Based on a patented technology, FRA have developed FRA® LAC34: a specific formula containing short chain 1-monoglycerides, lactic acid and carefully selected micro-ingredients. Feeding this product to piglets, pigs and sows, reduces health problems and improves animal performance.
Extensive research shows that short chain 1-monoglycerides possess antibacterial and animal performance improving properties. FRA LAC34 contains 1-monoglycerides of short chain fatty acids 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.
Lactic acid is a natural substance known for its beneficial effects on different enzymatic processes, feed intake, and pathogen inhibiting properties. FRA’s studies have shown that a synergistic effect is reached when 1-monoglycerides are combined with lactic acid, especially when aiming at clostridium reduction.
Adding a small amount of carefully selected micro-ingredients induces a synergistic effect. These micro-ingredients contribute to the animal’s resilience against invading pathogens.
