Effects of Selected Feed Compounds and Feed Additives on Gastrointestinal Tract Functions in Farm Animals: Health vs. Productivity Perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The composition of diets for farm animals, as well as their supplementation with different feed additives in order to obtain better performance, has evolved over past decades. However, the performance response to many feed compounds and additives, especially in growing animals, is often variable. Specific interactions between dietary components and the gastrointestinal tract (GI) functions can help us to understand the sources of this variability. Furthermore, a physiological approach towards animal diets may assist in formulation of the modern diets that on the one hand will assure animals’ health but also will be financially viable.Thus the primary objective of this report is present the influence of selected feed compounds and feed additives on GI tract homeostasis. Specifically, to demonstrate the relationship between specific dietary protein and peptides, selected feed additives including feed antibiotics, amino acids, and feed acidifiers, as well as selected secondary plant products (plant lectins) on physiological functions of the gastrointestinal tract (including GI motility, gastric and pancreatic secretion, intestinal absorption, GI microflora) in animals, particularly during their growth and development.
