The experiment was with 117 broiler chickens divided into five groups: control (soyabean oilmeal as protein feed) and four experimental fed on varied rations of triticale, rapeseed oilmeal and ground rape seed. The chickens were slaughtered at the age of 8 weeks. The carcasses were processed and stored for six months at -18°C. Sensory examination was carried out on boiled breast and leg muscles. Diets containing 50% triticale and up to 18% rapeseed oilmeal or 12% of rape seeds did not negatively affect either palatability or flavour of breast meat and boullions. The flavour of leg muscles was affected negatively when chickens were fed on a 50% triticale and 12% rape seeds diet.
