Abstract: ABSTRACT. The effect of wheat-based diet (WBD), supplemented with xylanase and surplus vitamin A, on performance, nutrient digestibility, intestinal morphology and digesta viscosity of broiler chickens was investigated. Based on a completely randomized design, 240-day-old chickens were randomly divided into six experimental diets and four replications with 10 chickens each. Experimental diets consisted of corn-based diet (CBD) (T1), WBD with routine amounts of vitamin A (9000 IU kg xylanase (T6). For Feed Conv… Show more

“…Relative length (cm/100 g BW) the current study also indicated that xylanase supplementation improved ileal digestibility of CP and Ca, and AME of feed. Positive effects of xylanase on nutrient digestibility have been reported by other authors (Esmaeilipour et al 2011;Khoramabadi et al 2014). The NSPs in the cell walls of cereals encapsulate starch and protein and also increase the viscosity of digesta (Abdollahi et al 2011).…”

“…Low levels of vitamin A (1,000 IU kg −1 ) showed the best results, differing from the results found in this study for broilers at 21 d of age. Khoramabadi et al. (2014) , evaluating wheat-based diets with different vitamin A supplementation with or without xylanase inclusion, found no effect of treatment on the FI of birds at 21 d of age.…”

“…Therefore, the need for alternative protein sources for livestock is becoming increasingly urgent [ 2 ]. Finding alternative sources of poultry feedstuffs is a recent research topic that is still under investigation by nutrition researchers in an attempt to find a balance between high performance and low cost [ 3 ]. Makkar et al [ 4 ] mentioned that insects are good candidates to face the global challenge of finding new protein sources at a low cost, especially when taking into account their nutritional value and low breeding space requirements.…”
