Abstract

Naturally occurring antimicrobials can be obtained from a variety of sources and may range from acids such as acetic and lactic to essential oils derived from spices. Biological methods such as bacteriocins and bacteriophages can also be used in this manner because of their natural derivation. Such products have the potential to be applied at various stages throughout the poultry production continuum (pre- and post-slaughter).
