In a previous article, we discussed the importance of contaminated drinking water as a risk factor for colibacillosis and stressed the need to pay attention to its microbiological quality.

In a recent trial made in our lab, we showed the in vitro effectiveness of DigestoCid© to eliminate E. coli from drinking water:

In the test, drinking water was artificially contaminated with 100 cfu/ml of E. coli. DigestoCid© was added to four aliquots of the contaminated water at concentrations of 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2 ml/litre. Another aliquot of contaminated water without DigestoCid© was taken as blank. After 24 h of incubation at 20ºC, a dilution of each aliquot was seeded on Muller Hinton Agar and incubated during 24ºC to check for bacterial growth.

DigestoCid© at 0.25 ml/L was able to reduce the growth of E. coli by 97.6%, while at a concentration of 0.5 ml/L and higher was able eliminate E. coli completely.

It is concluded that DigestoCid© is helpful to eliminate E. coli from drinking water and should be part of a holistic plan to prevent colibacillosis.

Product of choice

DigestoCid© is intended as a water acidifier, water sanitizer and to improve gut health in poultry and pigs of all ages.

It contains:

  • Buffered organic acids, that reduce the pH of drinking water and inhibit the growth of Gram-negative bacteria.
  • Monoester fatty acids also called medium chain fatty acids, that inhibit the growth of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria and have antiviral effects.
  • Essential oils and phytochemicals with antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antioxidant properties.

DigestoCid© has a broader spectrum of action compared to products based solely on organic acids and allows superior antibacterial and antifungal effectiveness at a less acidic pH (5.5-6.5) than competitors
