EU authorized MAXBIOS probiotic for use in weaned piglets

The European Union has authorized MAXBIOS, a preparation of Bacillus subtilis DSM 28343, for the use in weaned piglets until August 2028.


MAXBIOS is a probiotic preparation of the spore-forming probiotic strain Bacillus subtilis DSM 28343. Already in 2016, MAXBIOS has been approved as a feed additive for chickens for fattening and has achieved convincing results in the improvement of gut health since then. Now, the EU followed EFSA's recommendations and authorized MAXBIOS for use in weaned piglets. Several trials showed that MAXBIOS has a great potential to increase weaning weight, daily live weight gain and the feed conversion ratio in weaners. MAXBIOS is assigned to the additive category ‘zootechnical additives’ as a ‘gut flora stabilizer’.

New additions to the MAXACID range: Monoglycerides (MAXACID MCM)


Monoglycerides (MCMs) are gaining more and more importance in animal nutrition, in addition to conventional organic acids such as formic acid, propionic acid and lactic acid.

We have therefore expanded our range of acids to include MAXACID MCM, which consists of a mixture of esterified, medium-chain fatty acids. For more background information please click here...


Current test results on the use of MAXLAC in sows


A paper on the “Effect of probiotic supplementation with Enterococcus faecium DSM 7134 on sow performance“ was presented at the 14th BOKU Symposium in Vienna.


Trials have confirmed improved intestinal health and particularly high sow performance throughout the entire reproductive cycle when sows were given a supplement of E. faecium DSM 7134 in their feed.
