About this book

The book covers wide area of knowledge of dietary modulation of the gastrointestinal function in young animals through different kinds of feed additives: probiotics, prebiotics, organic acids, novel sources of feed enzymes, bioactive components and metabolic modifiers. The role of nutrition in relation to immune response and animal health, the problem of antinutrients in animal nutrition as well as biotechnological and ecophysiological aspects of nutrition is also discussed. The book provides a comprehensive review and future perspectives in the modern nutrition of the growing animals.
