Energy is a major driver of feed costs in poultry production. While the energy metabolism is influenced by many factors, the digestive microbiota plays a central role in carbohydrates digestion. It is estimated that, in poultry, 5 to 30% of the total energy requirement is provided by the microbiota. In this white paper, you will find:

  • Main knowledges about the energy metabolism in laying hens
  • Insights into the microbiota key role in the energy metabolism
  • Mechanisms of Pediococcus acidilactici ​CNCM I-4622 (MA 18/5M) involved in feed efficiency
  • Zootechnical benefits associated with microbiota modulation in a dietary energy dilution context
