The product is currently sold for broiler and turkey production only. AlzChem is committed to expand the Creamino label in the USA to allow use for swine and other animals in the future.

About AlzChem Animal Nutrition
AlzChem Animal Nutrition is a key part of Specialty Chemicals at AlzChem Group AG, a vertically integrated German manufacturer of various chemical products based on the NCN chain. The company is the only manufacturer of patented Creamino-an innovative guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) feed additive developed by AlzChem. AlzChem Animal Nutrition offers an expanding product portfolio based on extensive research and development and stringent quality control for production agriculture and companion animals.

Creamino is a feed additive that an animal processes into creatine once it is consumed. The additive streamlines the synthesis of creatine, reducing the amount of time and feed required for production. The benefits of Creamino include a reduction in feed costs for farmers, conservation of resources, and a reduction in the ecological footprint of food production and transportation. AlzChem developed Creamino between 2005 and 2009 as a creatine solution specifically for poultry and swine feed applications.
