Control químico de la inversión de jugos de caña de azúcar para la alimentación animal


A constraint to the use of sugar cane juice in animal feeding is the ease and speed with which it ferments. Sodium metasilicate (Na2SiO3) and two natural sources of benzoic acid - the fresh macerated leaves of "Sauce" (Salix humboldtiana [Mol.Willd]) and "Quereme" (Cavendish quereme [HBK; B and H])-. The "Quereme" at concentrations of 100-200 g/litro preserved the juice for 48h; the sodium metasilicate at 5-7 g/litre was effective for up to 96h.
