BalanGut™ LS 

A healthy gut is the key to a healthy animal

Far more than being just a digestive organ, the gut is key to every aspect of animal health, wellbeing and performance. BalanGut® LS is proven to play a vital role in this, restoring gut integrity, supporting beneficial bacteria, the animal’s own immune defence system, without excessive use of antibiotics. So it 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.

Why BalanGut® LS?

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

BalanGut® LS:

a unique composition of naturally occurring monoglycerides of short and medium chain fatty acids to


1. strengthen animal gut integrity

2. support host defense
