INTRODUCTION Prebiotics are products containing carbohydrates, which main component is mannose. These products are commonly use to reduce the colonization of the intestinal tract by enteropathogenic bacteria. Probiotics are mainly represented by mannanoligosaccharides (MOS) and fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), present in the cell wall of yeasts, such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae. They exert their ac...

Good article article about mannanoligosaccharides in Broiler Feeding. The mananoligascharide used was BG-MOS™ produced by GRASP.

Dear sir,

The following is the analysis of the product identified as MOS in the experiments. BGMOS is produced by GRASP.
