Emulsifiers are amphiphilic substances capable of mixing lipids and water. In nonruminant animals, feeding emulsifiers has been shown to increase growth, feed efficiency, and nutrient absorption. In ruminants, emulsifiers have the potential to affect rumen fermentation making fatty acids more available for biohydrogenation and increasing their passage to the small intestine through association with the liquid phase. Research studies on using emulsifying agents as feed additives for dairy cows is very scarce.
