Digestarom® DC Duplex Capsule Receives EU Zootechnical Authorization for Poultry Species
Getzersdorf / Lower Austria 16 July 2020 – Leading animal nutrition firm BIOMIN has received EU zootechnical authorization for the Digestarom® DC Duplex capsule in its next-generation phytogenic feed additive product, Digestarom® DC Power for use in poultry species.
“We are delighted to receive EU authorization of the Duplex Capsule in Digestarom® DC for use in chicken for fattening, chickens reared for laying and minor avian species diets which further confirms the improvements phytogenic feed additive products can have on poultry performance,” commented Dr Antonia Tacconi, Global Product Line Manager Phytogenics at BIOMIN.
“This authorization allows poultry producers all over the EU to include Digestarom® DC in their diets with confidence in the expected results. This proprietary mix of plant-based substances delivers performance benefits in poultry species as confirmed by the numerous supporting scientific and commercial trials.”
Digestarom® DC has the potential to increase the growth performance of broilers, laying hens and minor poultry species reared up to the point of lay. It does this through supporting gut health leading to higher productivity and therefore economic gains.
The triple-action formulation of Digestarom® DC includes:
- Promoting appetizing and endogenous secretions
- Gut microbiota modulation
- Gut protection
All of this is incorporated in the BIOMIN® Duplex Capsule technology which ensures the plant-based active compounds are protected during the rigors of feed processing and released slowly throughout the gastrointestinal tract for maximum impact.
Teamwork delivers success
“This authorization has been achieved thanks to the dedication of the whole BIOMIN team, including experts in the R&D, regulatory, sales and technical teams. Through unprecedented dedication to our company mission, we continue to bring innovative products like Digestarom® DC to market, making significant changes to the performance of poultry production units in the EU and around the globe,” continued Dr Tacconi.
The EU dossier for Digestarom® DC as a zootechnical feed additive in broilers was submitted in April 2018. Customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa were introduced to the product at EuroTier in November 2018 following a successful launch to the Asian market at VIV Asia the previous year.
Work will now begin in earnest to ensure all European poultry producers are getting the most out of their flocks by including Digestarom® DC in their diets.Dr Antonia Tacconi, Global Product Line Manager Phytogenics at BIOMIN
