Mushrooms are gathering more attention for their numerous health benefits. Funginal is a novel feed product based on proprietary mushroom mycelium fermented on rye. The fungi species used is the Agaricus blazei Murril, also known as the Sun Mushroom, originating in the Brazilian rain forest. This mushroom has been widely recognized for its health-promoting properties in humans and animal, including natural defense system modulation, prebiotic and antioxidant effects.
Fungal fermented products contain several compounds that play a role in gastrointestinal health and pathogenic bacteria control. Microbial enzymes produced during fermentation will degrade polysaccharides from feed material into indigestible and bioactive oligosaccharides. Other bioactive components are β-glucans, which have been demonstrated to have immunomodulatory properties and to support intestinal health and microbiota balance.
Maintains health and performance
Reduces the reliance on antibiotics
Mitigating negative effects of
E. coli And Salmonella infections
How Funginal works:
- Binds Enterobacteriaceae, such as E. coli and Salmonella in the gastrointestinal tract thereby helping to reduce their multiplication and faecal excretion. In addition, rye was found to have a strong binding affinity to pathogenic E. coli.
- Generates a prebiotic effect and contributes to the growth of commensal bacteria.
- Supports the natural defense system.
- Improves performance.
