Proven efficacy for bacterial inhibition in plant-protein meals.


According to FAO reports, by 2025 about 84% of the world’s oilseed production will be crushed. This leads to a huge protein rich resource, which is prone to bacterial contamination. In Canada, canola meal exports dropped from 160,000 tonnes monthly to only 60,000, a reduction of more than 60%, because of Salmonella contamination. In Germany, in 2017, 4 million tonnes of rapeseed meal were produced, but at the same time reports of Salmonella contamination more than doubled.


ADDCON XL 2.0 is produced in Addcon’s diformate reactor. Due to the special production process, it is more effective than straight acids and easier in handling as well as safer in application. Its advantages lie in disinfection, due to: Its volatility – part of the product will evaporate through the meal   Its composition and stability – a significant part of the product will remain intact –and stable, even after pelleting, for an extended period


Recent trials with plant-protein meals in Germany (rapeseed meal) have shown a significant impact against Salmonella typhimurium under challenged conditions. The addition of ADDCON XL 2.0, according to Real-Time PCR results, inhibits recontamination, as shown by 35% better Ct-values.

Application feathermeal

Trials with ADDCON XL 2.0 under tropical conditions in feathermeal before packing for storage, at dosages ranging from 0.3 to 0.6%, resulted in a significant reduction of the Salmonella count.combat Salmonella.
