Abstract:
Oil source used in broiler diet influences carcass composition by altering fat deposition and fatty acid profile. Thus the study was carried out to evaluate the effect of incorporation of rapeseed oil in broiler ration on breast muscle in broiler chicken. A total of 160 day-old straight run broilers (Vencobb 400) were randomly allotted into four treatment groups (G1, G2, G3 and G4) having four replicates of ten chicks each. The basal diets (G1) were prepared to meet Bureau of Indian Standards (IS 1374; 2007) nutrient requirements included at the rate of 1.5, 3, and 4.5 per cent in pre-starter, starter and finisher ration, respectively. The experimental broiler rations prepared with rapeseed oil replacing 25, 50 and 100 per cent of palm oil in basal diets fed to G2, G3 and G4 group birds, respectively. Six birds from each group were randomly selected and slaughtered on 42nd day to studycarcass composition. The dietary inclusion of rapeseed oil decreased (P<0.001) crude fat content of its breast muscles compared to completely palm oil fed group. However, other parameters like yield, meat bone ratio, moisture and crude protein were not affected by the dietary fat source. Polyunsaturated rich rapeseed oil and their combination had no negative effects on breast muscle yield but improved meat quality by reducing crude fat content without affecting protein content which is desirable character in consumer’s preference
