Sonac offers improved digestible natural protein source
Sonac, a supplier of high-quality animal-based proteins, fats and minerals, introduces an improved, highly digestible natural protein source for dairy cows and other animals.

MucoPro 80P is a pure porcine mucosal protein hydrolysate developed to stimulate the feed intake of young animals. Suitable for use in all types of animal feed, it can be purchased in both small and bulk bags, offering greater flexibility for feed manufacturers.

It is formulated through the company’s unique production techniques at facilities in Europe, making an exceptionally palatable feed ingredient that is concentrated in free amino acids, plus di- and tri-peptides – fractions that are rapidly digested by young animals

. As a result, they and their intestinal cells are nourished quickly and efficiently to reinforce the gut defence system.

Mucus, mucosal cells and the intestinal immune system are recognised as providing young animals with high levels of protection against invasive and harmful pathogens.

The company’s patented manufacturing process ensures that the product contains less salt and ash compared to competitor products.
