Latest Trend Gut Health: LipoVital - to support intestinal health and resistance

LipoVital is of particular interest to manufacturers who want to reduce the use of antibiotics, and improve intestinal health and resistance.

Together with partners from the compound feed industry, Berg+Schmidt investigated its effects in piglet rearing. LipoVital offers a very high content of monoglycerides and therefore has specific antiviral and antibacterial properties. A trial with broilers at the University of Rostock confirmed the excellent effect of LipoVital on Clostridia perfringens. Both the intestinal flora and the performance parameters were positively influenced in this challenge trial. Studies at the Pipestone Applied Research Institute and the Cornell University Animal Health Center also demonstrated the high antiviral activity of LipoVital monoglycerides. In contrast to free fatty acids, the products are non-corrosive and show high acceptance in young animals thanks to their neutral taste and smell.

LipoVital Monoglycerides can be supplied as a high-purity raw material and as a customized compound. They are very effective even in low dosis and inclusion rate can be increased if necessary.

Berg+Schmidt is currently working with renowned institutes on further trials for the use of LipoVital in aquaculture, with initial promising results in salmon and shrimp feeding. In addition to the focus on resistance, the LipoVital portfolio with its medium-chain triglycerides offers top-quality, highly bioavailable energy sources for young animals. These so-called MCT oils are fractional energy suppliers for milk replacers and starter feeds.
