Progut® is a patented (EP 0946108) yeast-based feed ingredient aimed at maintaining good gut health and productivity of animals. Progut® contains both yeast cell wall and extract parts and is rich in mannoproteins, betaglucans, nucleotides and peptides.
What makes Progut® unique is the hydrolysis process used to break down the yeast cell. Yeast cells from the brewing industry are deactivated by heat treatment and then hydrolysed to release the soluble, bioactive particles which act as its active ingredients.
Progut® remains stable at high temperatures and during storage. Therefore it is ideally suited for use in pelleted feed, in pre mixes or in home mixed feeds.
Progut® has proven its efficacy in both institutional and commercial trials carried out on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
