Phytogenic feed additives (PFA), also known as phytobiotics or botanicals, are commonly defined as various plant secondary compounds (PSC) and metabolites with beneficial effects on animal health and production, including feed and animal products. Botanicals in animal production have different applications, including sensory phytogenic additives, technological additives for improvement of feed quality and safety, as well as additives promoting animal health and welfare, acting as immunomodulators, antioxidants, digestive stimulants, and substances that can increase the performance and quality of animal products. This study is focused on available microencapsulation techniques of EOs to increase the bioavailability of active compounds, as well as their application in the animal feed additive industry.
