Some important ingredients for animal digestive products now marked with red borders, like for example Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, a popular gut flora stabiliser. In the pet supplement industry, this additive was often used to growth-promoting rhizobacteria having the ability to colonize roots quickly.
What does it mean marked with red borders? In practice, such legal prescription means that this ingredient may not be added anymore in the pets supplement products that are available for sale on the territory of the European Union.
