LONDON, Dec. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Animal nutrition is a major business activity across the world and feed additives make an important contribution to all aspects of animal production. With food security and feed additive research and development inextricably linked, the feed additive industry remains an important player in global animal-origin food production for the foreseeable future.
The development and introduction of various new feed additives is a major and practical solution to improving the efficiency of animal production, alleviating environmental pollution, maintaining animal health and welfare, and ensuring that food is safe and of good quality. However, the challenge for the feed additive industry is to continue improving animal productivity so that more human food can be obtained from the limited availability of feed raw material.
This thoroughly revised and updated report covers the complex and divergent legislative requirements for feed additives in the EU and USA. It also includes chapters on the key roles of organic and inorganic acids; antioxidants and autoxidation; flavours; colourants; enzymes; emulsifying and stabilising agents, thickeners and gelling agents; micro-organisms; amino acids; mycotoxin control additives; phytochemicals and phytogenic feed additives; and cocciodiostats and histomonostats.
It also delves in the improvements that feed additives may have on overall animal health and performance, which can influence the characteristics of human food products. Additionally, feed additives can improve the structure of pellet quality, for example, and enhance shelf-life by preventing microbial spoilage and autoxidation of feeds.
