Test Results

Test results with poultry

Significant outperformance of experimental and industrial trials vs. “ideal” industry standard





Test results with laying hens

With KIEG CS1 hens lay more and bigger eggs with less cholesterol starting at an earlier age

  • Experimental group test conducted at VÚŽV in July 2011
  • Control group: hens with free access to outdoor grass pasture as well as yolk coloring additives in feedstuff
  • Algae Group: hens’ diet supplemented with KIEG CS1 and without yolk coloring additives
  • Results were presented at Poultry Days 2012, an annual congress of poultry researchers
