The objective of such solutions must be to ensure a level of efficacy at least equivalent to that obtained with the products they are designed to replace, while preserving the animals physiology in an environmentally-friendly manner. One of these solutio...

Good article about poultry growth promotersI think this concept of the use of spices extracts and essential oils will continue for some time and I think this will be the concept of tomorrow. We were reviewing many scientific papers specially from collegues from India, China and Egypt in the past 15 years and I think this is the time to harvest the outcome of these papers and apply it in the industry. Good Luck.

Interesting article about poultry growth promoters. Do essential oils really have an effect on optimising feed intake, especially at the level of the taste buds, since we know that chickens have very few taste buds?

Is there a significant increase in feed intake compared to a control group?

Thanks for your comments about poultry growth promoters.
To answer some question : yes we have results and stimaulation of feed intake in broilers and other species.

In India and in Nigeria, we have not actually Distributors !

Thanks for this informative article about a natural alternative to poultry growth promoters. Recently, in USA and other countries pressure on animal producers is increasing to reduce or even ban use of AGP in animal feeds. There are a number of alternative candidates in the market, and phytogenic products one of them.

We carried out a number of experiments in previous years using different phytogenic feed additives and also found some interesting results.

Present article is informative, however there is need to investigate the effects of phytogenic feed additives in more details, for examples their effects on digestibility of different nutrients, their synergistic as well as antagonistic effects on animal performance and their residual level in products should also be investigated.

we are looking forward for more research in this area.

One of the barriers to using more essential oils has been cost. Carvacrol from Oregano Oil is seen to be effective but the cost can be high. Paramount Aromachem India now have a 2000 tonne facility for the production of Carvacrol and L- carvone dervied for Orange Oil Terpene D- Limonene.
The purity is 99.6^ and costs about 1/3 that of Oregano oils
