A new issue of Feed Mix magazine, the international journal on feed, nutrition and technology has been published.

Among the topics covered in this month's issue are:

Based on these encouraging outcomes of previous trials, Lallemand carried out a project to validate the zootechnical benefits of P. acidilactici MA18/5M in shrimps to gain an even better understanding of its mode of action.

Theo Niewold reviews the current knowledge on the interaction between nutrients and the immune system.
