Feed supplement’s gain claim approved

Bio-Mos, a supplement for hog and poultry feeds, has picked up Canadian Food Inspection Agency approval for its claims on gain.

The product’s manufacturer, U.S. animal feed firm Alltech, announced Wednesday that CFIA had approved its description for Bio-Mos, specifically: “Bio-Mos is a yeast cell wall supplement for swine, broiler and turkey feeds, improving efficiency of gain and average daily gain in these species.”

“This approval now allows Alltech, as an all-natural animal health company, to explain the benefits of Bio-Mos to the Canadian feed industry,” Alltech president Dr. Pearse Lyons said in a release Wednesday.

Organic certification agency Ecocert Canada recently said it would allow Bio-Mos for organic use in animal feeds, Alltech noted.
