The experiment concerning lead (Pb) in blood, meat, bone and excreta of growing duck given phytate in diet and lead (Pb) in drinking water was conducted at the Laboratory of Physiology and Biochemistry, Faculty of Animal Husbandry and the Laboratory of Chemistry Material and Environment, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science, University of Padjadjaran. In this experiment, study of lead (Pb) in blood, meat, bone and excreta of growing duck given phytate in diet and lead (Pb) in drinking water were conducted. These ducks were treated phytate and lead (Pb) since they were old day duck (DOD) and they were caged for 16 weeks. The experimental design was a completely randomized design with a factorial pattern 3x3. Three dietary treatments containing different levels of phytate (0.12; 1.16 and 2.18%) and 3 levels of lead in drinking water (0.45 and 90 ppm) with 3 replication were applied. The results showed that there was an interaction of phytate and lead on lead of blood, meat, and excreta, but no for bone. The main effect of lead treatment up to 90 ppm significantly increased lead of bone, while the main effect of phytate up to 2.18% in diet did not affect lead of bone in growing ducks.
Key words: Lead, blood, meat, bone, phytate
