Resumen

KHAN, Sohail H. The use of green tea (Camellia sinensis) as a phytogenic substance in poultry diets. Onderstepoort j. vet. res. [online]. 2014, vol.81, n.1, pp.01-08. ISSN 2219-0635.

This review examined the use of green tea (Camellia sinensis) in the diets of poultry. Research findings were obtained from various recent studies, where much attention was focused on the role of green tea in the promotion of both animal and human health. The review involved some of the currently available information about green tea, pertaining to its chemical composition, anticoccidial and antimicrobial effect, effect on broiler and layer performance and on blood and egg yolk constituents. To the author's knowledge this is the first review paper on this topic. It will be helpful for poultry nutritionists and the poultry industry, although more detailed studies are still needed to elucidate the effects of green tea in poultry nutrition under various circumstances.
