Effect of short- and medium-chain fatty acids on gut health in monogastric animals
The research interest on antibiotic alternatives has been increased due to the development of antimicrobial resistance and the intensified concern about public health safety and sustainability. The main objective of this thesis belonging to the Lipoxifeed project (RIS3CAT; COMRDI16-1-0033) is to evaluate the potential of short- and medium-chain fatty acids on gut health and performance of broilers and weaned piglets.
