Kemin Industries recently showcased its new Aleta™ beta glucan to more than 60 veterinary specialists from the EMENA (Europe, Middle East, North Africa) and Southeast Asia regions at a seminar in Rome, Italy, prior to the Intestinal Health Scientific Interest Group's (IHSIG) 6th Conference on Poultry Intestinal Health in the city.

Aleta is a unique beta-glucan molecule derived from the specific algae Euglena gracilis. An immune modulator available for agricultural animal species, Aleta reinforces the immune system for optimal function during periods of stress, disease and vaccination.

The Kemin-hosted seminar focusing on the advantages of Aleta included presentations from Delphine Le Roux, assistant professor in Immunology at the National Veterinary School of Alfort (France), who spoke about immunity in animal production; Geoff Horst, the inventor of Aleta; and other speakers from Kemin.

"This is the ideal time to highlight the science behind the molecule and the benefits it provides veterinarians and other stakeholders," said Karl De Bruyne, vice president (sales and marketing) of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health (EMENA). "The molecule's mode of action was shown in a new 3D video to demonstrate how Aleta interacts with the immune system."

Immune modulation is the future of disease prevention and is becoming increasingly important as a strategy to optimise animal health. Aleta harnesses beta glucan from a new source, algae, and the multiple studies Kemin has conducted show its effectiveness as an immune modulator for agricultural animal species.

Kemin also showcased Aleta during the IHSIG 6th Conference on Poultry Intestinal Health with two abstracts selected for oral presentation, reflecting Kemin's expertise on the unique beta-glucan molecule. With extensive research and knowledge on Aleta and its assets, Kemin will work together with its customers to support them with immune modulation in their own animals.
