Tissue tocopherol status, meat lipid stability, and serum lipids in broiler chickens fed Artemisia annua
Growing consumer concern about the use of synthetic feed additives, there is elevated interest in using phytogenic compounds in poultry feeds. The effect of Artemisia annua ( A. annua ) in broiler diets on tissue tocopherols, lipid peroxidation products, serum triglycerides, and non‐esterified fatty acids were determined. It is hypothesized that dietary A. annua will enhance tocopherols and will reduce lipid peroxidation products in chicken meat. Broiler chicks ( n = 52) were fed corn‐soy diets containing 0 (Control) or 2% dried A. annua leaves (ART). Dietary ART led to increase in γ‐, α‐, and total tocopherols in muscle and liver (P 0.05). No difference was observed in body weight, relative weight of liver, heart, spleen, and bursa. A. annua may prove useful as a natural phytogenic feed additive with antioxidant potential that could be incorporated into poultry diets and such meat could serve as an alternate route for providing vitamin E in human diets. Practical applications: Consumers are interested in buying meat from chickens fed plant‐based phytogenic products. A. annua is rich sources of natural antioxidants. Feeding A. annua led to tocopherol enrichment while enhancing the lipid stability in poultry meat. A. annua may be used a functional feed additive in poultry rations. Artemisia annua could be useful as a natural phytogenic feed additive with antioxidant potential that could be incorporated into poultry diets and such meat could serve as an alternate route for providing vitamin E in human diets.
