Biofeed Technology


Biofeed utilizes a unique simultaneous fermentation-controlled process.   The products have a highly cell count of live yeast cells.  These live yeast cells are both thermo and pH stable with overall increased vigor, vitality and very high fermenting and reproductive capabilities.  They are processed together with the culture medium in which they were grown.  Other so called yeast cultures available on the market do not contain live yeast. They will not have all the beneficial effects of yeast cells fermenting in the rumen of the animal. This is especially important for dairy and beef cattle. Dead yeast cells are completely ineffective in having any response in the rumen of the animal. This type of product only contains metabolites of yeast fermentation and at best only offers nutrients to the animals. Other yeast cultures which they are grown are also less effective. It is because these live yeast cells do not have the benefits provided by the culture media which assist in the multiplication of live yeast once ingested in the animal gastrointestinal tract.

Biofeed’s products Contains Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast, with high fermenting capabilities on the medium in which they were grown. The functions of these yeast cultures are:

  • Yeast cultures can act as a palatability enhancer to encourage animals to eat more solid foods.
  • Live yeast can grow under anaerobic conditions in the digestive system utilizing or regulating metabolites produced by other microorganisms and modify the pH of rumen or stomach fluid to prevent acidosis and help stimulate an increase in dry matter intake.
  • Yeast cultures can improve the digestion and absorption of minerals including P, Mg, Ca, Cu, K, Zn, Fe and Mn by the animal.
  • Yeast cultures can regulate metabolic hydrogen to prevent production of ammonia and methane, therefore providing an increase in energy for milk production and weight gain, and resulting in a better feed conversion ratio.                                    
  • Yeast is rich in enzymes (β-Glucanase, Amylase, Lipase, Protease) amino acids fatty acids, vitamin B complexes and unknown growth factors which can stimulate the activity of a number of cellulolytic and other important anaerobic bacteria that will increase fiber digestibility.
  • The surface of yeast cell contains Glucomannoorotein which can bind pathogenic bacteria. These then pass through the GI tract and out of the body.
