Based on a patented technology, FRA developed FRA Shrimp Protect liquid: a specific formula containing several 1-monoglycerides, carefully selected organic acids and micro-ingredients. Feeding this product to shrimp reduces the infection rate and thereby lowers mortality caused by EMS.
Extensive research shows that 1-monoglycerides possess antibacterial, antiviral, and animal performance improving properties.
FRA Shrimp Protect liquid contains 1-monoglycerides of short chain fatty acids to deactivate Vibrio and other gram-negative pathogenic bacteria. Additionally, 1-monoglycerides of medium chain fatty acids are added to deactivate the phage virus and to control the growth of gram-positive pathogenic bacteria.
As a result of the stable molecular structure, 1-monoglycerides are active in the entire gastrointestinal tract and blood stream. Pathogens do not develop resistance against 1-monoglycerides, making this blend a suitable alternative for regular antibiotics.
Organic acids & micro-ingredients
A synergetic effect is induced by adding a small amount of carefully selected organic acids and micro-ingredients. While the acids enhance the strength of the 1-monoglycerides,
