Gac is grown in Vietnam (gac fruit: Momordica cochinchinensis). Lycopene is abundant in gac, lycopene content in gac is 2-3 times higher than that of tomatoes. However, I do not know how one can separate lycopene from gac and refine it into a feed additive to supplement in the chicken diets.

This is an interesting piece of work with interesting results. I have two questions/suggestions, however:

2. How was lycopene added to the diets?
