  author={Tanasorn Tunsaringkarn and Wanna Tungjaroenchai and Wattasit Siriwong},
Key MethodCross-sectional study of quail eggs was conducted to evaluate the nutritional compositions of carbohydrate, fat, protein, calories, vitamin, minerals and sex hormones. The results showed that average of each whole quail egg weight was 10.67 g. Their contents of ash, carbohydrate, fat, protein and moisture were 1.06, 4.01, 9.89, 12.7 and 72.25 g 100g -1 , respectively. Total energy in calories obtained was 156.50 kcal 100g -1 whole egg. The most essential amino acid found in egg whites, was…

The results revealed that the biological value of the quail egg protein was higher than that of the chicken egg protein, and confirmed the vital and economic importance of quail eggs, and suggested that it is necessary to more studies to identify the health impact of quails consumption.

Effects of quail (Coturnix japonica) egg diet on both the blood sugar and the lipid profile of alloxan induced diabetic albino rats

It could be concluded that intake of quail egg diets either alone or as part of a therapeutic regime, could have beneficial effect in the prevention and management of diabetes mellitus.

Proximate and mineral composition of Japanese quail egg and its possible role in bone healing

Quail eggs are known to be highly nutritious. In the first study, the nutritional and mineral composition of quail eggs was evaluated by determining the proportion of moisture, total ash, lipids,

Nutritional compositions of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) breed lines raised on a basal poultry ration under farm conditions in Ruwa, Zimbabwe

It is concluded that Japanese quail eggs contain favourable proportions of essential nutrients, particularly proteins for the human diet, and their consumption can contribute positively towards improved nutrition and food security in the country.

Characteristics of egg parts, chemical composition and nutritive value of Japanese quail eggs--a review.

The aim of this review was to shed light on characteristics of egg parts, chemical composition and nutritive value of quail eggs.

The Effect of Supplementation of Avocado Seed Flour (Persea americana Mill.) in Feed on Blood Lipids Profile and Egg Yolk Cholesterol of Japanese Quail (Corturnix-corturnix japonica)

It is concluded that avocado seed flour (ASF) supplementation up to 9% is safe for quail feed supplementation and significantly reduced blood cholesterol levels and the egg yolk cholesterol.

Effect of Turmeric Powder Supplementation to The Age of Sexual Maturity, Physical, and Chemical Quality of The First Japanese Quail’s (Coturnix japonica) Egg

It can be concluded that supplementation of turmeric powder improve the chemical quality of Japanese quail eggs (Coturnix japonica), so it is good for the development of quail embryos as well as for consumption.

The Use of Different Fat Sources on Performance, Egg Quality and Egg Yolk Fatty Acids Content in Laying Quails

In this study, the performance, egg quality, egg yolk colour and fatty acids profile of quails fed on diets containing different fat sources were determined. During 8 weeks trial, a total of 75,

Effect of age of Japanese quail on physical and biochemical characteristics of eggs

From the consumers’ point of view, eggs from older birds appeared to be the most valuable, at the same time, as the quail ages, the antibacterial properties of eggs deteriorate, which may indicate a shorter shelf life.

Effects of Dietary Protein Level on Egg Production and Hatchability in Japanese Quail( Coturnix japonica ) in Khartoum State, Sudan

Results indicate that feed consumption was not affected by protein level, except for the six week where treatment A was significantly highest compared to other treatments, and dietary protein level 22% was considered to be the best level under Sudan condition.

This supplement of the Journal of the American College of Nutrition presents compelling scientific evidence about eggs’ functional food attributes, reaffirms that eggs have a minimal effect on blood cholesterol levels and presents new research on the contribution of eggs to the American diet.

Functional amino acids in growth, reproduction, and health.

Both NEAA and EAA should be considered in the classic "ideal protein" concept or formulation of balanced diets to maximize protein accretion and optimize health in animals and humans.

The importance of mineral elements for humans, domestic animals and plants: A review

The biochemical functions and the importance of the mineral elements in health and disease conditions of humans, animals and plants are reviewed as this will assist in the prevention of nutrition-related diseases and maintenance of good health for humans and animals that depend on plants for food.

Pure linoleate deficiency in the rat: influence on growth, accumulation of n-6 polyunsaturates, and [1-14C]linoleate oxidation.

It is concluded that pure linoleate deficiency has marked effects on accumulation of n-6 polyunsaturates but induces milder gross symptoms, particularly growth retardation, than classical essential fatty acid deficiency.

Health benefits of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)

The association of DHA deficiency with depression is the reason for the robust positive correlation between depression and myocardial infarction, and patients with cardiovascular disease or Type II diabetes are often advised to adopt a low-fat diet with a high proportion of carbohydrate.

    Current opinion in clinical nutrition and metabolic care
  • 2012
The recent in-vivo human studies show that leucine ingestion can augment the blunted muscle protein synthetic response to protein or amino acid ingestion in elderly men, and the recent long-term nutritional intervention studies do not confirm the clinical efficacy ofLeucine as a pharmaconutrient.

Growth and development in term infants fed long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids: a double-masked, randomized, parallel, prospective, multivariate study.

These findings do not support adding AA+DHA to formulas containing 10% energy as linoleic acid and 1%energy as alpha-linolenic acid to enhance growth, visual acuity, information processing, general development, language, or temperament in healthy, term infants during the first 14 months after birth.

Effects of maternal docosahexaenoic acid intake on visual function and neurodevelopment in breastfed term infants.

DHA supplementation of breastfeeding mothers results in higher infant plasma phospholipid DHA contents during supplementation and a higher Bayley Psychomotor Development Index at 30 mo of age but results in no other advantages either at or before this age.
