Panish Patel Here's a response from Dr. Kuttappan, who presented this research: Thanks for your question and I believe that you are referring to “replacing acidifiers in feed with essential oil-based eubiotic products”. In our experience, acidifiers are also effective in improving feed quality and in improving the quality of gut microbiota in animals. However, there are products with different types of organic acids with different protection technologies so we cannot generalize their effects or benefits. I think the best answer to your question is that selecting appropriate eubiotic product/s could depend on the type of challenges you have. Moreover, rather than replacing an acidifier with essential oils, it might be better to use a combination in order to get a synergistic effect. Some of the current research at Novus is focused on this aspect and hopefully we will have a better understanding of the synergistic effect in near future.
