May 22, 2008, Lexington, KY – Alltech announced that one of their signature products, Bio-Mos® , has recently received approval from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for its product description in swine and poultry feeds. 

According to the agency, Alltech is now allowed to make the following statement in Canada: “Bio-Mos is a yeast cell wall supplement for swine, broiler and turkey feeds, improving efficiency of gain and average daily gain in these species.”

“The approved statement on Bio-Mos in Canada represents a major step forward for Alltech and the animal feed industry,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, President of Alltech. “This approval now allows Alltech, as an all-natural animal health company, to explain the benefits of Bio-Mos to the Canadian feed industry.”


This product’s approval follows in the footsteps of Ecocert Canada’s allowance of Bio-Mos for organic use in animal feeds.

Bio-Mos has a market presence spanning 15 years and is supported by over 700 research trials (university, peer reviewed, practical) and currently 88 of these trials exist as peer review publications and several others are pending this status.
