The line of complementary feed additives based on dehydrated yeast Kluyveromyces marxianus fragilis B0399, confirmed for multiple health and performance benefits in different monogastric and polygastric animals, has been approved so far by feed regulatory institutes and ministries in USA, Europe, Brazil India and other extra-EU countries.
K. marxianus is a “traditional” but ‘‘non-conventional’’ dairy yeast, which has emerged from the shadow of its cousin species, Kluyveromyces lactis in the last two decades. This is mainly because of its traits that render it specifically suitable for industrial application, such as thermotolerance, the capacity to assimilate a wide range of sugars (lactose in particular), secretion of lytic enzymes, but also its association with an ancient “miraculous” fermented beverage, kefir, known for its numerous pro-health beffects for quite a long time.
Kluyveromyces marxianus fragilis B0399 has been isolated from kefir in mid nineties and studied in Turval Laboratories ever since. The substations scientific research done by Turval together with numerous Italian and foreign Universities and Institutes led, in 1999, to filing of the patent for the production of this specific strain.
Kluyveromyces marxianus fragilis B0399 improves livestock performance across different stages of life by increasing feed efficiency with direct effect on milk and meat production in dairy type animals and meat type animals.
In dairy cows it can improve milk yield (up to 4% more milk production)
In piglets, calves and beef cattle it can improve growth (auxinic effect; in piglets up to 7%)
In broilers it improves feeding efficacy /decrease food conversion index (up to 8,5%)
