What is Amaferm?

Amaferm® is a natural feed additive that acts as a prebiotic. It delivers more microbial protein and energy to the animal through increased digestibility by stimulating fungal branching, microbial enzyme activity and bacterial growth. 

What are Prebiotics?

A prebiotic is a selectively fermented ingredient that promotes the growth and/ or activity of the beneficial microbes that contribute to the well being of the animal.

Mode of Action:

  • Supplies nutrients to the beneficial microbes
  • Provides more surface area for beneficial microbes to work
  • Creates natural enzymatic secretion

The History of Amaferm®

Amaferm was discovered in 1945 during WWII by a chemist using a culture of Aspergillus oryzae to extract more alcohol from grain used in the manufacturing of aviation fuel to support the war effort.

The leftover mash was fed to his livestock. He observed greater growth and efficiency.

Today…Amaferm® is created from a proprietary select strain of Aspergillus oryzae taken through a proprietary multi-step fermentation process.
