The use of thyme oils, an alternative to antibiotics for pig breeding.

The Institute of  Investigation and Agricultural Development and Food  in Murcia has developed a five-year research project financed by FEDER, which proves that the use of essential oils of thyme can be an alternative to the use of antibiotics for pig breeding.

These oils, apart from achieving similar effects, add a nutritional value to meat by enriching it with Biohealthy compounds.
