The use of inulin in poultry feeding: a review. by Bucław M. 2016 Animal Physiology and Animal Nutrition 100: 1015-1022
In Significant Impact Groups: Feed / gut health \ Feed additives and supplements
Species targeted: Poultry;
Since the European Union enforced the ban on antibiotic growth promoters in 2006, the research has been focused on natural feed additives which would have a proven positive impact on both production and animal health. Inulin is both the most commonly used and the most effective probiotic additive. The mechanism of inulin interactions with the avian body is complex, multidirectional and not fully understood. Despite a number of unresolved issues, many authors have demonstrated the positive impact of inulin on the host organism. The reports on inulin effects on the body and performance of poultry are often contradictory, as the effectiveness of this prebiotic is strongly dependent on the type and dose used, and the duration of its administration.
