Effects of Schisandra Chinensis extract on meat quality in the fat line broiler.The study was conducted to 

investigate the effects of Schisandra Chinensis Extract(ESC)on meat quality of the fat line broilers.168 

one-day old chickens were randomly divided into two groups:the control group and experimental group with 0.125%

ESC.


Each group had 6 replicates of 14 birds.The experiment period lasted for 56 days.The results showed that:

(1)The contents of moisture and protein in thigh meat and fat in breast meat were not influenced by ESC(P 0.05),

but ESC could significantly enhance the content of fat in thigh meat(P 0.05);(2)ESC could significantly increase

density of breast muscle fiber,and significantly decrease diameter of thigh muscle fiber(P 0.05).While it had no

effects on diameter of breast muscle fiber and density of thigh muscle fiber.(3)Schisandra Chinensis Extract

ESC could reduce shear force of breast and thigh meat significantly(P 0.05).
