The 3rd generation liquid acid with broadband effect!

Bacterial contamination in animal production,

caused by Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria,

leads to losses and the associated effects on the animals,

such as lower daily increases, diarrhea and increased mortality as well as veterinary costs.

Formic acid has the strongest bacteriostatic effects among organic acids.


ADDCON XL forte increases the documented effects of formic acid by combining it with acid salts from ADDCON’s patented diformate reactor, medium-chain fatty acids and antioxidants,

thus expanding the mechanism of action of the product.


ADDCON XL Forte stands for

High amount of active ingredients

Broad antibacterial effect

Proven effectiveness

The use of ADDCON XL forte leads to the following advantages

Reduces the bacterial load in the drinking water and upper digestive tract of the animal.
Reduces pathogenic Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria – and thereby reduces diarrhea by up to 100%.
Improves animal performance through optimized digestion.


Antimicrobial effects of formic acid against various bacteria (after Strauss and Hayler, 2001)

Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) in %

Good to know

The use of ADDCON XL forte is therefore a logical part

of the ADDCON feed hygiene concept for safe,

sustainable and economical animal production.
