Salmonella continues to be one of the biggest threats for animal production professionals. Blends of propionic and formic acid with specifically selected essential oils prove to be a potent solution to combat this pathogen. 
(Photo: Shutterstock)Perstorp - February 20, 2018 - Towards the end of 2017, the European Union denied the authorization of formaldehyde as a preservative and hygiene condition enhancer. Foreseeing this decision, Swedish organic acid producer and feed additives manufacturer Perstorp has been researching the mode of action and effectiveness of organic acids against Salmonella for years.
