MSP[RS] RESISTANT STARCH
Resistant Starch is a prebiotic that passes intact through the stomach and small intestine of mono-gastric animals. It is fermented in the colon forming short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate, providing a reduction in pH and fueling the growth of colonocytes.
MSP[RS] Resistant Starch improves gut health in swine. Its ease-of-use from birth onward assists piglet, weaners and sows with developing a healthier, more resilient colon. MSP[RS] Resistant Starch has been proven to lower fecal pH and improve fecal consistency. It has been demonstrated to aid in situations of piglet scours due to TGE, PEDv, E Coli, Clostridium Perfringens and Rotavirus.

Excerpt from MSP[RS] Resistant Starch Advertorial:
“It is well understood that the large intestine provides a chamber for the final phase of digestion in the pig. Results have suggested that certain Short Chain Fatty Acids [SCFA] such as butyrate correlate with healthier digestion. MSP[RS]® Resistant Starch is a proven Resistant Starch that provides this higher level of butyrate production. MSP[RS] achieves the greater concentration of butyrate by beneficial microbial fermentation in the large intestine. Butyrate has been shown to significantly reduce gut inflammation and incite a feeling of satiation (fullness and well-being) thus reducing stress in the animal.”
