Absolutely correct comment about synthetic betaine. In fact sometimes synthetic betaine may cause more harm if the chloride content is too high. Not only that, if betaine with high chloride content is kept mixed with premixes then it may cause severe damage to the premix. The main constraint towards usage of natural betaine is the price - probably. However, if synthetic betaine with low chloride c ...

Antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) have been an integral part of the poultry feed industry for more than fifty years. However, a search for the alternatives to the AGPs has been initiated since their prolonged use has precipitated some problems such as development of resistant strains within groups of primary pathogens or opportunistic bacteria and break down of the symbiosis between the animal an ...
