For over 40 years, our microencapsulation technology empowered the delivery and the slow-release of active ingredients to the intestine of poultry, bypassing the gastric environment.Our scientific research demonstrated that it is possible to maximize performance by lowering the concentration of the compounds.

AviP® - protect P

AviP®-Protect P is a range of microencapsulated products based on the synergy between sorbic acid and nature-identical compounds.


Nature-identical compounds included in AviP-protect® P have documented efficacy against major food-borne pathogenic bacteria in vitro.

Efficacy of sorbic acid is increased by the synergy with these nature-identical compounds.


Microencapsulation allows the slow release of the active ingredients along the gastrointestinal tract and delivers them to the distal part of the small intestine in appreciable and effective amounts.

    Assessing intestinal health. In vitro and ex vivo gut barrier models of farm animals: benefits and limitations

    The concept of “gut health" is not well defined, but this concept has begun to play a very important role in the field of animal science. However, a clear definition of GIT health and the means by which to measure it are lacking. In vitro and ex vivo models can facilitate these studies, creating well-controlled and repeatable conditions to understand how to improve animal gut health.
