Un estudio realizado en Huila, Colombia, probó los efectos del aditivo de alimentos diformato de potasio sobre el desempeño de la tilapia juvenil. Los resultados mostraron un índice de productividad de peces mejorado, menor mortalidad y mejoras en el aumento
A study conducted in Huila, Colombia, tested the effects of the feed additive potassium diformate on the performance of juvenile tilapia. Results showed an enhanced fish productivity index, lower mortality and improvements in weight gain.
The effects of the dietary acidifier and feed additive potassium diformate (KDF) were tested in diets of juvenile Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer) in Thailand. Results show that including KDF at 0.5 percent in the diets can help improve growth, survival
Much of the chemical breakdown of foodstuffs begins in the stomachs of animals through acidification. Effective use of digestive biology is a goal in aquaculture, so dietary acidifiers have been gaining interest in recent years.
As examined in various studies, potassium diformate can improve the growth and health status of pangasius when the dietary acidifier is included in feed.
In a laboratory trial, juvenile pangasius given a diet with 0.2 percent potassium diformate (KDF) had better weight gain, feed conversion and survival than fish that did not receive KDF.
Some of the more promising alternatives to antibiotics for the treatment of Nile tilapia are found in the group of organic acids and their salts.
