What is advantages of silica based Choline chloride over corn cob based CC?
One of the main problem of Reinecke salt method is standardization. Any other method which analyse choline part of CC? What's about confirmation through HPLC based tests?

For Dr.Kompiang:

Choline Chloride is worthless for ruminants: it is 100% degraded in the rumen and half life is of only minutes. Ruminants DO respond to choline but not in the chloride form used for monogastrics.

Rumen protect choline chloride is now available. Very good to control body fat metabolism especially when animal is in negative energy balance. Reduces the chances of ketosis when used in combination with rumen protected niacin.
