Global feed preservatives market overview:

Preservatives play an important role in food preservation. Preserves for feed are used in feedstuffs of animals to avoid any damage to the feed and increase the preservability. Especially in feeds, antioxidants or preservatives are essential to prevent oxygenation of animal oils and fats. They are also essential in dry feeds. Preserves are available in two forms, namely artificial or naturalpreserves. Artificial preservatives are also called synthetic preservatives. Natural preservatives appear naturally in various forms, such as vitamin E, citric acid and rosemary. They also offer anti-inflammatory health benefits.
