Dear Joshua, Yes, this is what I see in my daily work and more often. And if you start with acid, be aware that you remove the first water from the pipes as it will be a really dirty game. If you do acids for the first time, it doesn't matter which one you are using.

Christoph Hutter This is a good point! Some of the organic acids can be used as an energy source at lower concentrations, or when used in isolation. This difference can even be seen at the same pH with some acids resulting in blooms and others not. It depends on the microorganisms having the molecular pathway to metabolize the acid. As you say, this is not seen for formic acids. And many blends ...

Faisal Sajjad All organic acids are different. However, in terms of the GIT of the gut, acetic acid (glacial simply implies pure acid) does not really stand out. Acetic acid is one of the more dense organic acids, such that on an equal weight basis pure acetic acid delivers comparable acidification potential to roughly 75% formic acid in high pH feeds where full, or near full dissociation can ...

Dr. Beny Perelman While you are correct that organic acids will not affect the pH of the gut directly, except in the crop, and maybe the slightly more basic micro-environments within the proventriculus/gizzard immediately after a big meal. That does not mean there is no effect in the gut at all. Take formic acid for example. At the normal pH of feed, it will fully dissociate from HCOOH to HCOO- ...

I can only agree that one tends to overestimate the impact of water acidification in Salmonella control. Sure, it is one part of the concept to combat Salmonella. At least in Europe, the chances of introducing Salmonella into broilers via feed and water are minimal. That doesn't mean that biosecurity measures in those vectors shall be neglected (we are using formic acid based acidifiers in the dri ...

@ Dear Dr. Hansen, is there any feedback mechanism involved when exogenous proteases are supplemented in poultry diets. To be more specific-does the presence of exogenous proteases in GIT of the chicken exert some negative feedback mechanism on the production of endogenous proteases?

Just reacting to the original question (do phytases always work in poultry nutrition). Clearly this depends on how you define 'work' i.e. what the expectations you have of the phytase. It would be possible, for example, to manufacture a situation where the efficacy of the added phytase looked very poor e.g. if the diet to which you add the phytase has a high concentration of digestible phosphorus ...

Two of leading Nutritionists Dr Athar (Hi-Tech Feeds) & Dr. Gulraiz (SB Feeds) visited Ghazi Bros (ADDCON business partner in PAK) at IPEX 2017 and showed lot of interest in ADDCON range of products. This is continuation of ADDCON' s growing presence in Pak poultry industry and the trust which we have won through result oriented products. ADDCON continues its growth in PAKISTAN!!!!
