Nature offers a massive potential with a large number of botanical compounds and various mode of action.
Delacon’s phytogenic feed additives contain more than 100 natural ingredients being part of many different active ingredient groups, such as pungent substances, bitter substances, essential oils, saponins, flavonoids, mucilages and tannins. Owing to this wide range, PFAs offer much more than flavoring properties. The effects are many, while mostly targeting the enhancement of livestock performance.
The impacts can include:
- Sensorial stimulation and palatability
- Increased enzymatic activity in the intestinal tract
- Improved nutrient utilization
- Antioxidant effects
- Enhanced quorum sensing inhibition leading to reduced bacterial pathogenicity,
- Improved gut integrity
- Improved reproductive performance.
Phytogenic feed additives using plant extracts show wider modes of action in animal nutrition compared to chemical nature-identical substances. This advantage is based on the synergistic effects of all agents within a plant, which have not been reduced to the effects of a single lead substance. This natural synergy, combined with sustainability and safety, makes our natural feed additives a top solution platform in multispecies animal nutrition.
