Animal nutrition and health

Plant-based extracts for healthy and safe animals

In addition to valuable components in pharmacologic applications, vegetable extracts that are rich in antioxidants are the right solution to balance the diet of animals, such as cattle, pigs, and poultry.

Their use in the animal diet allows the reintroduction of those natural elements that years of large scale farming practices have gradually eliminated and avoided the use of products of chemical origin.

The result of years of research and experiments performed in co-operation with the main Italian institute responsible for animal health and important universities has made Silvateam’s vegetable extracts and important requirements for a more natural and safe supplement in animal nutrition. Better animal health contributes directly and indirectly to the quality of food. The environmental and agricultural regulations must be adapted accordingly to meet this trend. This is a growing requirement among families and consumers but also between producers and institutions, as proven by the standards of the UE bodies on those aspects related to BSE.

Silvafeed® products contain exclusively water-soluble vegetable extracts: polyphenols, simple sugars, lignin, cellulose, hemicelluloses, and mineral salts. No chemicals are added during the manufacturing process.

Other elements (free sugars as glucose, fructose, and xylose) provide energy and nutrition, whereas the mineral part, also important, is necessary to satisfy the requirements of an efficient and balanced metabolism.
