Research interests

Dr. Slominski is focused on:

  • Development of new generation enzyme supplements for poultry and swine.
  • Enzyme hydrolysis products, yeast-derived products, and nucleotides as prebiotics and natural alternatives to antibiotics in poultry and swine nutrition.
  • Non-starch polysaccharides, resistant starch, oligosaccharides, glucosinolates, phytate, glycoproteins and dietary fiber components: Measurement and relevance to feedstuffs quality and exogenous enzyme application.
  • Quality characteristics and nutritive value of new feed ingredients.

Current research projects

  • Effective use of novel canola feed ingredients.
  • Novel bioactives of yeast: Enzymatic release, identification and their prebiotic effects.
  • Understanding the impacts of canola meal on gut microbiota and potential prebiotic effect of enzymatically-released bioactive fibre components and the long term effects of high levels of canola meal inclusion.
  • Development of a tool for rapid analysis of glucosinolate content in canola meal.
