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.

Galliacid® S

Galliacid®S is the 2nd generation of Vetagro products for poultry. A synergistic microencapsulated blend of organic acids and nature-identical compounds.


Galliacid®S is the 2nd generation of Vetagro innovative products for poultry.
The efficacy of Galliacid® S in improving performance in poultry is due to the synergistic effect of its components: organic acids and flavouring compounds. The antibacterial power of the acids is enhanced by the disruptive action of flavouring compounds on the bacterial membrane.


The microencapsulation technology used by Vetagro, allows a slow release of the active principles as organic acids and natural identical compounds, along the gastro-intestinal tract modulating the microbial activity in healthy animals, resulting in improved growth performance.
Microencapsulation technology makes Galliacid® S a product safe and easy to handle, being non-corrosive.

    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.
