Effect of Adding Chicory Fructans in Feed on Fecal and Intestinal Microflora and Excreta Volatile Ammonia

Yusrizal and T. C. Chen

Abstract:
This study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of adding chicory fructans in feed on fecal ammonia and Microflora. Adding Raftifeed® to the diet reduced volatile ammonia and fecal pH in fresh fecal in the first four weeks of production. Reductions (P<0.05) in total aerobe and E. coli counts of fecal broiler were recorded for inulin or oligofructose treatment at the 4th week. Oligofructose increased the lactobacilli counts in the gizzard and small intestine contents of female broiler. Inulin or oligofructose supplementation reduced (P<0.05) total Campylobacter counts in the large intestine. The Lactobacilli counts of fecal in the female birds were also increased when the diets supplemented with either inulin or oligofructose. The Campylobacter count of the male birds and the Salmonella counts of the female birds were lower (P<0.05) in cecal contents for the chicory fructan supplemented birds.
