A vinegar based-antimicrobial was developed for controlling food pathogens in meat products. The antimicrobial is prepared using liquid blending (buffering process), dehydration and standardization. The buffering process refers to partial neutralization of white distilled vinegar (300 grain) with mild bases to produce a solution containing acetic acid and its salt. The dehydration step involved the removal of water from the buffered vinegar using a dryer. The standardization step involved a plating (spraying) process wherein white distilled vinegar (300 grain) was applied to the dried, buffered vinegar to meet the target active component as well as other physical and chemical product specifications.


The present invention relates to the application of beta zeolite in animal feed as a toxin binder. The beta zeolites, which contain 12 membered ring systems with Bronsted and Lewis acidic sites, have high binding efficacy against common toxins present in animal feed. This study aimed to evaluate the binding efficacy of the disclosed H beta zeolite (HBZ) has high binding efficiecy against major mycotoxins such as aflatoxin B1, ochratoxin A (OTA), zearalenone, mycophenolic acid, cyclopiazonic acid, Fumonisin B1, T-2 and patulin.

A method of forming a granule having an internal three-dimensional framework of channels to control and sustain the release of an active ingredient for enteric delivery of the active ingredient in an animal fed the granule. In the composition of the granules hydrogenated vegetable oil, HVO for example, is combined with a modifier to create a granule with channels through which the active ingredient is released. The active ingredients, including but not limited to metal salts of butyric acid, can be released in the lower gut of the animal where it will best benefit the animal. By adjusting the amount of the modifier, the release rate of the active can be adjusted to suit the passage rate of the species of animal being fed.
