The role of organic acids in piglet feed

In piglets, organic acids such as citric acid, fumaric acid, and inorganic acids such as phosphates are often used in feeds for piglets. Addition of suitable acidifiers to feeds is beneficial to the digestion of feed by piglets.

Due to the imperfect function of digestive tract of piglets, some feeds will not be digested when piglets are fed early after weaning. This will cause a burden on the digestive system of piglets, which will lead to diarrhea and affect the growth and development of piglets. If you add appropriate amount of organic acid to piglets, you can promote healthy growth of piglets and increase the survival rate of piglets.

Gastric acid is an acidic secretion secreted by the cells of the gastric fundus of the livestock. It has the effects of activating pepsinogen, promoting the secretion of pancreatic juice, bile and gallbladder, promoting the digestion and absorption of nutrients, and inhibiting the growth of harmful microorganisms. According to the determination of piglets in the 8-week-old before the lack of gastric acid secretion, 20 days of age when the stomach ph value of about 3.1, 30-day-old ph value of about 4.0, was weakly acidic. The ph value of adult pigs in the gastric juice is 1.1 to 1.8, and its acidity is strong. Only when the ph
Tests showed that when 2% citric acid was added to the piglet diet, the weight gain in the test group was 15% higher than that in the control group, and the feed utilization efficiency was increased by 9%; 2% lactic acid was added to the piglet diet, and the test group gained more daily than the control group. Increased by 11%. Addition of 1% to 2% of organic acid to the piglet below 30kg is most suitable, and its effect is more obvious.
