Young chicks were fed a vitamin K-deficient soybean concentrate basal diet containing graded levels of menadione from menadione nicotinamide bisulfite (MNB) or menadione dimethyl-pyrimidinol bisulfite (MPB) to assess prothrombin time as a function of menadione intake. Prothrombin time decreased linearly as menadione dose increased from 0 to 400 micrograms/kg. Multiple linear regression slope-ratio calculations indicated that both sources of menadione were of equal potency. To assess niacin… Expand

Menadione nicotinamide bisulphite as a source of vitamin K and niacin activities for the growing pig.
TLDR
Menadione nicotinamide bisulphite (MNB), an organic salt combining menadione and Nicotinamide, shows better stability towards physical and chemical factors once it is added to pre-mixes or foods. Expand
Scientific Opinion on the safety and efficacy of niacin (nicotinamide) as feed additive for all animal species based on a dossier submitted by
The term ‘niacin’ is used as generic description of nicotinic acid and nicotinamide with pyridine as the basic structure. Nicotinic acid and nicotinamide function mainly as precursors of theExpand
Scientific Opinion on the safety and efficacy of niacin (nicotinic acid and nicotinamide) as a feed additive for all animal species based on a dossier submitted by VITAC EEIG
TLDR
Niacin is safe for the target animals with a margin of safety that is at least ten times the requirements and use levels, and the use of niacin in animal nutrition is not of safety concern for consumers. Expand

Publisher Summary The available literature on vitamin bioavailability in feed ingredients is very limited. Crystalline thiamin is available to the food and feed industries as thiamin-HCl (89%Expand
Investigations in pet birds (Agapornis spp.) fed different vitamin K contents in the diet.
In the past many discussions about possible toxic effects of vitamin K(3) fed to pet birds arose frequently, and were published also in magazines for pet bird fanciers, in the internet as well as inExpand
Composition of vitamin supplements in Spanish poultry diets.
TLDR
In general, vitamin fortification exceeded the NRC recommendations, using a high safety margin for some vitamins such as vitamin A and for some poultry classes such as breeders and breeding classes, taking into account the dietary contribution. Expand

TLDR
To investigate in an appropriate experiment whether and upon which dosis of vitamin K3 any injury is caused when given orally for a longer period, a feeding trial was carried out in which examplarily adult agapornides were employed. Expand
