By adding foreign substances, that means substances which will be sent to us by customers, the labeled best before date only refers to the "basic diet" but not to the concentration of the mixed additive of the customer. Possible chemical reactions or derivatisations, oxidative or other modifications induced by environmental storage conditions or influences while production processing cannot be considered by Altromin. Furthermore, please note that there can occur temperatures of 45°C to 85°C on the pellet surface while pelleting process.
