The Company

TURVAL Laboratories were founded in the 90's by a group of biotechnological researchers from Friuli (North Italian Region) with the main purpose to reduce the use of antibiotics and emprove the efficacy in animal nutrition, the objective that was subsequently expanded to human health and nutrition.


Thanks to numerous scientific collaborations with prestigious international research institutes, Turval labs developed new generation prebiotics and probiotics, based on Kluyveromyces marxianus fragilis. 

These are the first of their kind that are able to surpass the gastric or ruminal barrier and thus reach the intestines of the animal with maximum effect. This helps to assure a considerable improvement in the health and well-being of the animal, thus increasing productivity in all animal species.
In the field of animals raised for food production, such as cattles, sheeps and pigs, the use of Turval's probiotics in the feed leads to a significant and natural increase in productivity and an improvement in the quality of the meat and milk. Turval's probiotics are added to the fodder given to cows whose milk is used to produce the famous "Parmigiano Reggiano" (Parmesan) cheese.
