Abstract: This research investigated the effects of liquid turmeric extract nanocapsule levels in drinking water on broiler performance and total cholesterol. Eighty-four Lohmann broilers chicks were randomly divided into 7 treatments with 3 replications, each with 4 broilers. Seven treatments were drinking water (DW) + additive bacitracin 12 mg/1000 ml (P1), DW only (P2), DW + 2% nanocapsule (P3), DW + 4% nanocapsule (P4), DW + 6% nanocapsule (P5), DW + 8% nanocapsule (P6) and DW + 10% nanocapsule (P7). The analyzed variables covered production performances (weight gain, feed consumption, feed conversion ratio and water consumption) and total cholesterol (serum, meat and liver). The data were subject to one-way ANOVA analysis followed by Duncan’s test in case of significant effect. The results showed that nanocapsule levels significantly (p<0.05) affected on weight gain, feed consumption, total cholesterol of meat and liver. It showed no significant (p>0.05) effects on feed conversion, water consumption and total cholesterol of serum. Accordingly, 2% liquid turmeric extract nanocapsule, equal to 1.73 mg/100 ml curcumin, was a compatible feed additive for drinking water of broiler chicken to improve the feed efficiency and total cholesterol of meat and liver without negatively affecting performance.
