The awareness of overused of antibiotics in livestock has been arisen recently. This is due to the emergence of antibiotic-resistance strains which make them more difficult to treat infections caused by the resistant bacteria. Therefore, this article will briefly discussed about the potential of using condensed tannins isolated from Acacia mangium to inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella sp. From the study, condensed tannin shows a good inhibitory activity against tested strains at the concentration of 100 mg/mL which comparable with Vancomycin 30 µg. In future, this compound could be a used as antibacterial agent to treat bacterial infection, especially for livestock animal.
