To improve animal performance, livestock producers need to control pathogenic pressure. They also need to take care of the animal’s intestinal health status and where possible, support the animal’s immune system functioning.
What if, with a well-substantiated combination of glycerides all these topics can be targeted at the same time?
Different glycerides are active against specific pathogens, ranging from Gram- and Gram+ bacteria to fat-enveloped viruses. Glycerides of butyric acid stimulate intestinal integrity and intestinal health. By inducing the formation of tight junctions, the intestinal barrier function is also improved. Glycerides of lauric acid support immune system functioning by increasing antibody titer values.
Glycerides of caprylic, capric and lauric acid are known for their anti-inflammatory effects. FRA® Gut Protect combines these benefits with the power from glycerides of butyric, citric and myristic acid.
Glycerides are formed when glycerol is mixed with certain organic acids under a specific temperature, time and pressure. This esterification reaction creates amongst others alpha-monoglycerides, that have a strong effect on animal health and performance. Secondly, diglycerides are formed. Diglycerides also have the potential to improve animal health and performance. Thirdly, triglycerides are formed and used as energy source.
Combining mono-, di- and triglycerides with fatty acids harnesses the power of organic acids and enables it to capitalize on its full potential throughout the entire animal body.
