Abstract:

Seventy two weaned Syrian hamsters of either sex were randomly assigned to six treatments in single cages (290mm X 220mm X 140mm) in a closed room where the temperature and relative humidity was maintained 24±50C and 60±15%, respectively during the trial of 56 days. The experiment consisted of four dietary treatments. The concentrate mixture of all the groups was formulated using wheat, fish meal, ground nut cake, mineral mixture and common salt. Additionally, treatment group T2, T4 and T6 were provided with green tea extract. Green tea extract was prepared by inserting green tea bag (1.3g) in boiling water in boiling water of volume 130 ml so that effectively it formed 1 percent w/v solution. Our Study found that growth measurements for T2, T4 and T6 were better as compared to other treatment groups. This indicates the beneficial aspect of GTE. At the same time the growth profile is better for T2 because GTE in association with rice husk acted synergistically. Body weight gain for T2 in which GTE was provided was better as compared to other groups while it is minimum for T5 (11.14g vs 2.78g, P<0.05). Our Study found that growth measurements for T2, T4 and T6 were better as compared to other treatment groups. This indicates the beneficial aspect of GTE.
