Effect of Nanocapsule Level on Broiler Performance and Fat Deposition

Sundari, Zuprizal, Tri Yuwanta and Ronny Martien    

Abstract: This research investigated the effects of levels turmeric extract nanocapsule or nanoparticle (NP) in ration on broiler performance and fat deposition. Seventy-two Lohmann broilers chicks were randomly divided into 6 treatments with 3 replications, each complied 4 broilers. Six treatments were Basal ration+bacitracin 50 ppm (T0), Basal-Ration/BR (T1), BR+nanocapsule 0.2% (T2), BR+nanocapsule 0.4% (T3), BR+nanocapsule 0.6% (T4), BR+nanocapsule 0.8% (T5). The analyzed variables covered production performances (feed consumption, weight gain, feed conversion ratio (FCR), carcass weight), fats deposition (abdominal fat, subcutaneous fat, EPA, DHA, total cholesterol). The data were subject to one way ANOVA analysis followed by Duncan test in case of significant effect. Results showed that the nanocapsule levels significantly (p<0.01) affected abdominal fat, increased meat EPA and DHA. It showed significant (p<0.05) effects on subcutaneous fat, total cholesterol of liver and weight gain, but no significant (p>0.05) effects on feed consumption, FCR and carcass weight. Accordingly, 0.4% turmeric extract nanocapsule, equal to 50 ppm bacitracin, was a compatible feed additive for broiler chicken ration to improve the meat quality of DHA-enriched and least-subcutaneous fat without negatively affecting performance.
