Piglet feed adds more citric acid benefits

Before the piglets weighed 30 kg, adding citric acid to the vegetable protein-based diet can effectively improve the digestibility of the feed and the performance of the piglets. Tests have shown that adding citric acid to piglet diets has the following benefits. SWq China Feed Industry Information Network - based on feed, serving animal husbandry

First, reduce the pH value of piglets in the gastrointestinal tract and reduce the incidence of diarrhea. Citric acid can reduce the pH value of the diet, increase the acidity and digestive enzyme activity of the gastrointestinal tract, promote the proliferation of lactic acid bacteria, and inhibit the growth of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus. Adding 0.7% and 1% citric acid to the diet of 42-day-old pigs reduced the pH of the stomach contents from 4.5 to 4.2 and 3.5, respectively, and significantly reduced the number of gastric colon and rectal E. coli . At the same time, lactic acid bacteria and yeasts grow in large quantities, which can effectively prevent digestive disorders and diarrhea caused by bacterial infections.

Second, improve the palatability of the diet and promote the growth of piglets. According to the test, adding 1%~2% citric acid to the diet can increase the feed intake of piglets by 5.2%~19.8%, the daily gain of piglets by 9%~38.67%, and the feed conversion rate by 11%~15%. And adding citric acid is superior to adding other organic acids. SWq China Feed Industry Information Network - based on feed, serving animal husbandry

Third, directly as a dietary ingredient to promote the metabolism of piglets. Citric acid is an important component of the metabolism of food, protein and fat. It is an intermediate of the Krebs cycle, and the released ATP can act as a dietary component. The addition of citric acid to the diet can reduce the loss of piglets due to gluconeogenesis and lipid hydrolysis. The synthesis of ATP in vivo can promote the activity of electron transport system and isocitrate dehydrogenase, and the formation and biology of ATP. The accumulation of total amount plays an important role in promoting the metabolism of piglets and enhancing the utilization of energy and amino acids in piglets.

Fourth, prevent feed oxidation, reduce the weaning stress of piglets. Citric acid is a synergist of feed antioxidants. Its mechanism of action is to block the metal ions in the feed, so that it can not act as a catalytic oxidation reaction. At the same time, due to the low feed intake of early weaned pigs, the utilization of sugar and protein feed is low, the incidence and mortality of diarrhea are high, and the citric acid in the feed can promote the secretion of gastric juice and digestive enzymes, effectively overcoming piglets.
