- GLUCAN F.
The Beta 1,3
Glucan is known for it's immuno-stimulation properties and bio-viability
enhancement effects. However, it is non soluble in water.
The CM-glucan is soluble in water, while the efficacy of the Beta 1,3 Glucan remains the same. It makes it of higher bioavailability than the non soluble one.
For fish and shrimps feed we developed the CM-Glucan F. It disolves slowly in the water, making it suitable to be added to dry feed compounds, flakes, powders, etc.
U.S. Patents supporting thr potency of Beta 1,3 Glucan:
5,189,028: COMPOSITION AND METHOD TO ENHANCE THE
OF A FISH VACCINE AND TO STIMULATE THE IMMUNE SYSTEM OF FISH.
No. 5,401,727: PROCESS FOR ENHANCING THE RESISTANCE OF
AQUATIC ANIMALS TO DISEASE.
No. 5,641,761: PREVENTIVE AGENT AGAINST INFECTIOUS DISEASE
