Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to assess the effects of adding silicate minerals in dietary of broiler chickens on the broiler thigh meat moisture, ash, crude protein, intramuscular fat and abdominal fat. This study was accomplished in a completely randomized design with total four hundred forty eight 1 day old broilers. Chickens were randomly assigned to 7 dietary treatments (control and 15, 30 g kg-1 kaolin, bentonite and zeolite) with four replicates per treatment and sixteen birds per replicate. Intramuscular fat and abdominal fat were lower in treatments with 15 g kg-1 bentonite and kaolin compared with control treatment (p<0.05). The ash content of meat in treatment containing 30 g kg-1 zeolite was significantly (p<0.05) higher compared to treatment containing 15 g kg-1 bentonite and control. Meat moisture and protein content did not differ significantly (p>0.05) between experimental treatments. It may be concluded that inclusion of kaolin, bentonite and zeolite as feed additive in broiler diet have positive influence on chemical composition of meat.
