Amasil® formic acid: A safe feed hygiene additive

As the addition of antibiotics and preservatives in animal feed becomes restricted by tightening government regulations, meat producers must look to other methods to maintain optimal feed hygiene. Amasil® is a formic acid that inhibits pathogen growth while improving feed conversion, without the health concerns of preservatives like formaldehyde.

Benefits of feed acidification in field trials

Adding Amasil® to poultry feed vastly reduced Enterobacteriaceae levels and improved feed digestibility in a recent case study involving over 14.5 million birds. Formic acid as a feed hygiene practice reduces the risk of salmonella and E. coli transmission through feed while simultaneously producing a positive ROI.

Preventing recalls through feed hygiene

Food recalls can be financially and reputationally devastating for the companies involved, so it’s essential to mitigate the risks as much as possible. While feed mills are not the most common source of animal health problems, food safety is a multilayer approach and steps should be taken at all levels of production to prevent contamination. See how Amasil® can improve feed hygiene and reduce recall risk.
