Keys to understanding the problem of Salmonella and its solution.
Eggs, meat and milk can play an important roll on Salmonella transmission to Humans. It usually occurs when uncontrolled sources of food reach food chain thus creating an infection which causes gastrointestinal problems.
Strong presence in live stock
It has been established that Salmonella prevalence is very high, from 30% to 60% of the herds in a given area are considered as carriers. Unattended, it will represent a constant source of contamination, as the farmer may ignore that his animals are bearers of the bacteria.
A great risk for farmers and consumers
Many countries in the world, as well the European Union, are on the way to reduce antibiotics as growth prometers, creating a lack of confidence to the farmers. With this scenario, it has become necessay to extreme sanitary controls at farm level, as well as in animals and feed, in order to avoid and prevent outbreaks of pathogenic microorganisms.
There are three different situations at farm level A, B, C.
More research, better solutions
The development of SALMOSAN has been result of team work between public and private research institutions and companies. These organisms are the IRTA (Research Institute of Agro-alimentary Technologies) and CIDEM (Business for Innovation and Development), together with ITPSA.
Keys of the new product
SALMOSAN is a natural product, 100% vegetable origin, obtained from the Carob tree through a specific process of fractionation and purification. SALMOSAN is added to the feed, and its mechanism of action is based on the barrier concept, since it blocks the process of bacteria fimbrial adherence to the enterocite, thus avoiding bacteria colonization at gut level, and creating a real and irreversible effect.
