Novicid

Optimal acidification to reach high performance

Reaching the highest possible animal health status is a key element for the production of food from animal origin.  Clearly the focus has moved from treatment to prevention with with an emphasis on optimal digestion and performance in order to maintain profitability. 

Organic acids clearly have the potential to improve the performance of the animals. Due to their multiple effects at physiological and cellular level, organic acids have a direct and indirect impact on digestive efficiency. 

The Novicid line is based on well selected acids to guarantee maximum activity in the intestinal tract, focusing on in vivo efficiency.  The choice of the acids  largely depends on the application and the desired effect.  Also, other parameters such as corrosiveness, economics, pungency, volatility and acceptance by the animal should be taken into account.

Organic Acids

Two main organic acid will form the backbone of the NOVICID product line:

  • Formic acid is a short chain organic acid with a high pH-reducing potential and high MIC values for several bacteria.  Due to the high number of atoms per weight unit, it forms the ideal choice for a strong pH reducing acid mix. 
  • Lactic acid originates from fermentation, is non-corrosive and very well accepted by the animal. This secures feed intake when high levels of acids are used.  Based on in house in vivo trial work and independent literature, lactic acid acts strongly against pathogenic E. Coli and  is superior for prevention of diarrhea. 

In order to increase the efficiency of Novicid, certain formulations are enriched with other compounds like benzoic acid, Medium Chain Fatty Acid, mono-esters of butyric acid or lauric acid to broaden the activity and obtain maximum functionality.

    Product Range

    The form in which the acid is presented is mainly defined by its farm application and practical application in the feed mill. 

    Novicid Liquid range

    • Liquid blend of acids, highly concentrated (no carrier)
    • Application in feed
    • Application directly in mixer via liquid application system
    • Pure acids or partially buffered in function of corrosiveness / ADR
    • Other acids can be added, but limited to their solubility
    • FOCUS: pH reduction at the level of the stomach and antibacterial activity. 


    Novicid Liquid on carrier range:

    • Liquid blend of acids on mineral carrier (Silica)
    • Application in feed
    • Pure acids or partially buffered in function of corrosiveness / ADR
    • Other acids can be added, independent from their solubility
    • FOCUS: pH reduction at the level of the stomach and antibacterial activity. 


    Novicid Reacted range:

    • Reacted blend of organic and/or inorganic acids
    • Application in feed, premixes and concentrates
    • Highly concentrated (no carrier)
    • Non-volatile (odorless) and non-reactive
    • Reacted acids – complete buffered (non-corrosive – no ADR)
    • FOCUS: Reduction of buffer capacity, highly available Ca/P source and antibacterial activity.
