Feed additives produced by GM microorganisms (GMMs).

The potential and actual applications of genetically modified microorganisms (GMMs) in animal probiotics, digestibility enhancers, silage additives, preservatives and amino acids for technological and nutritional purposes and biomasses obtained as side streams (coproduct of feed additives) of biotechnological industries are described, with emphasis on safety, efficacy and regulatory aspects of GMMs in feed uses in the European Union (EU).
