CON-VERGE™– Where Immunity, MicroBiome and Colonization Resistance Meet
To feed a MicroBasics product is to push the boundaries of possibility, unconstrained by cost and red tape. Our formulation philosophy is built on Immunity principles that free us to innovate and create our greatest visions. On these foundations, icons are born.
To own the moment yet exist beyond it: this is what makes an icon. As new technologies and innovations unfold, we push towards the next frontier: embracing the possibilities of MicroBiome Engineering. Our values are unwavering while our vision remains clear: eliminate antibiotics and coccidiostats from animal feed.
The intestine harbors an ecosystem composed of the intestinal mucosa and the commensal microbiota. The microbiota fosters development of the Immune system, aids digestion and protects host cells from pathogens.

- Probiotics – What’s all the fuss? Probiotics have become quite a hot topic as we discover more about each different strain and their role in the microbiome. There is still much to learn, but here is a little about what we know now. ROLE OF PROBIOTICS Stabilize rumen fermentation Promote lactic acid production Mitigate negative effects of stress on the gut…
- Beta-glucans – What are they? Beta-glucans are a type of polysaccharide, meaning they are made of a chain of simple sugar molecules. They can be found in the cell walls of microorganisms such as bacteria, algae, lichens, seaweed, various plants, and yeast. PREBIOTIC EFFECT Beta-glucans are a prebiotic, meaning that they are indigestible to the animal, but are used…
- Yeast and Yeast Derivatives – What’s the difference? Yeast and yeast derivatives have been demonstrated to have a wide range of immune enhancing benefits. It can be confusing trying to differentiate what kind of yeast is included in a feed product and understanding what it does. Let’s discuss this a little further in depth! Whole-Live Yeast: single celled fungi. Improved oxygen utilization in the…
