The use of the specific probiotic bacteria Pediococcus acidilactici CNCM I-4622 (MA18/5M), BACTOCELL® improves feed efficiency by utilising sugars which are non-digestible for the bird and producing lactic acid. The lactic acid can be used as a digestible energy source for the bird, as well as reducing gut pH which limits the development of pathogens and favours beneficial bacteria population development, as well as dietary calcium absorption.
