Effect of caprylic, capric and oleic acid on growth of rumen and rabbit caecal bacteria
Journal of Animal and Feed Sciences
In a search for alternatives of in-feed antibiotics, the antimicrobial activity of caprylic (C8:0), capric (CI 0:0) and oleic (C 18:1) acid was investigated in pure cultures of 19 strains of rumen and rabbit caecal bacteria, and in incubations of the rumen and rabbit caecal contents. In glucose-grown bacterial cultures the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of caprylic acid ranged from 1 to 3 uTml 1 . Two strains of Bacteroides ovatus were less susceptible to capric than to caprylic acid.doi:10.22358/jafs/67904/2002 fatcat:n4ymydq4frcedmqtqd2lssabqm
