Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy Analysis and Evaluate Cumin Seeds and Their Essential Oil as Growth Promoters of New Zeland White Rabbits
M.A. EL-Manylawi and Hanaa F.M. Ali

Abstract:
Present study was aimed to investigate the chemical composition of cumin seeds essential oil by using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS), also evaluate the effect of cumin seeds at two levels (0.25 and 0.50%) and its essential oil at four levels (25, 50, 100 and 200 mg kg-1 b.wt.) on growing New Zealand White (NZW) rabbits performance. Furthermore, a change in blood constituents was measured as indicators of metabolic enzymes. GC-MS data indicated that 28 constituents were identified, representing (91.37%) of the total amount of essential oil. Significant effects of cumin seeds and its essential oil on growing performance, digestibility and some metabolic enzymes functions were observed at some levels either from cumin seed or its essential oil.
