Health promoting polysaccharides for feed.
PROVESTA® 024 is the cell wall fraction collected from Torula yeast and is especially rich in the polysaccharides beta-glucan and mannan, both known for their health promoting activities:
- Yeast beta-1,3/1,6 glucan has demonstrated immune modulating properties contributing to enhanced resistance to microbial infections
- Mannans can prevent the binding of pathogens and toxins to the intestinal mucus
- beta-Glucans and mannans are prebiotics stimulating the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut
Moreover, PROVESTA® 024 contains a high protein content. PROVESTA® 024 is added to feed to reduce feed conversion ratios replacing antibiotic growth promoters. It is usually applied at levels of 0.5-2 kg/ton feed.
