Innovations in Feed Efficiency

During the evolution process of certain plant species, their secondary compounds were formed and selected as agents of protection against attacks by bacteria, viruses and fungi. Due to the simplicity of the molecules, several different modes of action are possible, which makes the development of microbial resistance highly unlikely.

For millenniums, human civilizations have explored the antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and olfactory properties of secondary plant compounds. In recent decades, science has dedicated to study the application of these substances in animal nutrition.

EW Nutrition offers its products based on secondary plant compounds, focusing primarily on the increase in animal productivity.

Beside their positive effects on performance parameters, these substances are also a tool to reduce the use of antibiotics and therefore preventing the establishment of microbial resistance.
