Alquermold Natural L reduces the contamination of Clostridium, E. coli and Salmonella by more than 96% 2021-05-18
An in vitro trial demonstrates the powerful microbiocidal effect of the product compared to other chemical products
Recently, Biovet S.A. has carried out an in vitro trial which demonstrates the efficacy of the natural antimicrobial, Alquermold Natural, against Aspergillus, Clostridium, E. coli and Salmonella. Commonly, products based on combinations of different organic acids and formaldehyde are used for this purpose. However, they have certain disadvantages, such as corrosiveness and high doses. The effect of these two products was compared with that of Alquermold Natural in the trial.
Alquermold Natural is a natural product with bactericide and fungicide activity, suitable for its use in animal production. It works as a natural preservative for feed and acts as an intestinal biocide promoting the welfare of digestive flora.
Alquermold Natural reduces Clostridium, E. coli and Salmonella up to 96%
The trial was carried out in an independent laboratory of Latin America. Two substrates were used, ground corn and balanced feed, with two level of microbiological contamination (moderate and high). In the test, the use of Alquermold Natural L (0,5 L/t) was compared with a product based on organic acids (1L/t) and other product which combines organic acids and formaldhyde (2L/t).
Results showed a powerful microbicide effect of Alquermold Natural L. It was able to reduce the contamination of Clostridium, E. coli and Salmonella by more than 96%, and up to 85% of Aspergillus contamination, a mycotoxin-producer fungus. The effect of Alquermold Natural L is superior even at half the dose than the other products tested whether at moderate or high contamination. In addition, we should consider that the product is totally natural, it is not corrosive, it is not harmful for machinery, animals, or workers; and it does not leave residues in animal products.
In conclusion, the natural antimicrobial, Alquermold Natural, is consolidated as an effective alternative to organic acids because it has a long-term effect, broad spectrum of action and it is a natural and safe product. With its use, the possible adverse effects of formaldehyde and the restrictions of use that it presents in different Latin American countries, as well as in other locations worldwide, are avoided.
