New data on S. cerevisiae boulardii in broiler presented at the 6th Mediterranean Poultry Summit
Jun 15, 2018
Lallemand Animal Nutrition presented new poultry nutrition studies in Torino, Italy, at the 6th Mediterranean Poultry Summit. One study confirmed the benefits of live yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. boulardii CNCM I-1079 on broiler chicken growth performance (ADG, FCR, final weight) and homogeneity, as well as the live yeast’s ability to lower mortality under standard farming conditions. S. cerevisiae var. boulardii CNCM I-1079 is the only probiotic authorized in the European Union (EU) as a feed additive for reduction of carcass contamination by Salmonella spp. in broiler chickens. S. cerevisiae var. boulardii CNCM I-1079 benefits are linked to its modes of action and its effects in the digestive tract, in particular, the unique properties supporting a balanced intestinal microbiota and reinforcing natural defenses. Thanks to Lallemand’s patented TITAN micro-encapsulation technology, the probiotic yeast is able to withstand most broiler feed pelleting processes. Lallemand was also a proud sponsor at the 6th Mediterranean Poultry Summit.
