Yucca Extract for Feed Additive

Yucca Extract, yucca schidigera is a plant native to the arid regions of south-western USA and Mexicao. Yucca Extract has been used in livestock and poultry indutries to control the accumulation of ammonia and reduce the odor in animal excreta through direct application on rearing facility or addition in feed. Yucca extract can also be used to reduce ammonia in aquatic environments. Studies have demonstrated that yucca extract is capable of reducing ammonia derived from NH4CI in both freshwater. Interest in yucca extract has extended to its application in the control of ammonia resulting from biogenic processes in shrimp culture.

  • Yucca Extract Benefits
Yucca extract saponins have both current and potential applications in animal and human nutrition. Yucca extracts are extensively used for ammonia and odor control in pig and poultry-raising facilities and in dog and cat foods. Yucca saponins, and perhaps other components of yucca as well, have ammonia-binding activity. When added to the diet, yucca saponins pass through the digestive tract unabsorbed and are excreted in the feces. In the extract, the yucca components bind to ammonia and certain other odiferous compounds and prevent them from being released into the air. In recent studies in England, feeding of yucca extract to dogs and cats was shown to reduce fecal odor and reduce the emission of volatile compounds contributing to fecal odor. Many pet foods and “kitty litter” products now contain yucca extract to reduce these noxious odors.
