Enrichment of Organic-Inorganic Se and Vitamin E in Quail Products and Their Effects on Performances and Antioxidant Source in Quail Eggs
The goal of this study was to find the best combination of organic selenium, inorganic selenium, and vitamin E for optimal quail production and reproduction, as well as the highest antioxidant level in quail eggs. Seven hundred twenty quails (360 females and 360 males) were used in this study at the age of six weeks. There were nine different treatment diets to choose from: T1 (commercial diet/control), T2 (diet containing 0.46 ppm inorganic Se + 43.50 ppm vitamin E), T3 (diet containing 0.92 ppm inorganic Se + 43.50 ppm vitamin E), T4 (diet containing 0.92 ppm inorganic Se +87.00 ppm vitamin E), T5 (diet containing T6 (diet containing 0.46 ppm organic Se + 43.50 ppm vitamin E), T7 (diet containing 0.92 ppm organic Se + 43.50 ppm vitamin E), and T8 (diet containing 0.92 ppm organic Se 0.92 +87.00 ppm vitamin E). A factorial nested design was used to set up the experiment. Duncan’s test was used to see if there were any significant differences between the treatments. This study found that 0.92 ppm organic selenium + 43.50 ppm vitamin E (T7) provided the highest selenium content in meat, egg albumin, and egg yolk, as well as hatchability. The antioxidants represented by vitamin E and glutathione peroxidase enzyme were significantly higher in quail eggs. were significantly higher in quail fed the other treatment diets.
