Poorbaghi SL, Gheisari HR, Dadras H., Effects of inulin prebiotic on capsulated and uncapsulated Lactobacillus acidophilus probiotics in broilers Onl J Vet Res., 26 (6): 464-469, 2022. Authors describe effects of inulin prebiotic on capsulated and uncapsulated Lactobacillus acidophilus probiotics in broilers in 1 day-old Cobb-500 chicks. Groups of 20 chicks each were gavaged 109 CFU capsulated or uncapsulated Lactobacillus acidophilus probiotic on days 0 and 17 given daily as 0.1% in drinking water for 35 days. Feces taken at day 20 for bacteria counts by MRS agar culture were 5.91Í1011 with uncapsulated symbiotic and 1.5Í1011 probiotic, 9.31Í1011 with capsulated probiotic and 1.14Í1012 CFU/gm feces synbiotic (P < 0.05). Results suggest that microencapsulation of Lactobacillus acidophilus boosted gastrointestinal bacteria. Concurrent ingestion of simple probiotics with prebiotic may stimulate growth of saprophytes.
Key words: Lactobacillus acidophilus, microencapsulation, inulin, bacterial culture, broiler poultry.
