  • FRA® Gut Balance

    Our new product 'FRA® Gut Balance' is recently launched and has a multifactorial approach, which makes this a unique product.


    This novel FRA-product has a multifactorial approach due to its unique composition. FRA® Gut Balance consists of a combination of monoglycerides of propionic acid, butyric acid, caprylic and capric acid.


    This combination makes FRA® Gut Balance active against both gram positive and gram negative bacteria, like E. Coli, Salmonella and even Campylobacter.


    Due to the unique properties of monoglycerides, FRA® Gut Balance survives the acid environment of the stomach and will be active in the stomach and at gut level (higher pH).


    FRA® Gut Balance is the most potent antimicrobial agent active at gut level. Another unique virtue of FRA® Gut Balance is that it can be applied via both feed and drinking water.


    FRA® Gut Balance, when applied correctly, can be used in combination with other gut health enhancer, like probiotics and essential oils and/ or traditional acidifiers. 


    In case you want to know more or check our trial results, please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • FRA® C 12 found in blood

    FRA® C12 is an antimicrobial and antiviral product which is active on feed level, in the digestive tract and inside the animal body. 

    The unique virtues of FRA® C 12 allow this product to be partially transported to the systemic circulation via the so called intestinal lymphatic transport system meaning that the main constituent, a-monolaurin, can induce its antibacterial and antiviral effects inside the animal body as well. 


    In order to demonstrate that the above mentioned intestinal lymphatic transport system applies for a-monolaurin a study was conducted at a pig farm in The Netherlands. The test was conducted in fattening pigs and lasted 14 consecutive days. The treatment animals received 10 gram of a-monolaurin per day on top of their basal diets whereas the control animals did not receive any a-monolaurin. Blood samples were taken at start of trial and at the end of the trial period.


    The outcome of this experiment has proven that a-monolaurin was present in the blood samples of fattening pigs supplemented with FRA® C 12. The blood samplesof the control animals did not show any presence of a-monolaurin.


    In case you want more information regarding our in-house method to analyse a-monolaurin in blood samples kindly contact us here. Our R&D department can also provide you the full trial report upon request.

  • FRA® Butyrin line

    FRAmelco's proudly presents its brand new FRA® Butyrin line. The FRA® Butyrin line is the industry's no. 1 butyric acid glyceride product.

    The FRA® Butyrin line consists of different additives based on monoglycerides of butyric acid and triglycerides of butyric acid. Each product also contains a combination of essential oils and flavour enhancing aromas.


    In case the market situation demands more antimicrobial activity on gut level we recommend our FRA® Butyrin Mono product. However, if the main goal is to release butyric acid on gut level we recommend the FRA® Butyrin Ultra. For an optimal cost-benefit ratio we highly recommend the market to apply the FRA® Butyrin Hybrid solution as this product provides both a very strong antimicrobial effect while delivering a high amount of butyric acid to the epithelial cells.


    The FRA® Butyrin line is developed to be applied via the feed. Yet, FRA® Butyrin Mono liquid, can also be administerred via the drinking water. 


    The FRA® Butyrin line products are now officially available. For more information we suggest you contact us here
