Sourced From Nature

Panaferd®-AX comes from the microorganism Paracoccus carotinifaciens. While it is less than 0.2 microns in size, this microorganism is one of many components in the start of the food chain in the aquatic environment and produces one of the highest concentration of carotenoids, including Astaxanthin.

ANCI Animal Nutrition Applications

Panaferd® is the natural choice for health and color in aquaculture species including salmonids and crustaceans by supplying a wide range of super antioxidants and red carotenoids through a naturally fermented additive. Also available for livestock feed applications (chicken, egg, pork). 

Natural Process

Under specific conditions developed by our team of scientists, a natural fermentation of the Paracoccus microorganism is conducted to produce Panaferd®-AX. This process guarantees no GMOs, no additives, and no preservatives.

Nutritional Interests

Easily recognized by their colors varying from orange, to yellow and red, carotenoid pigments are naturally found in plants, algae, and microorganisms such as Paracoccus.  However, animals such as fish or shrimp do not synthesize carotenoids and as a consequence they must find these pigments in their food chain.

Approvals

The use of Panaferd®-AX is fully authorized in all major salmon producing countries and has been approved by the EFSA (European Food and Safety Agency) and the FDA ( U.S. Food and Drug Administration ). Panaferd®-AX is also fully compliant with the European Union organic aquaculture norms as well as other organic standards from labels in Germany and Switzerland.

Efficient and Stable

Thanks to mother nature, the Paracoccus carotinifaciens microorganism contains various carotenoids which will sustain the fish color but also participate to its good health. The most important of these being Astaxanthin.
