EU authorized MAXBIOS probiotic for use in weaned piglets

The European Union has authorized MAXBIOS, a preparation of Bacillus subtilis DSM 28343, for the use in weaned piglets until August 2028.
MAXBIOS is a probiotic preparation of the spore-forming probiotic strain Bacillus subtilis DSM 28343. Already in 2016, MAXBIOS has been approved as a feed additive for chickens for fattening and has achieved convincing results in the improvement of gut health since then. Now, the EU followed EFSA's recommendations and authorized MAXBIOS for use in weaned piglets. Several trials showed that MAXBIOS has a great potential to increase weaning weight, daily live weight gain and the feed conversion ratio in weaners. MAXBIOS is assigned to the additive category ‘zootechnical additives’ as a ‘gut flora stabilizer’.
