PMI Nutritional Additives announces the launch of Peloton yeast feed additive to help livestock producers maintain rumen health and digestive efficiency. Peloton yeast feed additive is a thermal stable blend of Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast and PMI’s Fulfill feed additive, the company says.
“We’re excited to offer a new yeast product that gives livestock producers a cost-effective tool to support feed intake and optimal gut integrity,” Peter Karnezos, Ph.D., stated in a news release from the company. He is the director, research and technical services at PMI Nutritional Additives, a Land O’Lakes Inc. business focused solely on feed additives. “Achieving gut integrity means nutrients are more efficiently used to support production goals.”
Karnezos said the use of active live yeast, combined with Fulfill feed additive, makes Peloton yeast feed additive unique. The proprietary blend is encapsulated to protect the live yeast during pelletizing and storage so the yeast is activated directly in the rumen. The activated yeast supports healthy digestive activity and facilitates microbial protein flow from the rumen to the lower GI tract.
In addition to the documented benefits of live yeast in stabilizing rumen pH, PMI said functional ingredients like Mannans (MOS) and β-Glucans help support gut health and integrity.
Peloton yeast feed additive is effective in the diets of dairy and beef cattle, sheep and goats, equine, swine and poultry. To learn more about PMI Nutritional Additives and its products, please visit www.PMINutritionalAdditives.com
