FRA Gut Balance

EFFECTIVE PATHOGEN CONTROL

Control Pathogens, ranging from Gram+ to Gram- bacteria.

All-encompassing approach to control pathogens

Pathogens can heavily impact livestock production. Pathogens impair feed conversion, reduce growth and diminish overall performance. Coming in all shapes and sizes, pathogens require a diverse approach to inhibit their growth and prevent reproduction. As Antibiotic Growth Promoters (AGPs) are banned in most countries, the demand for alternatives has increased considerably.

Research has shown that different glycerides have a strong inhibiting effect on specific pathogens. Whereas AGPs completely destroy the intestinal microbiome, certain glycerides are able to suppress pathogenic bacteria, such as: E. coli, Salmonella and Clostridium. Other glycerides can stimulate beneficial bacteria, such as: Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.

Above that, pathogens are unable to develop resistance against glycerides. Indicating that a well-substantiated combination of glycerides may be an all-encompassing approach to control pathogens and improve microbiota composition.

Adding FRA Gut Balance to livestock diets results in animals becoming less prone to infections. Consequently, they are stronger and have a better health status.

Well-balanced combination of glycerides

The effect of different glycerides is tested on specific pathogens. Certain glycerides have a surprisingly selective effect on the inhibition of pathogens. FRAmelco equipped FRA Gut Balance with a well-balanced combination of glycerides to cope with a wide range of pathogens. Relieving pathogenic pressure improves ADWG and Final Body Weight.

FRA Gut Balance

Increase Final Body Weight

Animal production and welfare are heavily impacted when pathogens enter the farm. This reduces growth and impairs feed conversion. FRA Gut Balance offers a solution to control pathogens, improving FCR and increasing weight gain.
