Enriching Egg Yolk with Carotenoids & Phenols

  title={Enriching Egg Yolk with Carotenoids \& Phenols},
  author={Amar Benakmoum and Rosa Larid and Sofiane Zidani},
— Dried tomato peel (DTP) was tested in vivo (n=10) in 42 week-old laying hens at rates of 0, 40, 70, 100 and 130g/kg DM feed. Laying hens were fed in group 120 g DM/day/animal for 26 days. After 21 days, feed intake was not affected after DTP incorporation (97% of the offered feed in the five groups). Laying rate was not significantly different after DTP incorporation at 4 and 10% from the control group. Egg yolk resulting from DTP-enriched diets, contained lower amounts of cholesterol (14 to…

Flaxseed and dried tomato waste used together in laying hens diet

Investigation of the effects of simultaneous supplementation of laying hens with dietary sources of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and carotenoids on egg quality, fatty acids andCarotenoid profile of the egg yolk and on feed and yolk lipid peroxidation found increased doses of dietary DTW enhanced yolk Roche colour score in direct correlation with the enrichment of egg yolks in carotens but decreased their transfer efficiency from feed to egg.

Study of the Effects of Dietary Supplementation of Linseeds, Fenugreek Seeds and Tomato-Pepper Mix on Laying Hens Performances, Egg Yolk Lipids and Antioxidants Profiles and Lipid Oxidation Status

There was a significant enrichment of eggs with carotenoids and an enhancement of their antioxidant status in response to linseed supplementation and there was no beneficial effect of further supplementation with sweet red pepper and dried tomato or fenugreek seed.

Egg Yolk Antioxidants Profiles: Effect of Diet Supplementation with Linseeds and Tomato-Red Pepper Mixture before and after Storage

This study evaluated the effect of dietary incorporation of linseed alone or along with dried tomato paste-pepper powder mix on egg physical characteristics, antioxidant profiles, lipid oxidative


It can be concluded that, herbal plants can be employed as natural antioxidants due to its high contents of phenols and antioxidants in laying hens diets via increasing its content of carotenoids and antioxidants.


The objectives of this study was to evaluate the effects of adding differents level of Moringa oleifera leaves flour (MLF) in diet carcass characteristcis of broiler. A total of 240 day-old-chick

Effect of Moringa oleifera (Lam.) pods as feed additive on egg antioxidants, chemical composition and performance of commercial layers

The outcomes of this study showed that MPM supplementation affects EM, serum biochemistry and bioactive compounds of the egg yolk positively.

Novel Functions of Microalgal Phytochemicals in Feeding Broiler Chicks and Laying Hens

This laboratory has conducted a series of experiments to determine the nutritional, health, and environmental values of defatted microalgae in replacing corn and soybean meal in diets for broiler chicks and laying hens and in enriching their meat and eggs with omega-3 fatty acids.

The Effects of Dietary Inclusion of Bilberry and Walnut Leaves in Laying Hens’ Diets on the Antioxidant Properties of Eggs

A significant correlation was observed between primary oxidation products and total polyphenol content of the egg yolks, where zinc, lutein and zeaxanthin are the bioactive compounds that inhibit the formation of secondary oxidation products.

Effects of fennel seed supplementation of ration on performance, egg quality, serum cholesterol, and total phenol content of egg yolk of laying quails

The objective of this research was to evaluate the effects of fennel seed supplementation of ration on performance, egg quality, and serum cholesterol of laying quails during an eight-week period.


This study was aimed to increasing egg production by supplementing medicinal plants Salvia officinalis L and Lavandula angustifolia L powders as antistressors in hen layer diet under high stocking



Influence of dried tomato pomace as an alternative to wheat bran in maize or wheat based diets, on the performance of laying hens and traits of produced eggs

Maize decreased body weight of the birds and increased HU, ShW/EW ratio, ShT, and YCS of the eggs when compared with wheat diets, and 100 g/kg of DTP produced comparable egg quality and laying performance and it contributed to a deeper yolk colour.

Effects of carotenoids from lucerne, marigold and tomato on egg yolk pigmentation and carotenoid composition

There was an increase in the yolk concentrations of lutein, zeaxanthin, lycopene and β-carotene in eggs produced by female quail fed diets supplemented with natural carotenoids, compared with the control group.

Effect of adding extracted hesperetin, naringenin and pectin on egg cholesterol, serum traits and antioxidant activity in laying hens

The results of this study indicated that intake of hesperetin, naringenin and pectin extracted from citrus and grapefruit peel in laying hens diet, may exhibit positive effects.

Reducing shell egg cholesterol content. I. Overview, genetic approaches, and nutritional strategies

A justification for low-cholesterol egg production is provided, primarily in the context of the heterogeneity of response to dietary cholesterol in humans, and cholesterol metabolism in the laying hen, avian embryonic cholesterol needs, and genetic and nutritional approaches to chicken egg cholesterol reduction are reviewed.

Antioxidant, cholesterol reducing, immunomodulating and other health promoting properties of herbal enriched designer eggs.

The immune status of the hens as well as the Immunoglobulin levels in the eggs were increased due to all treatments, especially by Fenugreek and Basil leaves, and consumption of SDE and HEDE produced healthy changes in the serum lipid profile in human volunteers.

Analyses of tomato peel and seed byproducts and their use as a source of carotenoids

Commercial tomato canning yields two different byproducts. One is the material that results from peeling tomatoes, while the other results from removing the seeds. The peel byproduct contained 100.8

Consumption of one egg per day increases serum lutein and zeaxanthin concentrations in older adults without altering serum lipid and lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations.

It is indicated that in older adults, 5 wk of consuming 1 egg/d significantly increases serum lutein and zeaxanthin concentrations without elevating serum lipids and lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations.
