Abstract:

Enzymes are thermo-labile and they may lose activity during pelletization of feed. Encapsulation/ coating of enzyme is important for the stability of feed enzymes. Effect of feeding encapsulated amylase enzyme in corn soy pelleted diets on the performance of broilers was studied. Amylase enzyme were encapsulated with sodium alginate and included in diets at 2000 IU/kg. Two hundred day old broiler chicks were randomly distributed into four treatments, with 10 replicates of 5 birds in each replicate. Two diets – control and basal diets were formulated for starter and finisher. Basal diet (BD) was reduced by 115k.cal ME compared to control diet. Addition of uncoated and coated amylase enzyme to basal diets did not show significant (P<0.05) improvement in body weight gain and feed intake, but there was significant improvement in FCR and digestibility of energy for uncoated and coated amylase enzyme compared to control. Thus it can be concluded that addition of amylase enzyme has resulted in improved performance through better FCR, digestibility and reduced abdominal fat.
