Effects of Schisandra Chinensis extract on meat quality of the lean line broilers.The experiment was conducted 

to investigate the effects of Schisandra Chinensis Extract(ESC)on the meat quality of lean line broilers.144 

one-day-old healthy lean line chickens were randomly divided into two groups with 6 replicates of 12 birds each 

replicate.


The control group fed basal diet and the experimental group fed basal diet added 0.125 % Schisandra Chinensis Extract

ESC,the experiment period was 8 weeks.The results showed that:(1)Schisandra Chinensis ExtractESC significantly 

increased the density of breast muscle fiber and decreased the thigh muscle diameter(P 0.05),the density of thigh 

muscle fiber increased and the diameter of breast muscle fiber decreased.(2)Moisture,fat and protein content of 

breast and thigh muscle were not changed(P 0.05).(3)Schisandra Chinensis ExtractESC reduced the shear force 

of breast and thigh muscle significantly(P 0.05),and their pH,a*,b* increased(P 0.05),drip loss and cooking loss

decreased(P 0.05).
