM BICARBONATE PROVIDES A SAFE RELIABLE PRODUCT FOR ANIMAL NUTRITION AND AGRICULTURAL APPLICATIONS.
