MetadataShow full item record
As a complete nutrient product, the egg of Alabio duck contains high cholesterol, therefore it needs some attention. This research was conducted to reduce this cholesterol level and at the same time to improve its deposit of omega -3 and omega- 6 in the egg, by providing fiber ration containing fish oil, corn oil, and zinc (Zn). The experimental design being used was factorial of 2x5x2 with 100 ducks. The first factor was fiber (F) and the second one was oil and Zn (O). Results showed that the treatments were effective enough in reducing cholesterol and improving the omega -3 and omega- 6 of the egg. The best product was shown by treatment of F1O4 containing 6 % fiber (F1) with 2% fish oil + 4% corn oil + Zinc (O4), either in single or interaction, in decreasing cholesterol and LDL cholesterol at the same time improving HDL cholesterol in plasma, omega -3 (linolenate), and omega -6 (omega -6 ( linoleate) of the Alabio duct egg.
