Feed Flavors Market Overview
Feed flavors are basically the compounds that result in the enhancement of the smell and taste of the feed. This improvement of the feed stimulates the feed intake of the animals. In other words, feed flavors can also be known as palatability modifiers.
Palatability is a feature of feed that summons a sensory response in the animal. Livestock animals generally deny the consumption of feed contaminated with unwanted materials and smell. The best solution for this is flavor additives that make the feed consumable for the animals.
Growth in Demand for Livestock Amplifies Demand for Feed Flavor Market
Animals rely on their sense of taste and smell to assess desirable feed. The live stocks are very sensitive to the changes of taste or flavor in the diet. Bitter tastes or odd odors could lead to low feed intake. This would directly have a negative effect on the yields of milk and reduced return on investment for producers since recover milk production takes time.
To overcome these entire adverse situations, feed flavor plays a significant role. Some studies suggest that older dairy cows prefer citric tastes and aroma. The addition of feed flavor imparts both taste and aroma to the feedstuffs, which maintain consistency in the feed consumption.
The various flavors that can be used caramel toffee, coconut essence, dairy essence, garlic, peppermint, citrus, strawberry, and others. In this manner, the feed flavor market is fuelled up with an increase in the demand and mass production of dairy products.
