The scientific findings of Phytobiotics are now also part of the new book “Feed Additives: Aromatic Plants and Herbs in Animal Nutrition and Health”.
A new compendium has been published recently: “Feed Additives: Aromatic Plants and Herbs in Animal Nutrition and Health” by Panagiota Florou-Paneri, Efterpi Christaki and Ilias Giannenas, exploring the use of feed additives from botanical origin in animal nutrition.
In addition to providing latest details about the development of bacteria resistance to antibiotic compounds, this new book aims at highlighting holistic approaches on how plant-derived substances can help to support animal health, including poultry, pigs, ruminants and aquatic animals. It summarizes the latest knowledge on botanical substances, covering recent data in vitro and in vivo research.
This book is highly recommended for nutritionists, veterinarians, agricultural scientists and food scientists among others.
