VITAMIN B2 (RIBOFLAVIN)
Vitamin B2 is a water soluble vitamin and is very important for animal nutrition
It is necessary for normal embryo development, important in the metabolism of amino acids and carbohydrates. In its defficiency, poor reproduction litters and deformed young (cleft palate and club-footedness) curly toe paralysis in chicks, digestive disturbances, general weakness and eye abnormalities can be seen. If levels of riboflavin are low, the respiration process becomes less efficient, and 10% to 15% more feed is required to meet energy needs.
