Salmonella control in oilseed meals
Salmonella often affects rapeseed, soybean, and sunflower meal. A single treatment of Eastman Keitex LF1 on feed raw materials can eliminate Salmonella, saving time and money.The animal nutrition industry is under pressure to reduce the risk of Salmonella contamination, which is the second most common gastrointestinal infection in humans in the European Union. This pathogen can originate from poor feed hygiene or via contamination and can occur in every part of the value chain—production, transport, and storage.Salmonella can survive for long periods in feed raw material. Contaminated vessel batches can cause major disruption to compound feed production, and inefficient efforts to get rid of Salmonella can cause significant financial losses and delays.That's why Eastman developed Eastman Keitex LF1 organic acid blend for bacteria control. A single treatment can eliminate Salmonella. This type of animal feed preservation is an effective formaldehyde alternative for feed. Even better, moderate application of Keitex LF1 can prevent feed recontamination. The liquid product doesn't include water. It has been broadly tested and is metal friendly with extremely low corrosion. Eastman can work with you to create a tailored salmonella control program of Keitex LF1 application for feed biosecurity.
