Sodium bicarbonate plays an important role in animal nutrition today. It is primarily used as a feed supplement for dairy cows, because the buffering capacity of sodium bicarbonate controls the pH of the stomach and prevents gastric reflux.
Sodium bicarbonate is also fed as part of salt in poultry diets.
Sodium bicarbonate is sometimes used to improve eggshell quality or to counteract the effects of heat stress.
