Advantages of Cinnamaldehyde Used as a Feed Ingredient

The long-term addition of antibiotics in animal feed leads to a decline in animal immunity, bacteria resistance, and environment pollution. So is there any alternative?

Yes, absolutely. Cinnamaldehyde is one of the good choices. 

- Anti-mildew

During the storage of feed, especially in a humid environment, mildew easily occurs, which has a great impact on the breeding industry. Cinnamaldehyde has antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral effects, and it can inhibit fungi such as Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Penicillium tangerum, Fusarium moniliforme, Alternaria alternata, Geotrichum candidum, yeast. It's also good at killing viruses. Adding cinnamaldehyde in the feed can keep a long time without mold, color or taste.

- Promote Growth

The stimulation of cinnamaldehyde on gastrointestinal villi can improve the digestive system function of livestock and poultry, strengthen the physique and help growth, especially for piglets, which can effectively prevent the occurrence of diarrhea under the condition of incomplete digestive function of piglets. Cinnamaldehyde not only has a good effect on pig, but also can be used in chicken, duck and cattle feed. Different from other growth promoters, cinnamaldehyde can increase the nitrogen storage in animal feed (about 7%) which is the main component of muscle cells.

- Increase Intake

Cinnamaldehyde is a kind of spice, which can improve the taste of feed and promote the intake of livestock and poultry. There is a very interesting phenomenon - if the traditional brine used for making pot-stewed vegetables is added to livestock and poultry feed, the feed intake of livestock and poultry will obviously increase. This is because there are Chinese medicinal materials such as cinnamon and star anise in the brine, among which cinnamaldehyde exists.

- No Residue

After eating feed containing cinnamaldehyde, 90% of the absorbed components are excreted in urine after 24 hours, 5% are excreted with feces, and the remaining 5% are decomposed into nutrients after being absorbed for 24 hours. There is no harmful residue in meat.

- Safe and Nontoxic

Cinnamaldehyde is recognized as a safe and nontoxic substance by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (21 CFR 182.60); the American Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA) indicates that cinnamaldehyde is a safe and nontoxic food flavor component (FEMA,1965); the Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) also states that cinnamaldehyde is safe as a food additive (JECFA No.656).
