Wouter Vullings, Marketing Manager Animal Nutrition, Brenntag EMEA: “Brenntag Animal Nutrition is committed to provide its customers with products and services that are safe, secure and of a consistently high quality. For organic acids to be increasingly used in livestock feedstuffs, there is a need for an improved and sustainable product. SoftAcid and Neubacid Soft products meet all these requirements and expectations and thus is an ideal complementation of our animal nutrition product portfolio.”
Neubacid Soft products are based on the raw material lignin, the binding agent in wood and thus a natural polymer. As an additive it reduces the corrosiveness of organic acids without reducing the effectivity. In addition, Neubacid Soft provides a clear inhibition of bacterial colonization and a reduction of biofilm adhesion.

Brenntag understands the complexity of the animal feed chain and has an experienced team of experts and technicians to devise customized, tailor-made solutions with our natural, sustainable products for the customers.”
