Eastman Acitra Plus products, combining short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) and medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA), have an even broader effect, inhibiting both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria; they also reach the proximal gut.
GBM Performant, our coated calcium butyrate solution, and GBM Enhanced, our coated calcium butyrate combined with Ca-lactate, optimize gut physiology by supporting microbial balance and gut mucosal barrier function. Together, this results in healthy birds, efficient nutrient utilization, and optimal performance.
Improving water quality by acidification can improve litter quality and generally optimize the health status of the animal.
Eastman’s Protaq water acidification solutions help reduce the pH of the water and the stomach. Benefits include maintaining intestinal flora balance in poultry—which can result in wet litter reduction—and subsequent improvement of litter quality and broiler performance.
