Vevo Vitall is benzoic acid, which is simplified by a unique technology of DSM company and purity guaranteed of at least 99, 9%. Benzoic acid is an organic acid , which includes natural components of blackberries and raspberries and is used in human food products like toothpaste, soap, etc. Because of its high purity (absence of heavy metals and other harmful substances) as well as special protection (covered with a special DSM technology) VevoVitall is not corrosive or aggressive to other additives for animal feed, especially to vitamins.
VevoVitall is the most common acidulant in European Union countries with the most developed pig production (Denmark, Belgium, Germany, France, Netherlands)
There are several reasons for good character of acidulants. The most important are:
1) Effect of feed conservation and reducing the presence of mold, mildew and pathogenic bacteria in the feed.
2) VevoVitall consumption leads to low pH in all digestive tract and number of pathogenic bacteria (E. coli, K. pneumoniae, Staphylococcus, Lactobacillus salivarius ...)in higher percentage compare to all other known organic acids. It is important to note that the largest concentration of benzoic acid is in intestinal tract where are going the reduction of bacteria and adoption of improved nutrient, while other organic acids are oxidized in the stomach. It is confirmed the presence of benzoic acid in the faeces.
3) The third effect is VevoVitall-ammonia reduces about 35%, leading to a significant reduction of respiratory diseases,which are especially interesting in areas of sensitive categories - farrow. The mechanism of reduction of ammonia begins in the liver where is a reaction between glycine and benzoic acid forms hippuric acid . Hippuric acids excrete through the blood and urine by kidneys, it lowers the pH value, prevents bacterial enzyme urease activity and does let to ammonium (NH4) to change to ammonia (NH3). Lowering the pH value of urine also significantly reduces the risk of urinary tract infection.
There are results of investigations which show better animal health, reducing mortality, especially in the early days of piglets, higher productivity like weight gain of piglets up to 15%, and fattened up to 5% better conversion to 5%.
All these things make VevoVitall the economical advantageous acidulant, which for 1 euro investion gives back 3 euros (by improving animal production results, reducing mortality, reducing feeding days, reduced using of medicine)
