Assessment of phytogenics is evolving – new article published in All About Feed

Assessment of phytogenics is progressing. Compared to 15 years ago, today phytogenics receive much greater attention for the use in animal feed as a tool in strategies designed to reduce the use of antibiotic growth promotors in animal protein production.

However, surveys have shown that many producers and feed manufacturers are still unsure of the efficacy of phytogenics, because of the perception that products are lacking scientific proof.

A new article looks at the progress made in the evaluation of phytogenics from a scientific and a commercial perspective. Find out what Dr. Kostas Mountzouris, Associate Professor of animal nutritional biotechnology at the Agricultural University of Athens in Greece says on this topic from his experience in the research world.
