Tanno-SAN is a hydrolysable tannin derived from selected sweet chestnut wood, containing high levels of polyphenols, showing beneficial effects on the digestion and hence animal performance when incorporated in animal diets.

In poultry, studies have shown the protective and inhibitory functions of tannins as a factor against colonisation of intestinal mucosa with pathogens and harmful bacterias such as Salmonella spp., C. perfringens, E. coli a.o..

Apart from improving technical parameters in poultry production, the addition of Tanno-SAN has also a positive effect on litter quality as it increases the dry matter content of the litter reducing the incidence of footpad lesions. 

Studies in weaned piglets show the hydrolysable forms of tannins improved feed efficiency and reduction of intestinal bacterial proteolytic reactions.
