This study was conducted to evaluate productive performance and carcass quality traits of broiler chickens fed diets supplemented with an exogenous emulsifier based on lysophospholipids and Phospholipids. Two hundred and forty, newly hatched male chicks of a commercial strain (ARBOR ACRES PLUS) were randomly divided into four treatment groups.  Each treatment group had6 replicateswith10 birds in each group. Birds were reared in separate pens as an experimental unit. Two basal diets were formulated; one with full energy diet which served as positive control (PC) and another was 80 Kcal/ kg less as compare to PC at each phase of diet which served as negative control (NC). Each of the diet was supplemented with 250 gm /ton of Lysophospholipids & Phospholipids blend emulsifier (JubiDOL plus) and fed to birds from 0 to 35 days of age. At the end of the trial (35 d), birds that received the Lysophospholipids & Phospholipids blend emulsifier had a statistically significant (p<0.05)  higher body weight, lower feed conversion rate and better EEF as compared to the negative control. While mortality and feed intake was similar amongst control and treatment the groups. There was no statistically significant effect of the emulsifier on carcass traits and incidence of foot pad dermatitis.This study concluded that the use of an emulsifier based on Lysophospholipids & Phospholipids blend improved the performance and feed efficiency while there were limited effects on carcass quality traits of broilers.
