Optimizing animal and production benefits

Functional fatty acids are a form of feed additive that goes beyond nutritional value to offer broader animal and performance benefits, helping to support efficient and sustainable livestock production in alignment with new marketplace expectations. The latest science-driven, feed-ingredient based solutions are built for the new world of judicious use approaches to antibiotics and bio-based enhancements of animal care, with innovative options offering a fit for every farm and production approach.


is a functional feed additive. It is available in tailored formulations for different types of poultry, as well as for swine and ruminants, with versatility to support a broad range of production systems and market opportunities. Biotica fits well with advanced strategies designed to support health, well-being and overall performance of animals, including those raised under strict judicious use principles regarding the use of antibiotics.

Biotica, a medium chain fatty acid (MCFA) technology. Chain length of MCFAs range from 6 to 12 carbons in length. Biotica is unique in that the MCFAs are in a free and activated structure, meaning that there is no acidification or lipase process required. With species specific custom blends, CBS ensures the correct custom blend of MCFAs. Working against pathogenic bacteria, improving immune status, feeding the villi, and improving the villus:crypt ratio.

Carbon Chain Length C6 - C12


Without AGPs supplementation, producers must find alternate ways to maintain animal health and growth performance, short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) play a important role. Canadian Bio-Systems uses lipid encapsulated technology for targeted slow release throughout the gastrointestinal tract. Intestinal tissue stimulation, mitigation of pathogen transmission, and improved growth performance are a few of the benefits of supplementing diets with SCFA technology.

In monogastric species a lower gastrointestinal tract pH is desirable. It may be necessary to help animals attain lower the pH. With the inclusion of Maxi-Cid producers get a blend of acids which contribute different beneficial factors ranging from pH changes and increased intake to antimicrobial properties leading to increased health and performance.


is a uniquely tailored functional fatty acid formulation including butyric acid that provides a highly efficient energy source swine with additional gut health advantages. This feed technology features a high quality double-coated shell, which ensures the energy source reaches its release target in the small intestine.


is a leading acidifier for swine and poultry diets. It is designed to reduce and optimize pH levels for superior efficiency and performance. As a product based on the concept of multiples, it includes not just one acidifying agent but rather a blend of carefully selected acids with different modes of action, which complement one another for greater overall benefits.
