The Alterion® advantage

The first co-developed probiotic for poultry from the Adisseo and Novozymes partnership.

When it comes to consistency, nothing delivers like Alterion®. Its innovative formulation ensures a homogeneous mix, and its dual action Bacillus subtilis probiotic strain consistently provides good gut balance and growth performance indicators.

The strength of spores

Alterion® contains spores of Bacillus subtilis DSM29784. The naturally-formed spores protect the bacilli from pressure, acidity and temperature. This makes Alterion® stable under harsh pelleting and gastric conditions, thus ensuring efficiency where it matters most: in the animal’s gut. 

The innovative formulation of Bacillus subtilis DSM29784 spores enables a homogeneous distribution of the spores when mixed with a calcium carrier. This ensures low dust, low spore sedimentation, no de-mixing and a homogeneous mix of active agents in premixes and feed every time.
