Chr. Hansen - BioPlus 2B The evaluation of BioPlus®2B in the registration process has been based on scientifically designed trials implemented by independent research institutes and trial farms. The results show significant improvements in production parameters and herewith meet the strict EU requirements for approval.

"The balance of the intestinal flora is a key success factor in turkey production. Turkeys are not only sensitive animals and but are difficult and costly to cure once they become diseased," says Peter Kürti, Marketing Manager. Kürti continues: "BioPlus®2B is a thermo-tolerant in-feed probiotic that beneficially affects the intestinal balance of turkeys and thus improves production results."

"The seal of approval by the EU gives conclusive validation to the benefits of BioPlus®2B. Chr. Hansen fulfilled the strict documentation requirements of the EU in regards to safety, stability and efficacy, and established BioPlus®2B as an effective tool for turkey producers, not only in Europe, but also in other regions around the world." concludes Peter Kürti.

Chr. Hansen develops products that improve livestock production through beneficially affecting the intestinal balance of farm animals, improving animal production in a natural and sustainable way.
