Abstract:
A study was carried out at the Poultry Department, Faculty of Animal Husbandry, Padjadjaran University, Bandung Indonesia, in order to determine the effect of Noni (Morinda citrifolia L.) juice and Palm sugar (Arenga pinnata) supplementation in drinking water on the lipid profile of broiler chicken. One hundred (100) day old commercial broiler chicks were randomly allocated to four (4) treatment groups as T1, T2, T3 and T4 with 25 birds per treatment group replicated five times of five (5) birds per replicate in a Complete Randomized Design (CRD). The birds in the first group (T1) were given only 0.3% Noni in drinking water, while as other groups were supplemented with 0.3% Noni+2% Palm sugar (T1), 0.3% Noni+3% Palm sugar (T2) and 0.3% Noni+4% Palm sugar (T4). The blood samples were randomly collected from three (3) birds per replicate at the end of the study at 5th week and analyzed for the estimation of blood lipid profile viz. Total Cholesterol, Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL), High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) and Triglycerides. Results revealed that using combination of Noni and Palm sugar significantly (p<0.05) decreased the total Cholesterol, triglyceride and Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) levels. A numerical decrease in the levels of total cholesterol and LDL was observed with increase in the level of Palm sugar among the treatment groups. Highest reductions were observed in the groups supplemented with 0.3% Noni+4% Palm sugar (T4). Although, High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) did not increase in the present study but the ratio between HDL and LDL increased numerically in the treatment groups with increase in the concentration of Palm sugar. Thus, in view of the results obtained, it could be concluded that both Noni and Palm sugar have beneficial health effects with regard to their ability in altering the lipid profile of broiler chicken.
