Abstract:
To study the hypolipidemic effect of dietary supplementation of amla fruit powder on broiler chicken meat, 300 commercial broiler chicks were randomly distributed into six treatments having five replicates consisting of ten birds each. The chicks fed with standard basal diet in two different growth phases i.e. starter (0-28d) and finisher (29-42 d). The first group was kept as control (T1) and given the basal diet without antibiotic, while second group (T2) was given basal diet with antibiotic. In third (T3), fourth (T4), fifth (T5) and sixth (T6) groups, basal diet was supplemented with amla fruit powder @ 0.25%, 0.50%, 0.75% and 1% respectively. The birds were weighed fortnightly to calculate performance parameters viz. feed intake, body weight change and FCR. Meat cholesterol of the experimental birds under different dietary treatments ranged between 47.32 (mg/100g fat) to 50.59 (mg/100g fat). Dietary supplementation of amla fruit powder showed significant reduction in the meat cholesterol of the experimental birds in groups supplemented with 0.75% amla powder (T5) and 1% amla powder (T6). Saturated fatty acids content of different dietary treatments was ranged between 37.80 (%) to 38.02 (%) and didn’t differ significantly as compared to control group. Mean values for monounsaturated fatty acids content were ranged from 50.34 % to 50.36 % and also didn’t differ significantly among the supplemented and control group. Polyunsaturated fatty acid and mean values for conjugated linoleic acid content among different dietary treatments ranged from 9.95% to 9.98% and 62.23 (mg/100g fat) to 62.64 (mg/100g fat) respectively and didn’t differ significantly supplemented and control group.
