Possible Interaction: Ammonia and Tannins





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

During a 24 h in vitro caecal fermentation, the utilisation of tannins at 0.75, 1.5, 3, and 6 g/l significantly reduced total gas production and concentrations of ammonia and volatile fatty acids and increased viable counts of enterococci and coliforms.
When fed to piglets at 1.13, 2.25, and 4.5 g/kg, tannins significantly improved feed efficiency and reduced caecal concentrations of ammonia , iso-butyric, and iso-valeric acid.

Direct application of tannins to manure also decreases ammonia emissions.
Several show that the administration of tannins in pigs, chicken, and ruminants decreases the levels of ammonia , p-cresol, skatole, and/or H2S, improving meat/milk quality and reducing manure odor.

A higher level of tannin addition reduced ruminal total VFA concentration, ammonia , in vitro DM digestibility, and in vitro organic matter digestibility of Indigofera and Moringa silages (p<0.05).
Higher addition level of tannin decreased total volatile fatty acid (VFA) and ammonia concentrations of both Indigofera and Moringa silages (p<0.05).
