Danisco receives organic listing for poultry probiotic


Danisco Animal Nutrition, now part of IFF, said in a press statement that the US-based Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) has reviewed its poultry probiotic Enviva® Provalen Plus and it is now included in the OMRI Products Lists©.

The probiotic is used in the production in the livestock feed ingredients to help support the needs of the organic poultry markets. It is "allowed with restrictions" for use in compliance with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) National Organic Program.

Enviva Provalen Plus is a five-strain Bacillus probiotic for poultry litter management. The additive comprises two distinct groups of bacteria with unique properties: three strains of enzyme-producing bacteria selected specifically to digest poultry manure, thus promoting the natural drying of litter; two unique strains of bioactive peptide-producing bacteria selected for inhibition of specific bacterial populations in the litter, like E. coli and C. perfringens, thereby maintaining lower ammonia levels and lower bacterial challenge.

"Our Danisco Animal Nutrition team has extensively analysed litter samples to confidently say that Enviva Provalen Plus is the best natural litter solution for the commercial poultry house," says Dawn Overby, global segment manager, Danisco Animal Nutrition, IFF. "With this OMRI listing, live production managers can be assured that that they are using a superior solution that is compliant with organic standards and will benefit their organic production."
