Helps reduce the risk of enteric diseases
Decreases severity of necrotic enteritis 

Effective throughout the gastrointestinal tract  

Norel introduces Natesse for poultry to combat enteric diseases 


Norel Animal Nutrition has launched Natesse, a combination of sodium butyrate and essential oils that reduces the risk enteric poultry diseases.


Studies have shown that the addition of Natesse in the diets of chickens infected with Clostridium perfringens (a common cause of food poisoning) improved their weight gain. It also reduced the severity of necrotic enteritis by 73.3% at the macroscopic symptoms level and 46% at microscopic level.


Natesse also causes statistically significant biological changes in cytokine production, which implies a stimulation of the immune response. By doing this, Natesse provides a protective effect against necrotic enteritis infection.


Natesse contains active substances in both free and protected form, allowing for gradual release during digestion that makes the product effective throughout the gastrointestinal tract. The product is intended to provide both the benefits of protected sodium butyrate along with antibacterial properties of essential oils.


Product Highlights

Combination of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids

Acts against both gram-positive and gram-negative pathogenic bacteria
Promotes development of beneficial intestinal flora

Schaumann develops new feed acid to combat Salmonella

Schaumann has developed a new feed acid combination designed to permanently minimise Salmonella and suppress E. coli bacterial proliferation.


Schaumacid S is a targeted enhancement of Schaumann's range of feed acids. The combination of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids has a broad spectrum of activity against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including Salmonella.


It also inhibits the development of Streptococci, Staphylococci and Clostridia, with tests confirming that it reduces the Salmonella invasion rate of the intestinal tract.


The product also acidifies the gastrointestinal tract. In dosing so, it promotes the growth of beneficial intestinal flora, thereby boosting feed conversion ratios and animal performance.


In light of the latest Salmonella Regulations from both the US FDA and the EU, targeted Salmonella counts are a legal necessity. This new product can play a key role in achieving such necessary legislative compliance.
