About The Book

This book highlights the most important categories of natural growth promoters: Acidifiers, probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, feed enzymes, phytogenics and immune stimulants. Particular focus is placed on their characterisation, mode of action and potential benefits in different animal species, including pigs, poultry, fish, shrimp and ruminants.

Gut health is based on a well-balanced microflora which protects the host from pathogenic invasion, thus having a beneficial impact on the overall health status of the animal. Since antibiotic growth promoters are increasingly excluded in modern animal nutrition, alternative concepts have been developed in order to maintain gut health.

Several natural alternatives, referred to as Natural Growth Promoters (NGP), have been identified as effective and safe alternatives in antibiotic-free feeding systems. All these products have the potential to beneficially affect gut health and growth performance.
