The good properties of eggshel
CALCOLIN offers all the good properties of eggshells, eggshell membranes and attached egg contents in a safe and long-lasting form. CALCOLIN provides not only calcium, but also contains 6% high quality protein and many substances.
CALCOLIN FOR OPTIMAL LACTATION AND GROWTH
The composition of an eggshell is very similar to that of the skeleton. Therefore its nutritional support during lactation and growth is valuable.
High protein and more
CALCOLIN contains approximately 6% protein, 0.4% fat and 35% calcium and trace amounts of other minor elements, i.e. Mg, Cu, Mn and Zn. CALCOLIN furthermore contains significant amounts of glycosaminoglycans (GAG), important, inter alia, for the development of joints and cartilage. The main GAG’s are hyaluronic acid and chondroitin.
The fraction of egg-albumin in CALCOLIN contains small amounts of lysozyme and ovotransferrin, both substances with known antimicrobial
properties. The eggshell protein matrix consists of several types of protein: osteopontin (ovocleidine and ovocalyxine) and ovalbumin.

2,6% more Grade-A eggs after feeding laying hens with dried egg shells
In collaboration with AgruniekRijnvallei (a major Dutch Feed producer), a 100-weeks during feeding trail was completed recently in which the effect of dried egg shells (Calcolin DES) in laying hen feed on egg quality was studied. One of multiple positive findings when dried egg shells are used as a calcium source, is a significantly higher percentage of A-class eggs and less cracks. Soon all findings of the feeding trial will be described in a white paper.
