Abstract

This study aims to determine the effect of feed supplemented with Bangunbangun (Plectranthus amboinicus) leaf flour (PF) on the quality of broiler chicken meat. Meat quality is determined based on observations of parameters of body weight, percentage of carcass, liver weight, and meat cholesterol. This type of research is an experimental study with a completely randomized design (CRD), consisting of five treatments and five replications. The treatments were P0 as control, P1, P2, P3, and P4 respectively given commercial feed treatment + 0% PF, commercial feed + 10% PF, commercial feed + 15% PF and commercial feed + 20% PF. from two chickens so the total number of chickens used by 50 chickens. Feed and drinking water are given ad libitum. Treatment was given for 35 days. On the 36th day all chickens were cut, for observation of body weight, percentage of carcass, liver weight, and meat cholesterol. The data obtained were tabulated and analyzed using one-way ANOVA and continued with LSD test using SPSS 21.0. The results showed that the higher giving of wake-up leaf flour reduced the weight of the liver and cholesterol levels of meat. Supplementation of 20% PF flour in feed does not affect broiler chicken body weight.
