Com­bined nat­u­ral growth pro­mot­ing prod­ucts – the new way in pathogen con­trol.

The Poultry Bulletin - - NUTRITION NEWS -

Bac­te­rial con­tam­i­na­tion, es­pe­cially Gram neg­a­tive bac­te­ria con­tam­i­na­tion of the GIT is one of the ma­jor prob­lems in the poul­try in­dus­try. Many at­tempts have been done in pro­tect­ing and treat­ing the an­i­mals with Gram neg­a­tive bac­te­ria con­tam­i­na­tion, us­ing an­tibi­otics and many other sub­stances. One of the old­est meth­ods used is the acid­i­fi­ca­tion of the gas­tro-in­testi­nal tract (GIT). Or­ganic acids have the abil­ity to mod­u­late the in­testi­nal mi­croflora, en­hanc­ing the growth of ben­e­fi­cial bac­te­ria like

Lac­to­bacilli while re­duc­ing the num­ber of path­o­genic Gram neg­a­tive bac­te­ria. In the mod­ern live­stock in­dus­try com­bi­na­tion of dif­fer­ent or­ganic acids are used, be­cause of the broader spec­trum of ac­tiv­ity.
