The use of vegetable tannins for animal feed is widely documented in the scientific veterinary literature. Tannins are substances with polyphenolic nature, that can be found under variable amount in almost all the plant species, from which they can be obtained by extraction with water and the following vacuum concentration and spray drying of the raw extracted solution..
The raw material, according to the cases, can be the wood, the bark, the fruits or the leafs of the different plants.
Chemical and organoleptic features making tannins attractive for animal feed are their capability to complex proteins, astringency, anti-parasite and germicide properties. Tannins can be used either for cattle and ruminants, or poultry and swine feed.
