Broiler Water Ingredient with Pre-Biotic Effect

Our BioComplex is 100% Ascophyllum Nodosum (derived from marine algae) processed by Ekogea’s microbiologists in a unique way to produce BCxF. When administered to birds via drinking water BCxF gives both increased weight gain and a large reduction in ammonia and Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) in the faeces resulting in healthier and stronger birds.


Reduction in ammonia


Natural Product

Increase in weight gain

With better feed conversion rates and reduced cycle times through poultry housing. Typically 4% increase in final weight (measured in animal housing and abattoir) can be expected in high performing crops, larger increases in older style housing – or similar size birds with lower feed cost.

Crop cycle can be reduced

Crop cycle can be reduced by up to 2 days, providing significant savings in feed and an increase in the income for the crop. BCxF helps the birds resist gut infection from pathogens and toxins, reducing antibiotic treatment. BCxF acts by greatly increasing the number and diversity of gut organisms as well as stabilising the gut, making the birds less susceptible to enteric upset.

Lower levels of hock burn

Lower levels of Hock burn and Pododermatitis within crops where symptoms are evident and reduced levels of ammonia within the house, improving general bird environment and health.

Lower ammonia emissions

Lower ammonia emissions assist intensive agriculture to meet the demands of the Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales and Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, under current for future regulatory environments.


Ammonia/NH3 precipitates nitric acid which causes burns outside (such as hock burn & pododermatitus) and enterically (in the animal intestine) leading to poor bird health. Ammonia gas can also cause problems with bird health and environmental compliance – and unpleasant working conditions for farmers.

BCxF propagates the conversion of gaseous NH3 into a non-volatile NH4 significantly reducing Ammonia odour, helping achieve environmental compliance, reducing neighbourhood complaints and improving bird health. Also improving the environment of the house and the quality of the litter for anaerobic digestion or fertiliser use.

BCxF is clean and safe to use. Pre-diluted with fresh water and then dosed through a Dosatron® or similar device to give a final 1:10,000 dilution. For example, a 1:200 pre-dilution (in a standard 1,000 litre IBC container) would then be dosed at 2%, or 1:100 pre-dilution dosed at 1%.

BCxF changes the chemical structure of Ammonia Gas (NH3) to Ammonium (NH4). Which in practice means a reduction in the harmful Ammonia. It does this by using Polyuronic Acid containing high negative cations and chelated trace elements in the BCxF to buffer unwanted heavy metals which convert NH3 to NH4 to reduce Ammonia.

Oligosaccharides in the BCxF contain simple sugars which feed the bacteria and enhance the growing environment allowing the positive bacteria to ‘crowd out’ (competitively exclude) the negative bacteria.

The alkaline nature of BCxF lines the gut wall with sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3). The oligosaccharides within BCxF prepare the gut with sugar and carbon to build biological activity for improved animal health enhancing feed conversion ratio and growth rates.

We believe our alkaline approach to be unique in the market place.
