The project is focused on the formulation, testing, and developing of new types of poultry feed additives and the subsequent preparation and clinical trials of innovative functional food – chicken meat and eggs, enriched with poly-unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and antioxidants. As the source of bioactives, biotechnologically produced eustigmatophyte microalgae with nutritionally balanced composition of PUFA’s and other compounds with antioxidant effects will be used.
