Biomin has been granted patent protection in the U.S. for its multi-species synbiotic PoultryStar.

By combining carefully selected, well-defined live strains of the genus Enterococcus, Pediococcus, Lactobacillus and Bifodbacterium with prebiotic fructooligosaccharides, the product promotes beneficial gut microflora in day-old chicks and birds of all ages, making them more resistant to pathogens, according to the company.
