Dietary butyrate – fundamental for the intestine: what does it do in poultry?

Speaker: Dr Joshua GONG, Guelph R&D Centre, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

Depending on its galenic form, butyrate increases growth performance and breast muscle deposition in young animals. It also reduces the lipid deposition in broiler strains as measured as abdominal fat and intramuscular breast fat and shown by reduction in several enzymes involved in lipogenesis or lipolysis.
Butyrate modifies the gut functioning and the gut microbiome favorizing the beneficial bacteria.
