Martin Král , Maria Angelovičová , Ebrahim Alfaig , Maria Walczycka


The effect of probiotics and malic acid diet on meat quality was assessed. Four hundred chicks (Cobb 500) were randomly distributed to 4 dietary treatments. The basic diet was used as a control treatment (Tr1). Chicks in treatment 2 were fed a basic diet with the addition of probiotics and vinegar mixed in drinking water (Tr2). Treatment 3 (Tr3) chicks were fed a basic diet with probiotics addition. Treatment 4 (Tr4) chicks were fed a basic diet and vinegar mixed in drinking water. Probiotics (B. subtilis) was used in dosage 500 g per t of feed. Vinegar with 5% malic acid was added 10 ml per l to drinking water. The significant difference (p<0.05) was observed between groups Tr2: Tr4 for dry matter and between groups Tr1: Tr2 and Tr2: Tr3 for fat.
