Patented preservative for high-

moisturegrain and grain maize


For excellent feed hygiene and high animal performance


KOFA GRAIN -pH 5- is a novel preservative containing sodium benzoate,

propionic acid and sodium propionate for the use in cereals and grain maize.

The unique, patented formulation makes it superior to other preservatives

in terms of efficacy and user-friendliness. Compared with the drying of

grain, the use of KOFA GRAIN -pH 5- offers significant cost benefits to the

farmer. In addition, the product is as equally effective as pure acid blends,

but has markedly improved handling properties for user and equipment.


The combination of a cleaning procedure of the grain immediately after

harvesting and the application of the unique formulation of KOFA GRAIN

-pH 5- with its strong inhibitory effect on yeasts and moulds forms the basis

for excellent feed hygiene being the key for good animal health and high performance.
