The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of cocarboxylase on productive performance, blood glucose and lipid profile in broilers. A total of 11004 one-day-old male broiler chickens were randomly allocated into 1 of 3 treatments with 4 replicates per treatment (917 chickens per replicate) and conventionally reared until 42 days old. The treatments were T1 (Conventional diet), T2 (Modified diet, reducing a percentage soybean oil and the addition of cocarboxylase) and T3 (Modified diet, reducing a percentage soybean oil without cocarboxylase). Broilers supplemented with cocarboxylase (T2) resulted in higher final weight and weight gain compared with the others treatments. The inclusion of cocarboxylase had positive influence on weight, which suggests its usefulness as a partial replacement of the oil used in chicken diets.
