Study comparing 2 tannins in animal feed suggests compounds could hold multiple benefits

The European researchers behind the research aimed to compare the efficacy condense tannins derived from hazelnut husks, and the more commonly researched sainfoin. Their aim was to determine which of the pair resulted in the greatest reduction of emissions, with hope that the study would shed light on why some tannins show wide variability in their performance in other trials.
