The aim of this Special Issue was to publish high-quality papers on poultry nutrition and the inter-relations between nutrition, metabolism, gut microflora, and poultry performance. Therefore, we present here original research articles in the following topics:

– the nutrient requirements of poultry;

– the impact of dietary fibre on poultry health and performance;

– the use of feed additives to improve gut microflora and performance;

– the effect of feeding on poultry meat and egg quality;

– factors that cause variation in feed ingredients used in poultry diets;

– alternative feed ingredients for use in poultry feed formulations;

– the impact of gastrointestinal pH on nutrient bioavailability and the intestinal microbiota in poultry;

– phytate and xylan ‘susceptibility’ in relation to the effects of enzymes;

– factors that influence reactivity and enzyme efficacy;

– in vitro models to determine the digestibility of poultry diets.
