The animal feed additives market is fast growing to satisfy the act demands on food safety, animal welfare and environmental protection. Especially antibiotic-free (ABF) feed production is the market trend, plant extracts additives will become one of the key ingredients of animal feeding. According to the Regulation (EC) 1831/20031, the categories2 of feed additives were identified as: (a) Technological Additives. (b) Sensory Additives. (c) Nutritional Additives. (d) Zootechnical Additives. (e) Coccidiostats and histomonostats.The animal feed additives can effect on3: (a) Improve the animal feeding result. (b) Improve the quality of animals. (c) Make the color bright of ornamental fish and birds. (d) Providing nutrients to animals and increase feed effectiveness. (e) Improve the impact of livestock production for environment . (f) Improve animal resistance, inhibition of coccidial and histomonas infection.
Plant Extracts Chemicals for Feed Additives Market
Plant extracts for feed additives are an important application of animal nutrition science. Herb-based additives are the common feed solution. It was used the herbs blend with feed materials directly without extraction processing, The products are easy producing and has the advantage of low-cost for livestock management.
Plant essential oils (EOs) are another feed solution. EOs is monomer or natural essential oil thatprepared by chemical extraction process. It was also called “Natural-identical”.
Types of Natural Plant Extracts for Animal Feed:
Also learn the natural identical used for food additives market.
EOs were extracted from herb plants, such as oregano leaves, thyme, parsley, eucalyptus oil, cumin, pine needles, houttuynia, artemisia, bay leaves, ect. Comparing the biotechnological routes of enzyme preparations, prebiotics, functional proteins and peptides, EOs are applied to the feed through natural active substances, and the animals absorb the active ingredients after eating to exert the medicinal effects of the plants4.
Application of plant extracts additives in livestock & poultry production:
Change the teste and odor of feed materials
Stimulate the glossopharyngeal nerves of livestock and poultry, improve saliva secretion and appetite
Improve the delivery rate
Improve the number of litter
Improve the daily gain
Improve feed return
