Om Prakash Dinani, Pramod Kumar Tyagi, Praveen Kumar Tyagi, Asit Baran Mandal, Sudhir Kumar Jaiswal.


A biological experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of feeding rice gluten meal (RGM) as soybean replacement without or with different enzymes on gut health in broiler chickens. The experiment was conducted as per 3x4 factorial completely randomized design. A total of 384 broiler chicks were divided into twelve different treatments with 4 replicates for each treatment and each replicate consisted of 8 chicks. Two levels of RGM were taken (15 and 17.5%). Protease, xylanase and multienzymes supplementation under different treatments were done. The study concluded that RGM feeding and their interaction with protease, xylanase and multienzymes revealed no significant (P>0.05) difference on intestinal histomorphometry and microbiological parameter of broiler chicken. However, xylanase enzyme supplementation improved gut health in rice gluten meal based diet in terms of improvement in villus height and reduction in total viable count in jejunum.

Key words: Rice Gluten Meal, Enzyme, Broiler, Gut Health, Histomorphometry
