Since 2006, there has been an EU-wide ban on the use of antibiotics as performance-enhancing feed additives. The goal is to reduce the use of antibiotics overall and, as a result, the development of antibiotic resistance. In light of this, as well as of the mounting pressure to improve product quality and a greater focus on animal welfare, the use of natural additives is on the rise. These additives can improve or change, for example, the organoleptic or visual properties of a feed. This can improve the product’s palatability. Dyes are another sensory feed additive, and can enhance the colour of decorative fish and/or birds. Additives can also improve a feed’s digestibility so that the animal can make better use of the individual nutrients in the feed. Another reason why the use of additives in the feed industry is increasing is to improve the storage properties of feeds. Some additives, for example, have an anti-oxidative effect, which can prolong the feed’s shelf life.
