Abstract: The effects of Mucuna pruriens (MP) seeds soaked in water (WMP), acetic acid (AAMP) or calcium hydroxide (CHMP) solution + boiling on both its L-Dopa content and the productive performance of broiler chickens were evaluated. The experiment included a control without MP (C). The CHMP treatment reduced 71% of L-Dopa in comparison to AAMP (53%) or WMP (41%). In the starter phase, the AAMP group had the lowest live weight gain (p < 0.05) and the highest feed conversion ratio than C (p < 0.05). Broilers fed with CHMP and the C did not differ (p > 0.05). In the finisher phase, there was not statistical difference in any of the variables evaluated (p > 0.05). Differences were not observed in carcass yield (p > 0.05), but the broilers fed with WMP or AAMP had a heavier liver than birds on C group (p < 0.05). Results showed that 25% of CHMP can be used as ingredient in broiler diets.
