Probiotics are live microorganisms that are intended to have health benefits, especially by improving or restoring the gut microbiota when consumed. These microorganisms, consist mainly of bacteria but also include yeasts. Probiotics can eradicate harmful microorganisms through several molecular events and regulate the immunological response of the host animal for well-being. Probiotics have heralded a new era in animal and human healthcare management.
The prohibition of antibiotics as growth promoters (AGPs) has posed a challenge for animal nutrition, encouraging the development of new strategies for controlling and preventing harmful bacterial colonization. Probiotic supplementation in animal feed supports animal gut health through the modulation of gut microbiota. They can help to balance good and bad bacteria to keep the host body working the way it should and protect the animals from pathogens.
Manufacturing probiotics requires proven technology and sophisticated manufacturing facilities along with good scientific expertise. Apple Biotechnologies precisely meets this requirement by combining professional knowledge, cutting edge technology and a state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities to emerge as the leader in this space.
Probiotics are, in general terms, live microbial feed supplements which provide beneficial effects for the intestinal balance of the host animal. However, in aquaculture they can be defined as live microbial adjuncts which are beneficial for the host animal because of their ability to modify the host-associated or ambient microbial community, leading to more efficient use of feed and enhanced nutritional value, improved immune response and better water quality.
The health of aquatic organisms is heavily influenced by the water they live in. Thousands of microorganisms, including pathogens, live in the culture water and these can deteriorate water quality and cause disease. Probiotics also have the ability to modify the metabolism of microbiota in the shrimp gut to produce short-chain fatty acids for improved digestion. This leads to increased appetite, better growth and improved FCRs – which in turn reduces the amount of waste from uneaten feed and therefore improves water quality.
Probiotics are widely used as animal nutrition. There have been rapid advancements in finding new probiotic applications for animal feed as well as packaged health products for pets. Probiotics are increasingly being used in commercial animal feed such as poultry and cattle to balance the gastrointestinal flora.
Apple Bio Group offers specialised probiotic bacteria and formulations for animal healthcare catering to various segments - companion animals, poultry, cattle and aquaculture. Our probiotic products enhance immune function, digestive health (feed efficiency and growth) which is of prime importance in the animal industry. Supplementation with our probiotic formulations reduces the usage of antibiotics. Our probiotic supplement for Cattle, Sheep, Goats, and Pigs are formulated to contain a diverse range of proven microbial strains to help ensure that your animal's needs are met.
Emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria has created the necessity of replacement of antibiotic with other products like prebiotics, probiotics, organic acid botanicals, and Herbal essential oils. Essential oils (EOs) are important aromatic components of herbs and spices, and are used as natural alternatives for replacing antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) in poultry feed as these have antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-parasitic, and antiviral properties. Beside, other beneficial effects of EOs include appetite stimulation, improvement of enzyme secretion related to food digestion, and immune response activation.
Phytogenic extracts have the unique advantages of being natural and extensive sources, having a low residue, and being pollution-free and renewable. They can relieve the various stresses, including oxidative stress, on animals and even control their inflammation by regulating the signaling pathways of proinflammatory cytokines, improving animal immunity, and improving the structure of microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract, thereby becoming the priority choice for improving animal health.
