BIOMIN has launched its "next-generation" phytogenic feed additive (PFA) Digestarom® DC, as it fulfills its ambition to become the PFA market leader by 2020.
"Digestarom DC represents a dramatically new approach to phytogenics," said Michael Noonan, Global Product Manager Phytogenics at BIOMIN. "We've concentrated our efforts on how to improve feed conversion, because we know that it's a core concern for livestock and feed producers around the globe."
According to the BIOMIN 2017 Phytogenic Feed Additives Survey, enhanced feed efficiency or a better feed conversion ratio ranked as the most important benefit of phytogenics to the 1,140 industry respondents.
"Digestarom DC is the result of significant proprietary R&D and leverages the know-how of the longstanding and successful Digestarom product line," Noonan explained. "With a clear and documented mode of action, Digestarom DC results in improved palatability, enhanced digestibility, reduced intestinal challenge, better animal product quality, and improved animal welfare."
Digestarom DC incorporates the new Biomin® Duplex Capsule technology that ensures the plant-based active compounds are delivered where they are needed to be most effective.
"The unique encapsulation technology is designed for targeted release of specific phytogenic compounds throughout the digestive process, and demonstrates stability under common pelleting conditions," said Noonan.
The mode of action of Digestarom DC and its key benefits are highlighted in a new video which is available on http://www.thefeedconverter.com/
BIOMIN will first showcase the new product from March 15-17, 2017 at VIV Asia in Hall 102, Booth 1000 in the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre in Thailand.
