Anta®Shield protects feed against ASF

Protect your food in a natural way

Natural and highly effective - Anta®Shield protects feed against ASF

Proprietary plant extract combination shows high effectivity 

Anta®Shield makes use of powerful bioactive plant metabolites, including those derived from hops, which have been cultivated for thousands of years for the very purpose of safeguarding food from pathogens. Since the ASFV is an enveloped virus with an outer glycoprotein layer, we tested plant extracts that are known to destabilise biomembranes of gram-positive bacteria for their effect on ASF infectivity in pig feed. The result: 100 times less infectivity with Anta®Shield after 24 hours (fig. 1). The plant extracts were more effective than an organic acid treatment, while the final formulation of Anta®Shield showed the best effect overall, proving the synergism of the chosen active principles.
