role of ammonium bicarbonate

1. Basic introduction to ammonium bicarbonate

Ammonium bicarbonate, also known as baking soda powder and baking powder, is a colorless, transparent, smelly crystalline powder, which is widely used in food, medicine, cosmetics, feed and other industries. The role in feed is mainly manifested in the following aspects.

2. Promote feed digestion and absorption

Ammonium bicarbonate can produce carbon dioxide gas in the gastrointestinal tract of livestock and poultry, promote the formation of an acidic environment, and make indigestible feed ingredients such as protein easier to digest and absorb, thereby improving feed utilization and reducing feed waste.

3. Improve the nutritional value of feed

Due to the strong alkalinity of ammonium bicarbonate, it can neutralize some of the acids in the feed, making the nutrients in the feed easier to be absorbed by the animals, and at the same time, it can also increase the nitrogen content in the feed and improve the protein quality of the feed.

4. Antibacterial and disease prevention

Ammonium bicarbonate can produce antibacterial substances, play an obvious antibacterial role in animals, and can effectively prevent gastrointestinal diseases in livestock and poultry. At the same time, the antibacterial effect of ammonium bicarbonate can also reduce the number of microorganisms in the feed and reduce the deterioration of the feed.

5. Promote growth

Ammonium bicarbonate can also promote the growth of livestock and poultry, causing them to gain weight more quickly, and improve meat production and egg production. This is because ammonium bicarbonate can improve the absorption and utilization of nutrients in the animal's body, and can also enhance the animal's disease resistance and improve immunity.

6:Ammonium bicarbonate fertilizer can make crops grow better. Photosynthesis can also be carried out, and it can be placed directly in the soil as a low fertilizer. It can also be used to fertilize crops at a later stage, and ammonium bicarbonate is very cheap. And the effect is very obvious. 

To sum up, ammonium bicarbonate is an important feed additive in feed with the functions of promoting digestion and absorption, improving nutritional value, antibacterial and disease prevention, and promoting growth. However, when using ammonium bicarbonate, it is also necessary to pay attention to the appropriate amount and not to add too much, so as not to cause adverse effects.
