Because “gut” should be “good”


SalClean™ is an effective anti-Salmonella mixture of potent organic acids and salts with highly selected and purified essential oils. All of these synergistic compounds have typical broad-spectrum anti-microbial features, especially against Salmonella spp. SalClean™ is of great significance as bio-hygienic treatment of swine and poultry feed.The grey-whitish, non-corrosive granular material is freeflowing and heat stable during manufacturing of premixes and processing of raw materials or complete diets.


Active ingredients:

  • Dietary organic acids and their salts: Benzoic acid, (4d210), Calcium propionate (E282), Calcium formate (E238), Citric acid (E330), Calcium Lactate (E327), Calcium butyrate
  • Phytobiotics: highly purified, plant-extracted essential oil compounds
  • Mineral carrier: mycotoxin-binding Sepiolite clay (E562)

Physico-chemical features:

  • Pack density: 0.7 - 0.9 g/cm3
  • Moisture: < 10%
  • pH-value (10% solution): 3.5 - 5.5
  • Olfactory: very perceptive odor (organic acids & botanic aromaticals)

SalClean™ is applied for the reduction of harmful pathogens, especially Gram-negative enterobacteria (like Salmonella spp. and E. coli) in stored feed and in the gastro-intestinal tract (GIT) of monogastrics. It is an exceptional, well-balanced acidifier-mixture with synergistic botanical compounds. This powerful and convenient combination (of most bactericidal, low-corrosive organic acids and essential oils) enables a continuous control of gut pathogens who remain a costly occurrence for producers.

Organic acids beneficially lower the pH in feed, in GIT and inside the pathogenic cell. This also facilitates the animal’s secretion and activation of more gastric-pancreatic digestive enzymes. Organic acids also help reduce the production of ammonia and other growth-depressing microbial metabolites. In particular, benzoic acid has a superior positive-modulating effect on microfloral composition and thus gut morphology as well (epithelial adsorption surface). It is in fact the only acid that really erases harmful yeasts effectively. Benzoic acid increases the total nutrient utilization resulting in a higher daily growth, improved FCR and better return in 1st grade quality carcasses and meat. Furthermore, benzoic acid acts as a powerful appetizer in rating feed consumption for swine.

Essential oils or phytogenics make pathogens’ cell membranes more permeable so that undissociated organic acids may enter the bacteria more easily and provoke microbial cell death. The botanical thymol stimulates the excretion of endogenous digestive enzymes, so that less undigested substrate will be available to pathogens for fermentation (e.g. into toxic biogenic amines) which is known to cause diarrhoea and consequently wet litter (e.g.piglets in weaning stage). These natural growth promoters (NGPs) have substantial antioxidative and organoleptic features which help increase feed acceptance and thus daily consumption.

The synergy in SalClean™ prevents microbial proliferation specially Gram-negative species like Salmonella, E.coli, Klebsiella as well as Campylobacter. Furthermore, desirable effects have been described in tests for the Gram-positive species of streptococci and clostridia. The additional inhibition of detrimental yeasts and moulds makes SalClean™ also suitable for feed preservation. SalClean™ has specific microbial targets and, because of its pH-lowering effect, does not affect the beneficial microbial populations such as lactobacili, bifidobacteria or even commercial probiotic preparations (e.g. E. faecium)


  • Dosage recommendations for SalClean™:
    0.5 - 3 kg/mT: for standard diets; for storage of all oil-derived vegetal meals (e.g. SBM)
    3 - 5 kg/mT: for complete diets with indicated problems of microbial contamination; for high-fat fishmeal, meat-and bone meal, etc.
    SalClean™ is not to be applied through the drinking water since it has no high solubility.
  • Storage conditions:
    Please keep in tightly closed original bag and store in a cool, dark and dry place. SalClean™ is a stable product under above conditions for a period of 24 months from manufacturing date. After this period quality should be checked before use. Small variations in color are possible yet not affecting the intrinsic activity and performance.
