Deinove says it is finally edging towards commercial revenue generation and industrial scale manufacture of natural carotenoids for use in feed, dietary supplements and cosmetics. The Montpellier-based producer uses Deinococcus bacteria as host strains.
The Canadian producer has recently developed a synergistic alliance of inactivated yeast strains, from Saccharomyces cerevisiae to Cyberlindnera jadinii called Yang that is said to help with piglet weaning and pathogen challenges.
A new meta-analysis of 10 trials has provided “robust” evidence that Lallemand Animal Nutrition’s Levucell SB S. cerevisiae boulardii CNCM I-1079 yeast is effective at improving sow feed intake during lactation.
