Abstract:
Background and Objective: Poultry meat has many desirable nutritional characteristics, which affected with many factors like feed additives. The medicinal plants as one of important feed additives has strong effects on fat contents and blood parameters. This study was aimed to evaluate Black seeds (Nigella sativa), Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum), Moringa (Moringa oleifera), Clitoria (Clitoria ternatea), Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) and Vitamin E effects on broiler fatty acids content and blood parameters. Materials and Methods: Among 105 one day old males chicks were used, they were allotted to 7 treatments with 3 replicates. The birds were fed balanced rations, supplemented with tested seeds and Vitamin E. Fatty acids in abdominal fat pad (ADFP) were determined using Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer (GC-MS). Results: Fatty acids profile analysis showed that the use of Moringa (MORS) lead to highest content of short fatty acids and mono-unsaturated acids content, while the addition of sunflower (SFS) resulted in the highest medium chain fatty acids and omega-3 content, however, the use of clitoria (CLIS) resulted in the highest long chain fatty acids and omega-9 content. On the other hand, the fenugreek (FENS), supplements led to the highest content of total saturated fatty acids. Nevertheless, the use of black seeds resulted in the highest content of total unsaturated fatty acids, poly-unsaturated fatty acids and essential fatty acids. There was no significant difference (p>0.05) in cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL and LDL among the different seeds, however, the use of CLIS, lead to a reduction in all the above parameters. Conclusion: The tested seeds affected the fatty acids content while the blood parameters did not affected significantly.
