ABSTRACT
Supplying of livestock with unsaturated fatty acids with feed has been recently a subject of numerous research due to their influence on a composition and fat content in adipose tissue or milk products (Raes et al. 2004). Since the amount of added acids is small, their uniform distribution in feed becomes an issue. The easiest way is to spread them on a carrier that facilitates the homogenization of the whole system by simple, mechanical mixing. Such a carrier should be neutral for an organism, characterized by a large surface and well sorptive properties. That requirements are fulfilled by mineral carriers from aluminosilicates group, where silty minerals are of special importance.
