Humans have always used plants, both for their benefits and for their flavouring properties. Faced with a trend towards demedication, their use is becoming more and more widespread, particularly in pig, poultry or ruminant farming.

It has been found that the active agents of plant extracts or essential oils contribute to improving the performance of animals, such as dairy cows, calves, broilers, laying hens and meat cattle.

Plants can affect both nutritional efficiency and animal behaviour and welfare. They are veritable allies for animal health, and, inseparably, for human health. 

Knowledge of plants and human health at the service of animal feed

At HERBAROM, we have been naturally focused on animal nutrition for more than 15 years now. In fact, with our knowledge of the benefits of plants, we are convinced of the interdependencies between human, animal and ecosystem health.

Our expert teams carefully monitor and strictly apply all changes to European regulations applicable to this market.

HERBAROM, a complete range of plant ingredients for better performing animals

Essential oils

Essential oils are volatile products obtained by distillation or cold expression of plants or parts of plants. They have many active components. They are naturally synthesised by plants as a means of defence. Essential oils are particularly beneficial thanks to their high concentration of active agents and the complexity of their composition, offering them multiple properties.

Aromatic substances

Aromatic substances are purified molecules that may be natural or synthetic in origin. As with essential oils, their active agents are highly concentrated. However, in organic farming, only the use of natural sources is permitted.

Liquid extracts

Liquid extracts are obtained by maceration of plants in a solvent: water, oil, alcohol, etc. We will find different molecules in the extract depending on the nature of the solvent used. Their use may be easier than that of essential oils (concentration, solubility, etc.).

Plant powders

Plant powders are obtained by drying and finely grinding parts of certain plants of interest.

Each type of ingredient has specific benefits.
Our role: to support you in selecting the right ingredients according to your specific objectives.
