- @@@@@Rossari Acidifiers :<ul> <li> <strong>Rosscid :</strong> A blend of organic acids with HSCAS & MOS which lower the pH of the gut thereby inhibiting the growth of pathogens in the intestine. Acidic pH in the gut also ensures that there is no competition for the host nutrients between intestinal microflora and the pathogens. <a class=
The pH of the gastric and intestinal chime directly affects the activity of various digestive enzymes and rate of digestion of feedstuffs. Additionally pH affects the species composition of intestinal microflora and prevalence of potential pathogens. pH of GI track contents affects ability of pathogens to colonize the gut. Near natural pH may favor the growth of E. coli and Salmonella. Lower pH values are more conductive to the growth of friendly bacteria like Lactobacilli. Acid type additives are especially useful in young animal feeds because they are relatively inexpensive compared to all natural alternative and often effective against disease causing microbes in gut. Feed additives composed of organic and inorganic acids with volatile fatty acid derivatives can reduce pH around the pathogenic bacteria causing a bacterio-static effect. Simultaneously this product can provide a bactericidal effect by supplying low molecular weight acid molecules that can penetrate cell.
