Abstract:

A study was conducted to assess the viability of spray dried probiotics in crumble feed during storage. The Bacillus subtilis (T1), Bacillus amyloliquefaciens (T2), Bacillus coagulans (T3), Bacillus clausii (T4), Lactobacillus acidophilus (T5) and Bifidobacterium bifidum (T6) cultures were propagated using skim milk and spray dried by using spray drier. The spray dried probiotic powder was diluted with water and sprayed on broiler crumble feed. After spraying, crumble feed was stored in room temperature (25-33°C) for 0,7 and 14 days and the viability of probiotics was assessed before and after spray drying and during storage with crumble feed. B. clausii showed better yield after spray drying while B. subtilis showed highest survival rate (83%) among all probiotics studied. At the end of 14 days of storage, the survival rate was maximum in B. amyloliquefaciens among spore forming probiotics (95.61%) and among non-spore forming probiotics the B. bifidum (85.24%) evinced better survival.
