Modulates Intestinal Microbiota
Reduces Pathogenic Bacteria
The use of feed supplement containing SCFA & MCFA is proposed as a valuable alternative to antibiotics in the feed and can be used to non-antibiotic growth promoter. The antimicrobial activity of Lauric acid can be classified under the following mechanisms:
- Destruction or disruption of a cell membrane of the gram positive bacteria and lipid-coated viruses by physio-chemical process
- Inteferencew with cellular process, such as bacterial cell signal transduction and gene transcription process
The addition of DICOSAN® in animal farming & production.
- Tends to increase final body weight
- Tends to reduce feed conversion ratio
Dicosan® significantly decreases the count of Coliformis, E.Coli and Enterobacteria in ileum and caecum.
