BIOMIN Launches Digestarom® DC: The Feed Converter

“Digestarom® DC represents a dramatically new approach to phytogenics,” stated Michael Noonan, Global Product Manager Phytogenics at BIOMIN. “We’ve concentrated our efforts on how to improve feed conversion, because we know that it’s a core concern for livestock and feed producers around the globe.”

According to the BIOMIN 2017 Phytogenic Feed Additives Survey, enhanced feed efficiency or a better feed conversion ratio (FCR) ranked as the most important benefit of phytogenics to the 1140 industry respondents.

Optimized feed conversion

“Feed conversion improvement is tied to a host of modern production issues, including profitability, improving the low digestibility of alternative feed ingredients, reducing antibiotics, counteracting stressors, and overcoming environmental challenges,” noted Mr Noonan.

“Digestarom® DC is the result of significant proprietary R&D and leverages the know-how of the longstanding and successful Digestarom product line,” he explained, adding “With a clear and documented mode of action, Digestarom® DC results in improved palatability, enhanced digestibility, reduced intestinal challenge, better animal product quality, and improved animal welfare.”

Introducing the Biomin® Duplex Capsule

Based on considerable research and development, Digestarom® DC incorporates the innovative Biomin® Duplex Capsule technology that ensures the plant-based active compounds are delivered where they are needed to be most effective.

“The unique encapsulation technology is designed for targeted release of specific phytogenic compounds throughout the digestive process, and demonstrates stability under common pelleting conditions,” stated Mr Noonan. “This ensures the triple action formulation can have the intended effects.”
