FRAmelco have developed FRA® Butyrin Hybrid Dry: a specific formula containing 1-monoglycerides, di- and triglycerides of butyrate, and carefully selected micro-ingredients. Feeding this product to poultry, stimulates
gut development, reduces health problems and improves animal performance.
1-monoglycerides of butyrate
Extensive research shows that short chain 1-monoglycerides possess antibacterial and animal performance improving properties. FRA® Butyrin Hybrid Dry contains 1-monoglycerides of butyrate to inhibit gram-negative pathogenic bacteria. As a result of the unique mode of action, 1-monoglycerides are active in the entire gastrointestinal tract and blood stream. Pathogens do not develop resistance against 1-monoglycerides. It is suggested by literature that 1-monoglycerides may be used as an alternative for preventive use of antibiotics.
Di- and triglycerides of butyrate
The effect of butyric acid on gut development is intensively studied. Butyric acid serves as energy source for the epithelium cells and stimulates villi growth and recovery, and length of the small intestines, resulting in more efficient uptake of nutrients and enhanced resistance against pathogens. Di- and triglycerides of butyrate are non-smelling and guarantee an effective target release of butyric acid in the gut.
Adding a small amount of caref ully selected micro-ingredients induces a synergistic effect. These micro-
ingredients contribute to the animal’s resilience against invading pathogens.
