The need to guarantee ruminant absorption of a correct amount of nutrients in the intestine cannot disregard the degradation by the rumen microflora. For over 30 years our scientific research has set the goal to improve the rumen bypass so that a lower concentration of active ingredients in the diet leads to maximizing performance.

Microtinic® Omega

Microtinic® Omega is a source of rumen-protected microencapsulated essential fatty acids.


Microtinic® Omega is a source of microencapsulated essential fatty acids from linseed oil.
The protective matrix is resistant at the rumenal level. Once in the intestine, lipases start to digest the lipid matrix, releasing the nutrients and making them available for absorption.


Microtinic® Omega positively influenced milk production and had no negative effect on milk fat percentage.
Microtinic® Omega significantly increased the ω3 content in milk. From: Panciroli N. (2013) DOI 10.6092/unibo/amsdottorato/5842.

  • Rumen-protected methionine: a boost for primiparous dairy cows performance

    Methionine is considered the most limiting essential amino acid for ruminants (Schwab & Broderick, 2017). This element has a pivotal role in their productive performance and nitrogen efficiency.
  • Organic acid and plant botanical supplementation in heat-stressed Holstein calves

    Our findings in Holstein calves are early evidence that dietary microencapsulated OA/PB feeding is a means to partially restore feed intake and average daily gain post-weaning when challenged by heat exposure.
  • Effects of heat stress and dietary organic acids and botanicals on hepatic one-carbon metabolism

    Heat stress develops with methyl donor deficiency in parallel with an impaired N metabolism. The supplementation of OA/PB improves the remethylation capacity in the liver. On-going transcriptomic analyses will provide a better understanding of the hepatic metabolism of dairy cows exposed to heat stress.
