Abstract:

A study was conducted to know the ratio of giblets on live weight and carcass weight basis of various indigenous chicken breeds. The nutritional value of giblets was also assessed to use a source of nutrition in value added products. Birds of six weeks each of Cobb-400, Vanraja, Aseel, Kadaknath breed reared under deep litter system were sacrificed using halal slaughter procedure. Giblets were collected and processed as per standard procedure. Each and every measurement was taken using digital measurement twice for every reading. Proximate analysis was performed using ISO procedures. Significant (P<0.05) differences were observed in giblets yield both on hot and cold weight basis in respect to live weight. Organs of giblets individually showed significant (P<0.5) differences among various breeds/strain. The nutritional parameters like moisture, fat, protein and ash in general showed significant (P<0.05) differences among the breeds with few exceptions. Heart was highest in total fat, and lowest in protein content. Liver was highest in protein and total ash content while gizzard was highest in moisture and lowest in total fat. Some experiments on amino acid profile and fatty acid profile is also required for further know how about the actual nutritional status of chicken giblets. Giblets are the integral parts of chicken carcass but its nutritional value and proportion in different chicken breeds is still not fully understood. So the present study may open the avenue of its uses in value addition and other variety products.
