Algae Biomass in Animal Production
Damian Konkol , Wanda Górniak , Marita Świniarska , Mariusz Korczyński
AbstractConstantly increasing populations have forced the producers of food into increasing the scale of their production. Consumers expect that, with the increase in food products, their quality will also improve. This is especially evident in the livestock sector, as the demand for animal protein is systematically increasing. This situation led to the search for innovative products of natural origin that could be used in animal husbandry and breeding. This product could be an alga containing ingredients in its biomass that have a positive impact on animal and human organisms. Not only can algae-based feed additives improve production parameters and animal health, they can also affect the quality of animal products. Several studies have been conducted to develop algae in feed for poultry, pigs, cattle and horses. These studies have shown that the use of algae as feed additives can bring many benefits, due to their unique properties.
