DIGESTON-GREEN is produced by a controlled lactic acid fermentation, which is initiated by several specially selected strains of lactic acid bacteria. In the course of the fermentation the substrate (soybean meal) is converted and different metabolites (e.g. short chain peptides) which are known to enhance the mucosal immunity and thereby the general health, are produced by the bacteria.
Sophisticated drying techniques ensure that the fermentation flora is to a large extent preserved in the product so that DIGESTON-GREEN contains a high number of naturally occurring lactic acid bacteria.
DIGESTON-GREEN leads to an optimal balance of the bacteria involved in digestion when included into the feed. Due to the well functioning digestive tract performance and feed conversion of the animals are improved.
The crude fibre content in the grass and herbs is about 15 % (Cellulose, Hemicellulose and Lignin). It is known that these forms of fibre influence the digestive transit positively. In the processing special care is taken to preserve the substances contained in the grass and herbs, such as carotenoides, enzymes and trace elements, as they can be found in the fresh plants.
