Abstract:
The purpose of this research work was to investigate the effect of dietary supplementation with different levels of garlic and holy basil leaf powder on chemical composition and cholesterol content of breast and thigh muscles of broiler chicks. A total of 280 day-old broiler chicks were procured and randomly distributed into 7 treatments, each treatment had 4 replicates with 10 chicks in each replicate. T1 was served as control and fed a basal diet formulated as per [3] standards. T2 and T3 were fed with garlic powder @ 0.5, 1% feed, respectively. T4 and T5 were given with holy basil leaf powder @ 0.5, 1% feed, respectively. T6 was fed with garlic powder and holy basil leaf powder @ 0.5% each. T7 was treated with garlic powder and holy basil leaf powder @1.0% each. The breast and thigh muscles were analyzed for moisture, crude protein, ether extract and cholesterol content. Present study depicted that the percent moisture, CP and EE contents of thigh and breast muscles in broilers had no significant difference among the mean values of different treatments. Cholesterol content in thigh muscle was lowest (P<0.05) in T6 & T7 and highest in T1 treatment. Similarly, in breast muscle, was lowest (P<0.05) in T6 & T7 and highest in T1 group. Thus supplementation of garlic and holy basil powder @ 0.5% and 1.0% showed the best results in terms of decreasing cholesterol content.
