The science behind PoultryStar® – Mode of action

Probiotic strains

The probiotic strains patented by BIOMIN were thoroughly investigated and isolated from the gut of healthy birds, for excellent host adaptability and efficient use in poultry. The strains were specifically selected for their ability to maintain a healthy gut microbial population under challenging environmental conditions and have demonstrated the highest efficacy in the competitive exclusion of pathogenic bacteria.

Chicory

The prebiotic fructooligosaccharides (FOS) were tested in our laboratories for their ability to selectively stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial microflora in the large intestine, thus improving host health.
