Lallemand Animal Nutrition’s feed additive now available for use in all pigs in the European Union

Lallemand Animal Nutrition has announced its live yeast probiotic strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae boulardii CNCM I-1079 (LEVUCELL SB) is now authorised as a feed additive for use in all pigs in the European Union (EU) (Regulation (EU) No. 2019/892 and Regulation (EU) No. 2018/347). S. cerevisiae boulardii CNCM I-1079 is the only zootechnical additive authorised in the European Union for use in all pigs categories.

LEVUCELL SB is now available for all stages of the swine production cycle including: suckling piglets, pigs for fattening; boars; gilts; sows; and weaned piglets. It can also be used in all minor porcine species such as wild boars. To date, this is the only zootechnical feed additive in the European Union with such an extensive authorisation for swine production.

Benefits for the whole cycle
While the application of LEVUCELL SB in sows and piglets is recognised to support performance, recent research conducted in partnership with the French Agronomic Research Institute  (INRA) has shown very promising results on digestibility and growth performance in fattening pigs. These benefits were even greater under high temperatures, helping the animals to cope with the deleterious effects of heat stress. With high temperatures that can be encountered during summer, this new authorisation comes at a perfect time in the EU.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae boulardii CNCM I-1079 (LEVUCELL SB) is authorised in the EU as a gut flora stabiliser under the zootechnical feed additives category and is available in many other countries outside the EU. It has been used in animal nutrition for more than 20 years and has shown its benefits on gut function thanks to unique properties on microbiota regulation. In addition, it is proven to improve animals' intestinal structure and natural defenses.
