ICC Brazil to participate in IPPE
ICC Brazil will participate in the IPPE (International Production & Processing Expo) which takes place from February 12-14, in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.
ICC Brazil's R&D Coordinator, Melina Bonato, will present the results of the study "Yeast cell wall immunomodulatory and intestinal integrity effects on broilers challenged with Salmonella Enteritidis". This study was conducted in 2016, along with the Southern Poultry Research Group, in the United States. The research was carried out by Prof. Dr. Charles Hofacre, who analysed 192 laying hens contaminated with Salmonella enteritidis and the efficiency of ImmunoWall® in reducing the issue in poultry.
"In this study, the laying hens that were fed with a diet supplemented with ImmunoWall showed a statistical reduction in the caecum contamination by Salmonella enteritidis compared to the untreated control group. The result was obtained following the recommended standard dosage of the product. This decrease in the caecum infection is a determinant factor regarding food safety since it consequently reduces the contamination on the egg's surface. After the laying, the cooling begins; this is when the bacteria on the surface migrate towards the interior through the pores of the shell. Thus, the less contamination on the surface with Salmonella enteritidis, the less the infection inside the egg," says Bonato.
In addition to Bonato, ICC Brazil will also be represented at the event by their CEO, Glycon Santos, Brazil Sales Manager, Ricardo Barbalho, and LATAM Sales Manager, Ricardo Toledo.
