Trade agreement of ITPSA with the company SILO
ITPSA is pleased to announce the trade agreement with the company SILO, by which ITPSA becomes the official distributor of SILO products for the markets of Spain and Portugal.
SILO is an Italian company considered as an international referent in research, development and production of monoglycerides of short and medium-chain fatty acids for animal nutrition. As a result of this research, conducted for over 15 years, SILO has obtained several international patents on these products, especially linked to the production and use of 1-monoglycerides of butyric acid, lauric acid, propionic acid, capric, caprylic and the combination of these.
1-monoglycerides of short and medium-chain fatty acids have shown broad spectrum antimicrobial efficacy against fungi and bacteria. Moreover, this effectiveness is not subject to the effect of pH variations in stomach and intestine of the animal, ensuring its effect in later sections of the intestine.
Throughout these years SILO has made a variety of field tests that prove the antimicrobial efficacy of these products and their beneficial effects on intestinal health of the animals. Therefore, we are confident that the information and technical support that accompanies the development of these products will allow an adequate response to the specific needs of our customers. All of this aimed at reducing the use of antibiotic products and the improvement of production parameters on farms.
These products are available in both solid and liquid form, for use on ruminants, monogastric animals, pet food and aqua. In addition, these products are categorized as raw materials within the framework of the European Union, which facilitates their incorporation into various raw materials and feed without a significant impact on the information feed labelling.
The addition of 1-monoglycerides of short and medium-chain fatty acids in the portfolio of ITPSA antimicrobials, allows us to complete strategically an already wide range of products for feed protection against microbial contamination and intestinal health enhancer.
