THE EFFECT OF FEEDING ON SKIM MILK AND FORTIFIED SKIM MILK WITH PREBIOTIC ON BLOOD PARAMETERS IN RATS

Abstract

The study was undertaken in the Animal House of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Basra, to explore the effect of feeding on skim milk and skim milk enriched by many type prebiotics FOS, XOS, and RS on the blood parameters and heart weights, liver and spleen in rats. Thirty Albino rats with weights ranging from 200-170 g were randomly distributed on the biomass weight to five treatments of six replicates rats. The rats fed on a standard diet. The first treatment rats dosing 4ml distilled water; second treatment rats dosing 4ml skim milk; third treatment rats dosing 4ml skim milk with 1.5 g / kg FOS; fourth treatment rats dosing 4ml skim milk with 1.5 g / kg RS and the Fifth treatment T5 rats dosing skim milk with 1.5g/kg XOS for three months. The results of the two months showed a significant decrease in P <0.05 in LDL, VLDL triglyceride, TG, blood sugar, liver enzymes ALP, ALT, AST, and white blood cells and their ratios when comparing the addition coefficients with the control treatment, The fifth treatment with the rest of the addition coefficients. Significant P<0.05 was observed in the cell Red blood and sebaceous blood were added in comparison with the control group with a significant superiority of the fifth treatment with the other additive factors No significant differences were observed in the relative weight of the liver and spleen while the difference was significant P<0.05 for the relative weight of the heart.
