Abstract

Spirulina platensis was included at 2.5, 5 and 7.5% of the diet as a phytobiotic either as a crude preparation or after enrichment by a biosorption process and fed to 126 Japanese quail and the eggs collected and examined for 6 weeks. Assessments were made of physical and chemical characteristics of the eggs. All treatments with added spirulina increased unsaturated fatty acids and decreased saturated fatty acids with the largest responses for linolenic (omega 3) and oleic (omega 9) acids. The changes in fatty acids were greater with enriched than crude spirulina. These results suggest that eggs from quail fed with spirulina may have positive effects on human health.
