Promoting improved performance in swine
P. guilliermondii has been demonstrated to be effective in binding or aggregating swine-specific strains of Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica, and to a greater extent than S. cerevisiae-based solutions (see Figure 1).
P. guilliermondii has been studied in vivo in both experimental and commercial swine facilities and been demonstrated to be associated with various beneficial impacts on performance.
Of note, supplementing the gestation and lactation diets of sows and gilts with a P. guilliermondii feed additive has been associated with improved sow reproductive parameters related to fecundity and piglet performance. For example, in three separate studies, more pigs were weaned per litter among sows that received P. guilliermondii supplementation, compared to sows not receiving any P. guilliermondii supplementation (see Figure 2).
Novel yeast leading to feeding efficacy
P. guilliermondii is a novel yeast with unique morphological properties influencing its efficacy in animal feeding. Research has demonstrated its effectiveness in swine, especially in sows during gestation and lactation to support reproduction and piglet performance.
