The need to guarantee swine absorption of a correct amount of nutrients in the intestine cannot disregard the degradation by the swine microflora. For over 40 years our scientific research has set the goal to improve the swine bypass so that a lower concentration of active ingredients in the diet leads to maximizing performance.

AviP® - protect S

AviP® – Protect S is a combination of sorbic acid and botanicals, microencapsulated in a lipid matrix, specifically designed to control zoonotic pathogens in swine production.

Sorbic acid is a food preservative with strong anti-microbial properties. Nature-identical compounds included in AviP® – Protect S 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.

    Intestinal health: organic acids and pure botanicals can be extremely useful

    The impact that a molecule can have on animal metabolism and physiological functions is strictly linked to different modes of action of the molecule itself. These activities must be studied and well known to use the nutrition favoring both animal health and production effectively.

    Thymol as an Adjuvant to Restore Antibiotic Efficacy and Reduce Antimicrobial Resistance and Virulence Gene Expression in Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli Strains

    The aim of this study was to investigate the potential adjuvant effect of thymol to re-establish antibiotic efficacy against highly resistant ETEC field strains. Secondly, we evaluated the modulation of virulence and antibiotic resistance genes.

    Dual Antimicrobial Effect of Medium-Chain Fatty Acids against an Italian Multidrug Resistant Brachyspira hyodysenteriae Strain

    In this study we tested four antibiotics (tylosin, lincomycin, doxycycline, and tiamulin) and medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA; hexanoic, octanoic, decanoic, and dodecanoic acid) against an Italian field strain of B. hyodysenteriae and the ATCC 27164 strain as reference.
