AviPlus® P

AviPlus®P es un aditivo del alimento para mejorar la tasa de crecimiento y la eficiencia alimentaria, de acuerdo con las regulaciones de la CE 849/2012.


AviPlus® P es la tercera generación de productor innovadores para aves de Vetagro. AviPlus® P es un aditivo alimenticio para mejorar la tasa de crecimiento y la eficiencia alimenticia de aves sanas.

Las condiciones como el estrés, enteritis y disbacteriosis, que afectan la salud intestinal, la integridad y funcionamiento del intestino, tienen un impacto sobre la eficiencia alimentaria. AviPlus® P puede ayudar a restaurar la integridad de la mucosa y epitelio intestinal, y así mejorar el desempeño en el crecimiento y FCR en aves. El mecanismo de acción de AviPlus® P está basado en las propiedades únicas de sus ingredientes que mejoran de manera sinérgica la función de la barrera intestinal y así aumentando la eficiencia de la absorción de nutrientes y el crecimiento.

AviPlus® P es totalmente trazable en pre mezclas, alimentos completos y aun a lo largo del tracto intestinal. La innovación absoluta de AviPlus® P resultado de 30 años de experiencia en el mercado global ha sido probada por patentes internacionales.


La comisión de la UE aprobó el uso de AviPlus® P como un aditivo zootécnico con el número de identificación 4d3 para una producción de aves segura y efectiva. El desempeño zootécnico de AviPlus® P, revisada y aprobada por EFSA bajo condiciones de la UE, aumenta la tasa de crecimiento y mejora la eficiencia alimentaria en aves sanas. AviPlus® P es seguro para animales, consumidores y el medio ambiente como lo declara la comunidad Europea.

Adding thymol to a broiler diet influences in vitro cecal fermentation and in vivo growth performances

Piva A., Grilli E., Casadei G., Biagi G.
In: (2004) Proceeding of ADSA-ASAS Joint Meeting; p.325. July, 26-29, Saint Louis, MO.

Thymol and other essential oils have antimicrobial properties and may be considered among the alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters. We evaluated the effect of thymol in broiler in vitro cecal fermentations and broiler growth performances. In the in vitro study, broiler cecal inoculum was incubated for 24h in graduated syringes and vessels containing a standard…

Role of carvacrol and cynnamaldehyde in broiler cecal fermentations.

Grilli E., Albonetti S., Piva A.
In: (2006) Proceeding from XII European Poultry Conference; p. 463. Verona, Italy, 10-14 Sept.

Aim of the study was to investigate the role of carvacrol and cynnamaldehyde in modulating cecal microflora in broilers in an in vitro fermentation system. Cecal liquor was collected at the slaughter house, transported to the laboratory and immediately anaerobically diluted with a buffered solution; the so-obtained inoculum was dispensed in 10 ml syringes and…

Microencapsulation allows slow release of organic acids in the GI tract of broilers.

Grilli, E., C. Bodin, P.P. Gatta, M. Tedeschi, and A. Piva.
In: (2007) XVI European Symposium on Poultry Nutrition. August, 26-30, Strasbourg, France.

Aim of the study was o investigate intestinal concentrations of citric and sorbic acid (OA) from a microencapsulated blend and the possible consequences on intestinal fermentations. Twelve male ROSS 508 broilers were selected from 2 dietary treatments: a control diet (CTR), or the control diet added with a microencapsulated blend of citric and sorbic acid…

Aviplus treatment improves growth efficiency in broilers and swine but does not affect intestinal populations of experimentally inoculated with Salmonella

T. R. Callaway, E. Grilli, T. S. Edrington, N. Krueger, R. Anderson, D. W. Pitta, W. E. Pinchak, and A. Piv
In: (2010) Proceeding of ADSA-CSAS-ASAS Joint Annual Meeting. July, 11-15, Denver, CO.

Organic acids improve growth efficiency in food animals, and can impact the microbial ecology of the gastrointestinal tract. Thus it has been suggested that they could be used to reduce foodborne pathogenic bacterial populations before animals enter the food chain. This study was undertaken to determine the effect of a commercial microencapsulated organic acid product…

Organic Acids and Their Role in Reduce Foodborne Pathogens in Food Animals

E. Grilli, A. Piva
In: In: On-Farm Strategies to Control Foodborne Pathogens. Callaway, T. R., and T. S. Edrington (Ed.s). NOVA Science Publishers, New York. Pp 183-210

Organic acids (OA) are used since long as food preservative agents, and, in more recent times, as feed additives. The compelling need to use OA in feed date back to the last two decades since the extensive use of antibiotics in farming, both growth promoters (AGP) and therapeuticals, caused concerns on the incidence of antibiotic-resistant…

Effect of Microencapsulated Blend of Citric Acid, Sorbic Acid, Thymol and Vanillin on Growth Performance of Commercial Broilers.

R. Manini, R. Barea, P. Pilkington, A. Piva
In: (2013) 2nd International Poultry Meat Congress. April 24-28, Antalya, Turkey.

Aim of the study was the investigation of alternative products which can modulate the intestinal microflora beyond the stomach barrier, obtaining animal growth performance comparable to the one obtainable with antibiotic growth promoters. The microencapsulation of organic acids (OA) and natural identical compounds (NICs) in a hydrogenated vegetable lipid matrix can modify the site of…

Effects of pelleting temperature on microencapsulated AviPlus® and the gastrointestinal recovery of thymol in broiler chickens.

R. Barea, F. Rudeaux, B. Tugnoli, A. Piva
In: (2013) 19th European Symposium on Poultry Nutrition. Potsdam, Germany, August 26-29.

Thermal treatment of poultry feed is common practice to improve the biological and nutritional value of some ingredients (i.e., soybean) and to sanitize the feed from Salmonella or prevent pathogens and spoilage bacteria contamination (LEAVER, 2008; JONES, 2011). Pelleting temperature varies widely among commercial feed production plants and, depending also on geographical distribution, can range…

Effects of a microencapsulated feed additive on growth performance and sanitary status of broiler chickens.

R. Barea, P. Fantinati, A. Piva
In: (2015) 11emes Journées de la Recherche Avicole et Palmipèdes à Foie Gras. Tours, 25th-26th March.

The aim of this study was to compare the growth performance and sanitary status of chickens receiving a control diet (CTR) and a feed containing a combination of citric acid, sorbic acid, thymol and vanillin microencapsulated (zootechnical additive 4d 3, EU Regulation No. 849/2012; AVIP). The trial was conducted in a commercial breeding (Premariacco, Italy)…
