SILO is strongly oriented towards research and technological innovation. Our mission is to develop, produce and market Monoglycerides, Diglycerides and Triglycerides of Short and Medium Fatty Acids to be used in animal nutrition for gut health modulation, better nutrient absorption, gut development and integrity, resistance against pathogens. Meat and eggs safety, sustainability and reduction of antibiotics are the guide-lines of our approach.
A special section of SILO R&D is dedicated to innovative protection technologies for rumen by-pass products and their field applications. A new pH-sensible lipid matrix has been developed to grant a very high ruminal protection combined with high biological availability of Monoglycerides, aminoacids and vitamins.
SILO solutions are developed in scientific collaboration with
Guelph University : Prof. Steve Leeson
University of Parma : Prof. Afro Quarantelli
University of Piacenza: Prof. Francesco Masoero
