Arabinoxylo-oligosaccharide (AXOS) is a feed ingredient composed of oligosaccharides from arabinoxylan. AXOS is a new generation of soluble prebiotic fibers to be launched in 2018 obtained from the bran of corn through a state-of-the-art fiber separation and enzymatic extraction process located in Dunaföldvár, Hungary, operated by Pannonia Ethanol. AXOS is GMO, gluten and antibiotic free and is considered a feed material according to EU regulation. Moreover, its composition is well documented, constant and guaranteed throughout the year, thus ensuring a reliable supply.
Soluble prebiotic fibers in powdered form are easy to use and compatible with different manufacturing processes in animal nutrition such as pelletization and extrusion. In addition to having superior technical properties and tolerance, soluble fibers are known to be selectively fermented by colonic microflora, thus contributing to the proliferation of beneficial bacteria in the colon and inhibiting the growth of pathogenic bacterial populations. Soluble fibers are increasingly the perfect solution for feed producers looking for alternative methods to prevent pathogen colonisation and eliminate the use of Antibiotic Growth Promoters (AGPs).
A growing body of evidence and studies show that soluble fibers can:
> 10,000 tons of AXOS available starting in 2018
Trial amounts of AXOS are available now
Lower cost than any competing product
The best prebiotic at the best price. Period.
