Feed Acidifiers As Natural Growth Promoters in Poultry Feed

Gopal Krishan and Asmita Narang.

Abstract
Feed additives are of great interest in the poultry industry due to their property to promote growth performance. Common feed additives used in poultry diets include antimicrobials, antioxidants, emulsifiers, binders, pH control agents and enzymes. Feed Acidifiers which are natural growth promoters, are acids included in feeds in order to lower the pH of the feed, gut, and microbial cytoplasm thereby inhibiting the growth of pathogenic intestinal microflora. Acidifiers can be in organic or inorganic acids or associated salts and added to the poultry feed to exert their antimicrobial action both in the feed and in the GI-tract. Organic acids have been identified as best alternative to antibiotic growth promoters by optimising the pH of gut, increasing the digestibility of the several minerals and thus increase the economic performance of poultry.

Key words: Feed acidifiers, organic acids, growth promoters
