Tannin 50 is a spray-chilled, tannin-rich product derived from chestnut wood, encapsulated for a consistent release of the active ingredient all along the gastro-intestinal tract and avoiding the anti-nutritional effects of non-protected tannin products. Due to their natural, intrinsic astringency properties, tannins are beneficial in improving manure consistency and overall barn environment.
Key Advantages of Encapsulated Tannins
Tannins form strong compounds with proteins and other macro-molecules creating a layer protecting animal cells.
Stabilize gastro-intestinal and feed pH
Thanks to their acid pH, tannins can acidify intestinal content thus supporting a healthy microbiome.
Tannins can reduce intestinal peristalsis allowing for a better absorption of nutrients and liquids.
