Special Issue "Recent Advances in Fermented Feed"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (14 July 2023) | Viewed by 2370
Globally, many agricultural and sideline products, such as seed meal, straw, and residue, are discarded daily due to their poor feeding effect and content of anti-nutritional factors, leading to a large waste of resources and environmental pollution. Fermented feed uses these products as raw materials. It uses microbial fermentation techniques to transform and decompose the macromolecular substances in raw feed materials to produce raw feed materials with good palatability which are rich in a large number of active probiotics and their metabolites. Fermented feed is rich in organic acids, digestion and absorption enzymes, vitamins, free amino acids, active peptides, growth-promoting factors, and other substances, which can not only improve the absorption and utilization of feed by animals and reduce production costs, but also regulate intestinal flora, promote intestinal health and reduce the occurrence of livestock and poultry diseases.
The intestinal microecological balance is an important sign of human and animal health. The intestinal flora has many functions, such as nutrient processing, energy metabolism, immunity, and influence on the nervous system through the brain–gut axis. Therefore, probiotics and other fermented products can regulate the intestinal flora and promote human and animal health.
This Special Issue aims to publish the research results of fermented feed, new feed additives, and related fermentation products and fermentation technology.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
