ACIDOMATRIXTM is a proprietary line of protected Gut Environment Modifiers (GEMs) formulated to improve feed quality and help optimize efficient nutrient uptake. ACIDOMATRIX organic acids are dispersed throughout a matrix, resulting in a more consistent release profile. ACIDOMATRIX stabilizes the intestinal microflora of production animals for effective pathogen control and effectively increases performance during diet changes or in antibiotic free diets.
Bacteria such as Salmonella spp., Campylobacter spp., E. coli, Clostridium spp. and others, can create a negative environment at the intestinal level. When populations of these infectious agents colonize the intestinal tissue, the nutrient absorption process is negatively affected and can result in poor growth performance.
Furthermore, the control of pathogenic bacteria in the food chain has become a basic requirement due to its impact on food safety and therefore, the confidence of the consumer on the food supply. The introduction of these harmful agents in livestock can be controlled by sound feed hygiene and upper gut acidification.
- ACIDOMATRIXTM Low Lac is comprised of encapsulated organic acids. This unique form of protection allows slow release of the organic acids, which makes them more available and efficient in the lower part of the intestinal tract. This formulation is ideally suited for reduced lactose diets.
