For Cattle, farmers searching for alternatives to antibiotics, PROLIFOS is a stable prebiotic capable of promoting beneficial bacteria and suppressing pathogenic bacteria.

Mechanism of Action

PROLIFOS escapes enzymatic digestion in the small intestine because of the β-linkages between the fructose monomers. These β-linkages cannot be hydrolysed by enzymes of endogenous origin and therefore FOS forms a substrate for the gastrointestinal microbiota. PROLIFOS inhibits pathogenic bacteria, such as Clostridium perfringens and E. coli in the large intestine. It is fermented in the large intestine into SCFAs, lactate and carbon dioxide. It selectively increases lactic acid utilizing bacteria, such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria.These bacteria are able to compete with pathogens and increases n- butyrate concentration (SCFA). N-butyrate is the major source of energy for epithelial cells of the large intestine and stimulates the proliferation of cells and the water absorption from the lumen.

Benefits of Prolifos

– Enhances minimization of micro and macronutrients

– Improve digestion and secretion of digestive enzymes

– Control acute or chronic calve diarrhoea

– Enhance fast growth and better weight gain in young ones

– Galactagogue for lactating animals

– Increase the total production of short-chain fay acids like butyrate in particular


– 0.5 – 2 kg per tonne of feed
