Nutriad presents new poultry gut health research data

haithamMultinational feed additives producer Nutriad continues to strengthen its position as an innovator and leader in research on natural digestive performance additives


At the 2017 Annual Poultry Science Association (PSA) meeting, which was recently held in Orlando, USA, Dr. Haitham Yakout, Director of Technical Support for Nutriad presented two research findings from recent studies on digestive performance technologies. In sponsoring the event Nutriad further confirmed its commitment to the poultry industry. 

The first study highlighted the application of Quorum Sensing (QS) as a tool for selecting botanical ingredients for feed additives. The use of botanical additives has been on the rise, driven by new regulations on the usage of antibiotics growth promoters, and its mode of action has been vastly studied. With a proprietary formulation of various botanicals, a positive impact on performance can be achieved on QS by disrupting the pathogens communications, thus reducing their negative impact on overall animal health. In a second study, results of a feeding program approach in broilers was presented, combining the application of precision delivery coated butyrate (Ultramix C®) in starter feed and a botanical additive (Apex 5®) in both grower and finisher broiler diets. 

The meeting provided the opportunity to discuss our products and research with four of the largest broiler integrators, as well as other key influencers in the industry.

 “It is great to see Nutriad investing in novel ideas in additives application to support customers achieve an even better performance in a challenging time when AGPs are being removed from diets” says Guilherme Bromfman, Director of Business Development for Nutriad. Grady Fain Sr. Vice President, Sales and Business Development added: “The US market faces new regulations and continuous regulatory. Ongoing consolidation changes the way producers operate. In this environment Nutriad is committed to take leadership in providing solutions for the challenges producers face today as well as future challenges.”

NUTRIAD delivers products and services to over 80 countries, supported by 4 application laboratories and 5 manufacturing facilities on 3 continents.
