Choline chloride is a member of the B-complex group of water-soluble vitamins (vitamin B-4). It is used as an animal feed additive, especially for poultry and swine, to increase growth, reduce mortality rate, increase feed efficiency, increase egg production, and improve meat quality. It is not a substitute for any other feed supplement and has no direct substitutes itself.
A class action was commenced in which it was alleged that certain manufacturers of choline chloride unlawfully conspired to fix prices and allocate markets for this vitamin.
