Nutrivert: Postbiotics and the Promise of Non-Antibiotic Growth Promotion
According to some predictions, antibiotic-resistant bacteria will kill 10 million people and cause tremendous economic loss by 2050. A primary driver of selection for antibiotic-resistant bacteria is overuse of antibiotics in livestock, where the consumption of antibiotics by animals is forecast to rise to 200,000 tons annually by 2030. So far, non-antibiotic growth promoters have been unable to compete with antibiotics in reducing feed costs. Nutrivert’s non-antibiotic products exploit the previously unknown mechanism of action of antibiotic growth promoters, with results that so far have shown promise in testing in pigs and broilers.
