The study published in the Journal of Applied Poultry Research highlights the significant benefits of MOS (mannan oligosaccharides) supplementation in poultry diets. MOS, derived from the outer portion of yeast cell walls, offers multiple advantageous modes of action, including pathogen adsorption (agglutination), improved intestinal integrity (such as increased villi height), and immune modulation.

In the study, diets were administered in three phases, with treatments including a control group and various levels of supplementation. Specifically, diets supplemented with Bio-Mos at 1.0, 0.5, and 0.5 kg/ton in starter, grower, and finisher feeds, respectively, resulted in a significant increase in body weight at 21, 28, 35, and 42 days compared to the control group. This research underscores the efficacy of MOS supplementation, particularly Protimix Biomos, Protimix Biomos 500 and Protimix Biomos (WS), in promoting growth performance and overall health in poultry. By enhancing intestinal integrity, bolstering immune function, and mitigating pathogenic threats, these products offer a promising solution for optimizing poultry production and welfare.
