The influence of phytase added in diet for fattening chickens on the meat quality, was examined during the feed experiment. The experimental examinations were done on the chickens of Arbor Acres strain. There were 440 chickens in the experiment, divided into the 4 experimental groups considering the levels of mineral sources of phosphorus and phytase added into the diet. Control group K (110 chickens) dicalcium phosphate 2%, O-I group (110 chickens) monocalcium phosphate 1,4%; O-II group (110

The chemical analyzes of white and red meat of experimental chickens that the meat of the chickens that gained phytase by diet with lower level of mineral source of phosphorus have more proteins and less fat phytase by diet (P<0,05).
