Abstract

The influence of Moringa oleifera MO leaf extract as a dietary supplement on the growth performance and antioxidant parameters was evaluated on broiler meat and the compounds responsible for the corresponding antioxidant activity were identified. 0.5%, 1.0%, and 1.5% w-v of MO leaf aqueous extracts MOLE were prepared, and nutritional feed supplemented with 0%, 0.5%, 1.0%, and 1.5% w-w of MO leaf meal MOLM extracts were also prepared and analysed for their in vitro antioxidant potential. Furthermore, the treated broiler groups control T1 and treatment T2, T3, and T4 were evaluated for performance, meat quality, and antioxidant status. The results of this study revealed that, among the broilers fed MOLM, the broilers fed 0.5% w-w MOLM T2 exhibited enhanced meat quality and antioxidant status . However, the antioxidant activity of the MOLE is greater than that of the MOLM. The LC-MS-MS analysis of MOLM showed high expression of isoflavones and fatty acids from soy and corn source, which antagonistically inhibit the expression of the flavonoids-phenols in the MO leaves thereby masking its antioxidant effects. Thus, altering the soy and corn gradients in conventional nutrition feed with 0.5% w-w MO leaves supplement would provide an efficient and cost-effective feed supplement.
