Intest-Plus®

Butyrate concepts for monogastrics and calves

Butyrate: The Clean Growth Promoter

Butyrate is a scientifically established essential ingredient to stimulate the development, integrity and normal function of the gut. Furthermore, in calves rumen development is stimulated by using butyrate in the starter feed.

Butyrate is a key energy source for the intestinal villi and rumen papillae, and plays a vital role in balancing a healthy intestinal flora. Butyrate promotes growth, feed efficiency and directly beneficially stimulates the immune system. In this way, butyrate functions as a natural growth promoter.

Balanced intestinal flora and good gut health strengthens the gut defensive barrier. In addition, together with butyrate’s direct positive effect on the immune system, this means butyrate makes the animal more resistant to pathogens.

Although the value of butyric acid is well established, it cannot be applied directly due to volatility and smell. This is why Palital formulates butyric acid into butyrate salts, and subsequently into suitable feed ingredients. Palital does this within its own production facilities, where raw ingredients and products are quality controlled at every step.

Intest-Plus® products contain either sodium butyrate or calcium butyrate, or a unique combination of both. Products are also available with different butyrate concentrations. Within the Intest-Plus® range, there is also two types of coating. The first is Palital’s patented stomach-stable matrix coating, which ensures gradual release of butyrate in the gut. The second type of coating is an odourless film coating, which is used with powder products to reduce dust formation.

With the broad Intest-Plus® range of products, you have the best ability to find the right product for your needs. However, in addition to our standard products, custom-made combinations, concentrations and appearances can also be made to meet your specific requirements.
