This study was carried out to evaluate the effects of supplementing diets with garlic powder and alpha-tocopherol on performance, serum cholesterol levels, and meat quality of chickens. Three hundred 1-d-old male broiler chicks were assigned to 5 diet treatments (0, 1, 3, and 5% garlic powder and 3% garlic powder + 200 IU of alpha-tocopherol/kg) with 3 replications of 20 birds for 35 d. There were no significant differences in broiler performance among the treatments. Moisture and crude ash…

Effects of dietary supplementation of red ginseng marc and α-tocopherol on the growth performance and meat quality of broiler chicken.

BACKGROUND This study aimed to determine the effect of supplementation of broiler diets with red ginseng marc and α-tocopherol on the growth performance and meat quality during a 35-day feeding

Effect of garlic powder (Allium sativum) on growth, dressing parameters, serum biochemical contents and profitability of broiler

It can be concluded that the addition of garlic powder to broiler diet had positive effect on cholesterol and glucose levels and had no effect on feed intake, body weight gain, meat yield, bone development, carcass parameters.

Effect of Dietary Supplementation of Garlic (Allium sativum) and Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) Seed Powder on Growth Performance, Carcass Characteristics and Economics of Feeding in Broilers

It is revealed that supplementation of garlic bulb alone or in combination with fenugreek seed improves the growth performance and feed utilization efficiency and return over feed cost and profit per bird.

Effect of Garlic and Neem Leaf Powder Supplementation on Cholesterol Levels in Serum, Breast and Thigh Muscles in Broilers

Results showed that supplementation of garlic powder and neem leaf powder alone and their combination significantly reduced the serum, breast and thigh meat cholesterol levels in broilers.

Effect of adding different levels of garlic powder to diets on broiler performance

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of garlic on broiler performance. Ninety six, one day-old commercial broiler chicks (Ross 308) were randomly allocated to 4 treatments with 4

Effects of Different Levels of Garlic Straw Powder on Growth Performance, Meat Quality, Antioxidant and Intestinal Mucosal Morphology of Yellow-Feathered Broilers

The full utilization of garlic straw can partially alleviate shortage of feedstuff and waste of resources. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of garlic straw as an

Effect of dietary mugwort ( Artemisia vulgaris L.) and pine needle powder ( Pinus densiflora ) on growth performance, serum cholesterol levels, and meat quality in broilers

Overall, the present study indicates the beneficial effect of using 1 or 2% mugwort and pine needle powder in reducing serum cholesterol and improving meat quality.

Effects of different formulations of α-tocopherol acetate (vitamin E) on growth performance, meat quality and antioxidant capacity in broiler chickens

MVE supplementation may improve growth performance, hepatic mitochondrial antioxidant capacity and free radical scavenging capacity in chickens, and dietary supplementation of MVE gave better broiler growth performance than VE.


The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of dietary supplementation with garlic extract 1g/kg and synthesized calcium nanoparticles with garlic extract (0.5 and 1 g/kg) on growth

Effect of Garlic and Chromium Picolinate Supplementation on Production Performance, Carcass Characteristics and Immunological Parameters of Guinea Fowls

It can be concluded that both chromium and garlic supplementation can improve growth performance and immunity and thus can be used as growth promoters in poultry.



Effect of dietary garlic bulb and husk on the physicochemical properties of chicken meat.

The data suggest that supplementing broiler chicken diets with garlic can produce chicken meat with favorable lipid profiles and can enhance eating quality because sensory panels found that thigh meat from chickens fed a garlic-supplemented diet had better texture and flavor.

Effects of Dietary Garlic Powder and Copper on Cholesterol Content and Quality Characteristics of Chicken Eggs

Based on the results of this experiment, the decrease of Haugh unit during storage was alleviated by feeding of GP, which altered the cholesterol fractions in serum and reduced the content of egg yolk cholesterol in laying hens.

The Effects of Dietary Garlic Powder on the Performance, Egg Traits and Blood Serum Cholesterol of Laying Quails

It is demonstrated that garlic powder addition had a significant cholesterol-reducing effect in serum and egg yolk without adverse effects on performance and egg traits of laying quails.

Influence of Dietary α-Tocopheryl Acetate Supplementation on Cholesterol Oxidation in Retail Packed Chicken Meat during Refrigerated Storage

This study examined the effect of dietary α-tocopheryl acetate on lipid and cholesterol oxidation in retail packed chicken meat during refrigerated storage. Male broiler chicks were randomly assigned

Effects of dietary vitamin E and fat supplementation on pork quality.

Results indicate that dietary VE acetate supplementation increased lipid stability and the VE concentration of muscle, as indicated by thiobarbituric acid reactive substance (TBARS) values.

Effects of dietary garlic on cholesterol metabolism in laying hens.

It was concluded that garlic paste in the diets of laying hens reduced serum and yolk cholesterol concentrations and dietary garlic paste had no adverse effects on layer performance.

Modulation of cholesterol levels in broiler meat by dietary garlic and copper.

The results of these trials confirm the findings that garlic and copper alter lipid and cholesterol metabolism, however, they do not work by the same mechanism.
