Abstract:

In the present experiment, effect of encapsulated and non-encapsulated synbiotic (prebiotic and probiotic) on the feed intake, body weight gain, and feed conversion ratio and serum lipid profile is studied. The probiotic bacteria used in the study is Bifidobacterium bifidum 235. Commercially available prebiotic FOS (3%) was used for co-encapsulation and 2% alginate was used as a coating material by extrusion method. The feed intake, body weight gain and FCR were recorded weekly. The body weight gain, feed intake and FCR were better in rats which were fed with encapsulated synbiotic and probiotic compared to control rats. The rats feed with encapsulated Bifidobacterium bifidum 235 have shown increased body weight gain, feed intake and better FCR when compared with rats of control group. The rats fed on non-encapsulated Bifidobacterium bifidum 235 had better body weight gain, feed intake and FCR in comparison with the rats which fed on non-encapsulated Bifidobacterium bifidum 235.
