(2014) found the supplementation of re-esterified palm oils by fatty acid positional distribution within acylglycerol molecules resulted in a lower gross-energy content and an increased solid-fat index at the chicken's body temperature, but re-esterified palm oils did not alter the fat absorption, postprandial lipemia, or growth performance of broiler chicken, compared to native palm oil, so they were regarded to be used as alternative broiler fat sources in chick diets.
