Our lactic acid, calcium lactate, and lactylates contribute to improving health in a variety of species. In pigs, lactic acid helps piglets cope with weaning stress and maintain feed intake to support optimal health and performance. Our LAFEED® and CALFEED® animal nutrition ingredients contribute to keeping feed intake consistent.
ALOAPUR®, which contains lactylates, esters of lactic acid, and carefully selected medium-chain fatty acids, is a natural, safe, and effective biobased livestock feed additive that helps improve animal gut health. It's suitable for incorporation into livestock premix feed and compound feed.

Our LAFEED® and CALFEED® animal feed additives offer a variety of functionalities such as increasing digestion efficiency and reducing the incidence of cracked and broken eggs. Our ALOAPUR® lactylates help broilers cope with suboptimal conditions, enabling better growth performance. And our drinking water-grade lactic acid, PURAC 80 DW, helps increase food safety in poultry products.
Corbion is the world's leading producer of algal DHA. Our AlgaPrime™ DHA is a quality source of omega-3 fatty acids that is far more sustainable as an animal nutrition ingredient than fish oil and is suitable for aquaculture and other animal feed applications.
We also offer calcium lactate for aiding the formation of the exoskeleton and boosting performance in shrimps and fish. Both species can absorb calcium directly from surrounding water via their gills and body surface, and because calcium lactate is highly soluble, it can be applied either as an animal feed additive or via the water.
