EU approves yeast additive for horses
Alltech has been granted an EU license for the use of its yeast culture-based feed additive Yea-Sacc 1026 in horses. The product contains Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain 1026, which enhances the digestibility of feed. According to Alltech, it boosts the amount of energy released from the horseÂ´s diet and increases the amount of fiber digested by the animal. It also reduces the risk of digestive upset, says the company.
