New Ultra-Pure Benzoic Acid Feed Additive Enhances Swine Performance

Benzoic acid, a well-established acidifier in the swine industry, helps create stability and balance in the animal digestive tract. And, it’s been proven to be more effective than other common acidifiers (organic acids) in the areas that affect digestive health and animal performance the most.

VevoVitall® is an ultra-pure form of benzoic acid. Research shows* that VevoVitall® impacts weaned pigs by:

  • Increasing average daily gain by 6.1%
  • Increasing average daily feed intake by 2.9%
  • Reducing feed conversion by 2.6%
  • Reducing ammonia emissions by 40%

*When compared to a diet without VevoVitall®.

How It Works


Dr. Jeremiah Nemechek, senior swine technical support manager for DSM, describes how VevoVitall® impacts the digestive health of weaning pigs to improve performance.

How It Helps Swine Producers


VevoVitall® preserves feed and nutritional qualities longer and helps weaning pigs with immature digestive systems better absorb nutrients, explains Dr. Jon Bergstrom, senior swine technical support manager for DSM.
