Hinaichidori chicken “Midori” raised on a diet of Euglena

The world’s first Hinaichidori chicken raised with microalgae Euglena and Chlorella powder as feed.

 

We have been conducting research on the use of Euglena and Chlorella, which are rich in protein and other nutrients, not only as food ingredients but also as feed. In this research, we conducted a feeding test using Euglena and Chlorella powders for Hinai Jidori chickens with the aim of extracting more of the yellowish fat and arachidonic acid, which are considered to be the characteristics of Hinai Jidori chickens, as well as the abundant arachidonic acid contained in them. The results showed that the Hinaichidori chickens fed with Euglena and Chlorella powders had a stronger yellow taste in their fat and an increase in arachidonic acid content, which tended to affect the improvement of umami.

We will continue to verify the effects of using the microalgae Euglena as feed and aim to improve its value as feed.
