SoftAcid® is a very efficient tool to avoid an unwanted temperature increase in Total Mixed Ration (TMR). Such a temperature increase can occur due to fermentation.
TMR - Total Mixed Ration
Moulds and yeasts have an optimal inhibition pH of around 3, while bacteria are increasingly inhibited as the pH drops. Therefore, to achieve good efficiency on moulds and yeasts, you need a product that is acidic, but not so highly acidic, in order to stay in the optimal pH range. SoftAcid will help you achieve the right pH level. The product is, therefore, more efficient than most other solutions available on the market.
- Efficient pH reduction and control
- Less corrosion
- Low volatility
- Good fermentation profile
- More sustainable than pure acids

All You Need to Know About Bacterial inhibition
Although microorganisms are very small in size, too small to be seen by the eye, they cause substantial economic losses each year for both the food and feed industry. Microbial growth can be controlled either by prevention or inhibition – using an antimicrobial agent.
