The “in vitro” effectiveness of PlusProtect Digestive© against Salmonella confirmed

Recently,  the Laboratory of Poultry Disease of the Guangdong Academy of Agricultural Sciences (GDAAS), located in Guangzhou, South of China, carried out an in vitro trial that confirmed the effectiveness of PlusProtect Digestive© against Salmonella sp.

The strain of Salmonella used in the test was isolated from the intestine of a Chinese local breed of broiler called “three-yellow chicken”.

The conclusion obtained by the Guangdong Academy of Agricultural Sciences confirms the results achieved by our Product Development team in 2013 and supports the practical experiences that we have with PlusProtect Digestive© in the farms.

Salmonella in poultry is a global problem. It is an important food-born pathogen at it has been proven that maintaining a healthy digestive system helps to reduce the contamination of meat and eggs, thus contributing to a safer food chain.  Besides, Salmonella is transmitted vertically from hens to chicks, causing diseases and productive losses.
