Poultry Probiotics

Current Consumer Trends

Poultry Industry

The poultry industry is experiencing a surge in demand for probiotics as producers recognize the potential benefits of incorporating these beneficial bacteria into their operations.

As the industry focuses on sustainable and responsible practices, the demand for probiotics in poultry production is expected to continue rising. Producers are recognizing the value of incorporating probiotics into their management strategies to meet consumer expectations, improve animal welfare, and maintain profitability in an evolving market.

Backyard Chicken Keepers

The demand for probiotics for backyard chickens has seen a significant increase as more people embrace the rewarding experience of raising their own chickens. Backyard chicken keepers are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of maintaining the health and well-being of their flock.

Probiotics Support a Balanced and Healthy Gut Microbiota

A balanced and healthy gut microbiota, in poultry, is crucial for efficient digestion and nutrient absorption. Probiotics help establish and maintain a diverse population of beneficial bacteria in the chicken's gastrointestinal tract, promoting optimal digestion of feed and improving feed conversion efficiency.


By enhancing the gut health of chickens, probiotics can reduce the occurrence of digestive disorders such as diarrhea and clostridial infections. Additionally, probiotics have been shown to strengthen the immune system of chickens, making them more resilient to infectious diseases. They can modulate the immune response, increase antibody production, and enhance the activity of immune cells, contributing to a healthier flock.


Moreover, probiotics may help reduce the colonization of harmful bacteria, such as Salmonella and Campylobacter, thereby improving food safety for both chickens and consumers. Incorporating probiotics into the diet of chickens can lead to improved growth rates, better feed utilization, and enhanced overall performance.
