What are the functions of Clostridium butyricum as an additive in feed

what is clostridium butyricum?

Clostridium butyricum is an obligate anaerobic, gram-positive bacillus with bluntly rounded ends, slightly swollen middle, straight rod-shaped or slightly curved, single or paired, short-chain, occasionally Filamentous bacteria, flagella all over the body, can move. Spores ovoid, eccentric or subterminal. Gram-stained bacteria are positive in the initial culture, and the bacteria can become negative when they grow a little longer. Form white or cream-colored irregular round colonies on agar plates, slightly protruding and 1-3 mm in diameter. It does not hydrolyze gelatin, does not digest serum protein, and can ferment carbohydrates such as glucose, sucrose, fructose, and lactose to produce acid. A notable feature is the production of amylase, which hydrolyzes starch but not cellulose. The final metabolites of hydrolyzed starch and sugars were butyric acid, acetic acid and lactic acid, and a small amount of propionic acid and formic acid were also found, and the nitrate reduction experiments were all negative. The mole fraction of G+C content of Clostridium butyricum DNA was 27%~28%.

clostridium butyricum benefits  ?

Clostridium butyricum is used as a feed additive in feed, and it can reflect five biological characteristics in the animal intestine: one is to promote the proliferation and development of animal intestinal beneficial flora (Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus), inhibit harmful bacteria and The growth and reproduction of spoilage bacteria can correct intestinal flora disturbance and reduce the occurrence of enterotoxins; the second is the production of vitamin B, vitamin K, amylase and other substances in the intestinal tract of animals, which has a health care effect; the third is Clostridium butyricum The main metabolite of butyric acid is the main nutrient for the regeneration and repair of intestinal epithelial tissue cells; the fourth is anaerobic or facultative anaerobic bacillus, which is not affected by gastric acid, bile acid, etc.; Strong tolerance, compatible use. The use of Clostridium butyricum as a new feed additive is of great significance in reducing the abuse of antibiotic products in current feed, reducing drug residues in meat products, reducing drug resistance of animal bacteria and ensuring animal health.

As a new feed additive, Clostridium butyricum fermented feed is the first choice for protecting intestinal health and improving production performance. It is of great significance to reduce the abuse of antibiotic products in feed, reduce drug residues, reduce the resistance of animal bacteria and protect animal health.

It has the effect of activating macrophages and NK cells, reducing anti-nutritional factors in feed, improving nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins, organic acids and organic phosphorus, and improving palatability, intake and utilization; added to animal feed has The potential of replacing antibiotics in the prevention and treatment of related animal diseases, inhibiting the occurrence of endogenous diseases, and enhancing the body's immunity and the number of leukocytes in immunity, as well as improving the production performance and product quality of animals, reducing the amount of antibiotics, and improving economic efficiency.

Biological chili oil powder is composed of Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus licheniformis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Enterococcus faecalis, Clostridium butyricum, compound enzyme molasses, enzyme preparation, chili powder, chili seed meal and other nutritional raw materials. Product features: After being fermented by microorganisms such as Enterococcus faecalis, Bacillus subtilis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Clostridium butyricum, etc., feed raw materials such as chili meal and chili powder can produce a large amount of digestive enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, and mineral elements. and other products are conducive to the absorption and utilization of animal body, improve the utilization rate of feed, enhance the immunity of animals, and be beneficial to animal health.

Bio-chili oil powder is rich in crude protein, fat, sugar, vitamin B1, B2 and various essential amino acids; the egg white is clear and viscous after use for about a week; the fat content in the egg is high, the yolk is large, the taste is good, and the nutrition is rich. Capsaicin, the biologically active substance in pepper, has a stimulating effect on the mouth and stomach of eggs and poultry, can enhance gastrointestinal motility, promote the secretion of digestive juice, and strengthen the stomach and aid digestion.
