BIOMIN to Introduce Latest Phytogenic Innovation Digestarom® DC at EuroTier

Digestarom® DC introduces targeted delivery of plant-based compounds that aim to maximize beneficial effects in farm animals,” stated Antonia Tacconi, Global Product Manager Phytogenics at BIOMIN. “Pelleting stability, ease of handling and a documented mode of action all make Digestarom® DC the next generation of phytogenic solutions of choice for poultry and swine producers.” 

Optimized feed conversion

Certain combinations of plant-derived bioactive substances can have synergistic effects that translate into a number of benefits when applied to farm animal diets.  

 “Profitability, improving the low digestibility of alternative feed ingredients, antibiotic reduction, counteracting stressors, and overcoming environmental challenges—these are a host of modern production issues that are all tied to feed conversion improvement,” stated Dr Tacconi.  

The latest campaign marks the second phase of a global rollout. Digestarom® DC was initially introduced at VIV Asia in 2017 with the slogan ‘The Feed Converter’ and has seen uptake by customers in markets across Asia Pacific. 

The Digestarom® brand has had commercial success and been applied to farm animal diets since 1989. 
 
“Digestarom® DC builds upon considerable research and development from the BIOMIN Research Center, along with the knowledge and proven results embedded in the Digestarom® product line,” explained Dr Tacconi.  

Triple-action formulation

Digestarom® DC incorporates the innovative Biomin® Duplex Capsule technology that ensures the plant-based active compounds are delivered where they are needed to be most effective. 

“We designed the unique encapsulation technology in Digestarom® DC for targeted release of specific phytogenic compounds throughout the digestive process in order to ensure they can have the desired effects,” stated Dr Tacconi. 

“The new triple-action formulation of Digestarom® DC results in numerous benefits when applied to farm animal diets, including: improved palatability, enhanced digestibility, reduced intestinal challenge, better animal product quality, and improved animal welfare,” she added. 

BIOMIN has submitted two dossiers for zootechnical authorization of Digestarom® DC in the European Union, for both broilers and piglets.

Campaign continues at EuroTier 2018

BIOMIN continues the global introduction of the new Digestarom® DC at EuroTier Hall 22 Booth A27 from 13 to 15 November 2018 in Hannover, Germany.
