The technology to produce fermented feed using grains and Bacillus spp. screened from BIOTEC Culture Collection was developed. This fermented feed is easily digestible by animals because some of the nutrients are partly digested and readily utilizable, resulting in an enhanced meat quality and yield.
This technology led to a joint investment of over 100 million Baht between NSTDA, a private company and researchers to establish Micro Innovate Co., Ltd., the first industrial-scale microbial production plant for animal feed in Thailand.
The fermented animal feed is now commercially available under the trade name “B-Soy Digest” and “DS-1”
