Protecting animal health

Antibiotic resistance in the food chain is becoming increasingly problematic and threatens livestock health. Our businesses are finding alternatives to reduce the need for antibiotics use in farm animals.

Ohly is tackling the issue by introducing yeast beta-glucans into animal feed. This stimulates animals’ immune systems, reducing bacterial infections and the need for antibiotics. Ohly’s yeast-based specialty products that improve animal performance are a sustainable solution to help to reduce the use of antibiotics and emissions of greenhouse gases by improving the nutritional composition of feed.

Animal nutrition

As pet owners increasingly look for clean label, non-GMO, natural products, and safe supplements to enhance their pets’ diets, ABITEC provides manufacturers with a full range of nutritional ingredients to meet pet food needs without compromising flavour. Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) may provide cognitive enhancement, sustainable energy, increase thermogenesis, and promote prolonged satiety for cats, dogs, and other companion pets.

Clinical nutrition

ABITEC’s lipids and lipid emulsifiers may provide sustainable energy sources to patients in a clinical setting. Balancing energy needs and mitigating malabsorption issues can be important for patients with disease, and ABITEC's lipids provide macronutrients compatible with a wide range of formulations.
