The basic principles of elemental metabolomics were applied to investigate whether alteration of egg metallome could be achieved after two flavonoids addition, namely hesperidin and naringin in diets of laying hens. A total of 72 hens were divided into six groups: Control (C) (basal diet), E1 (750 mg hesperidin/kg diet), E2 (1500 mg hesperidin/kg diet), N1 (750 mg naringin/kg diet), N2 (1500 mg naringin/kg diet), and VE (200 mg vitamin E/kg diet). The same diet was provided to birds of all…

Quercetin and Egg Metallome

The presence of quercetin led to differentiation of the deposition of certain trace minerals in egg compartments compared to that of hens fed a basal diet, possibly indicating that tailor made eggs for specific nutritional and health requirements could be created in the future.

Influence of citrus flavonoids on laying hen performance, inflammatory immune response, egg quality and yolk oxidative stability

Naringin and hesperidin may favourably prolong the shelf life of eggs, appear to possess anti-inflammatory properties and could improve the yolk colour without any side effects on the performance or egg quality traits.

Influence of organic selenium supplementation on the accumulation of toxic and essential trace elements involved in the antioxidant system of chicken

Investigation of the interactions between selenium (Se) and various trace elements, both toxic and essential, involved in the antioxidant system found Supplementation with Se-yeast not only increased Se concentration but also reduced Cd concentration in the tissues.

Effects of Dietary Form of Selenium on Its Distribution in Eggs

The presented results demonstrate the different pattern of Se distribution in egg mass when laying hens are fed diets supplemented with inorganic or organic selenium sources.

Selenium enrichment of table eggs.

The results of this study indicate that feeding up to 5.1 µg/g of Se will not affect egg production and the welfare of the laying hen and is a practical way of producing Se-enriched eggs for the consumers.

Reducing Effect of Ingesting Tannic Acid on the Absorption of Iron, but Not of Zinc, Copper and Manganese by Rats

The findings suggest that the usual intake of polyphenols is relatively safe, but that a high intake by supplementation or by dietary habit of tannin affects only the Fe level.

Effect of dietary iodine on production of iodine enriched eggs

It was concluded that supplementing iodine at 6.50 ppm in layers diet was economically better for the production of iodine enriched eggs followed by feed iodine supplementation at 3.25 ppm as compared to control and other treatment groups.

Hesperidin, a citrus flavonoid, increases the bioavailability of micronutrients of Gallus domesticus (chicken) eggshell: in vitro study

Abstract The consumption of citrus flavonoid, hesperidin may inhibit the bone loss. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of hesperidin on the bioavailability of Ca, a probable reason

Effect of hesperidin dietary supplementation on hen performance, egg quality and yolk oxidative stability

Antioxidant properties of hesperidin seem to make it a promising natural agent for improving the shelf life of eggs and significantly improved oxidative stability of both fresh and stored eggs.

Short-term ingestion of chlorogenic or caffeic acids decreases zinc but not copper absorption in rats, utilization of stable isotopes and inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry technique

Zn absorption was significantly less in rats fed on chlorogenic acid or caffeic acid than in the control group, and the effects of different foods rich in these compounds on mineral absorption in man are illustrated.

Effects of Long-Term Use of Flavonoids on the Absorption and Tissue Distribution of Orally Administered Doses of Trace Elements in Rats

Long-term use of supraphysiological doses of flavonoids increase absorption of Zn, Cu and Fe and their tissue availability in brain, kidney and liver; this effect seems to be different with variations in structural features.
