Cholesterol SF

Shrimp Farming:
Cholesterol is an essential ingredient in diets for shrimp farming as it improves the immune system and growth of crustaceans. Two products are offered by Dishman Netherlands Cholesterol SF and Cholesterol XG, which both have the same mode of operation and defined particle size.

Cholesterol SF reduces susceptibility to diseases by strengthening their immune system. Cholesterol improves the food conversion ratio (FCR) by improving the shrimp's weight gain. Shrimps need cholesterol as building block for shrimp tissue needed for the moulding process. Cholesterol cannot be synthesized by the shrimp themselves.
