Feed Acidifiers: Market Outlook

Feed additives are a type of supplements that are given to the farm animals. These additives ensure proper nourishment for these animals. Feed additives include fatty acids, vitamins, amino acids, and minerals. Most of these nutrients are not obtained from the usual food that these animals consume and hence it requires an external source of nutrients. Vitamins and minerals are micronutrients which is required in smaller amounts and has to be obtained from external sources as the body cannot process these nutrients. Fatty acids and amino acids are macronutrients, which is required by the body in large quantities and the body can process its own macronutrients.

There are different types of feed additives through which the animals can gain the nutrients such as maize, soy, wheat, rice, and other grains and cereals. There is another type of additive that is added to the feed called as feed acidifiers. These acidifiers are used in the animal feed in order to act as a preserving agent and also helps control the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria.

Feed acidifiers are widely used to promote a healthy gut by creating certain modulations in the intestinal flora, through their bactericidal or bacteriostatic effects on various types of bacteria. There are different types of feed acidifiers present such as organic and inorganic. Owing to the increase in the demand for feed additives, it is expected to create a huge demand for the feed acidifiers during the forecast period.

Feed Acidifiers and its Properties:

Feed acidifiers are certain additives that are added to the feed to low the pH in the feed, this will help to inhibit the growth of various pathogenic intestinal microorganisms. Feed acidifiers also help improve the performance of feed which when added to it offers additional nutrients. The feed acidifiers have a fat matrix, which ensures the solubility of the acid in the stomach. The fat matrix does not release the acid in the stomach due to the high pH content. It has to get released in the gastro intestinal tract.

The feed acidifiers partially releases certain acids and helps optimize the pH in the stomach. The development of endogenous HCl production in the animal’s stomach does not get inhibited, due to limited release of acids. Owing to the increase gut related health problem among the animals, it has led to the usage of feed acidifiers. This is expected to create a demand for the feed acidifiers in the upcoming years.
