Unleashing the Power of Acids, Salts, and Glycerides in Livestock Nutrition

Unleashing the Power of Acids, Salts, and Glycerides in Livestock Nutrition

Thursday, April 4, 2024 at 1:09 PM

In recent years, acids and their binding forms have emerged as potent natural growth promoters, gaining global popularity following the prohibition of antibiotics as feed additives. When strategically employed, these compounds offer lots of scientifically proven advantages, revolutionizing the approach to livestock nutrition.

Key Benefits of Acid Application:

1. Enhanced Feed Hygiene:

  • Antimicrobial properties modulate the microbiota, reducing microbial pressure.
  • Improved pH levels in the gastrointestinal tract enhance feed hygiene.

2. Optimized Digestion:

  • Activation of digestive enzymes.
  • Enhanced secretion of endogenous enzymes for optimal nutrient utilization.

3. Efficient Nutrient Absorption:

  • Acids as an energy source.
  • Chelating properties improve mineral availability, optimizing nutrient absorption.

4. Increased Feed Efficiency:

  • Improved passage rate amplifies feed efficiency.

Strategic Acid Application:

To harness these diverse mechanisms effectively, clearly defined acid application goals are essential. The selective choice of acids or their binding forms is crucial to prevent unintended consequences, as improper application may yield no effect or even counterproductive outcomes.

Understanding Acid Potentials:

While all acids share a common low pH characteristic, the extent of their potential varies significantly. For example, phosphoric acid's potency far surpasses that of acetic acid. This pH reduction brings two key benefits: stabilizing or lowering the naturally low pH in the gastrointestinal tract of monogastric animals and inhibiting the spread of pH-dependent bacteria.

Diverse Mechanisms of Action:

Various acids exhibit distinct mechanisms of action, impacting specific sections of the gastrointestinal tract. While most acids work in feed or the anterior gastrointestinal tract, only a select few, including glycerides, exert their effects in the posterior gastrointestinal tract. This is crucial for reducing the spread of specific pathogens, such as Salmonella.
