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 the near future.

Dan Hofer, here's the response from Dr. Kuttappan, who presented this research: That’s an interesting question and thanks for asking. Unfortunately, I do not have any information comparing garlic oil by itself vs in combination with oregano oil regarding the differences in antimicrobial activity or gut health benefits in poultry. So, I won’t be able to give you a specific answer for that question.

Plant extracts from hops have been shown to have efficacy against Clostridium perfringens, a causative organism of Necrotic Enteritis.

Dear Dave Zacek , exactly, plant extracts! Because extracts containing a lot of different biologically-active substances, not only essential oils. Different methods of extraction - different composition of extract. A lot of opportunities for new additives development!

How do you make an extract and know the required dosage for usage?

abalu efe Thanks for your interest in the topic. Novus's NEXT ENHANCE 150 is a blend of synthetic thymol and carvacrol (no extraction involved), which gives us better control to ensure the composition of actives in the product. Again, the blend is encapsulated which protects the actives and delivers the required dosage to the animal even after pelleting the diet. The recommended dosage was determined based on the results from a number of dose-response trials evaluating the benefits in improving performance in animals and economic feasibility for the customers.

Can we use liquid preparations of essential oils in case of necrotic enteritis?

Sanjay S Kale Thanks for this question, Sanjay. Here's the response from Dr. Kuttappan: I have not tested other essential oil products, so I won’t be able to tell whether different essential oils will have different effects on necrotic enteritis. I think if a product is capable of preventing or reducing the damage caused by Clostridium perfringens, you should see benefits (whether used as solid or liquid) as long as the actives reach the required site of action (jejunum/ileum in case of necrotic enteritis). One thing to keep in mind while using essential oils products is that most of the active compounds in these products are volatile. So, using an unprotected essential oil product could reduce the stability of your actives and you might lose a significant part of these actives even before it reaches the required site of action. Furthermore, the ease and convenience of administering a solid vs liquid product in your facility need to be considered.

The topic appears apt potentially, as I have not read the details. One wish to ask if vegetable oils may not have similar effects. Could I be honoured with the full article of your work on this topic?
