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. Bactocell can also reinforce the birds immune system and vaccination response.
