Managing protein in the gut :
The benefits for poultry production

Jefo Pro Solution has been designed to improve feed protein flow management in poultry. It contributes to lower feed cost or to use alternative protein sources, and to improve intestinal integrity.

Why do protein and aminoacids often limit performance?

A good management of protein within the diet is crucial for an optimal production. However, a lot of factors can influence real protein intake and use, bringing a lot of variability.

Feed/Raw materials

  • Cost/Prices variability
  • Availability of Synthetic amino acids
  • Valorization of local sources


  • Digestibility variability : Age, transit time, health, etc.
  • Evaluation of aa requirements : impact of immunity, impact of gut restructuration, etc…


  • Ability to use non-digestible protein :
    bad fermentation, alteration of gut integrity, ammonia production

This important variability can often limit performances.

Managing feed protein flow : a crucial challenge

To manage feed protein flow, it is necessary to act on the digestible protein fraction to release oligopeptides that will be absorded by the bird for good performances, while controling the non digestible protein fraction, which can be used as a substrate by pathogenic bacteria and affect intestinal integrity.

Intestinal Integrity

Jefo Pro Solution is helping to lower protein content within the gut of poultry, allowing reduced feed cost and secured performances

Our solution’s main benefits

Better use of digestible protein in the gut to lower feed cost

Optimal protein digestion in the small intestine to lower feed cost while maintaining good performance.

Lower non-digestible protein in the gut to improve intestinal integrity

Jefo Pro Solution optimizes the assimilation of feed in the small intestine, reducing the amount of indigested protein content in the hindgut

Lowered nitrogen waste, resulting in:

  • Lower environmental impact
  • Better air quality and lung health
  • Better litter quality for lower pododermatitis incidence

Reduces the indigestible portion of feed ingredients that favor bacteria growth
