Roth and Kirchgessner (1989) concurred that, despite the lowering of the pH value in the diet with phosphoric acid, no additional growth performance was seen. These results demonstrate that the use of inorganic acids at such high doses has no, or even a negative, effect on growth performance, and it was postulated that this may be due to alteration of electrolyte balance or to feed palatability.
