Animal Nutrition



Far more than being just a digestive organ, the gut is key to every aspect of animal health, wellbeing and performance.

Monoglycerides are proven to play a vital role in this: by restoring gut integrity, supporting beneficial bacteria and the animal’s own immune defense system. All this without excessive use of antibiotics. Thus, monoglycerides like BalanGut® can help you create feed that delivers for the animals, your business and your customers, while meeting the demands of the market and consumers. Sustainable feed that succeeds.

Antibiotics are used abundantly as an insurance for multifactorial diseases in animal production


There are too many factors that can affect the health of the animals.

Thus, producers use antibiotics as an insurance to ensure optimal zoo technical performance.

Abundant use of antibiotics has a negative impact on the gut microbiome of the animal and increases antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in humans and animals
