Eastman Protural—increased performance for piglets

During the postweaning period, piglets are extremely susceptible to all kinds of digestive disorders because of environmental, physiological, social, and dietary stress factors. The change from sow’s milk to solid feed places a particularly heavy burden on the immature digestive system of weaned piglets. The supplementation of sodium benzoate is an effective feeding strategy to alleviate postweaning complications without using antibiotics.

What does Eastman Protural offer?

Improved performance

Unlike short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), sodium benzoate has a regulating effect on the bacteria equilibrium in the acidic as well as in the more neutral environment throughout the intestinal tract, helping maintain a healthy gastrointestinal microflora.

Trials confirm that the supplementation of sodium benzoate at 4 kg per ton improves postweaning growth performance. Contact us to learn more.
