Various radioprotective agents are used with the aim of protecting animal and food of animal origin from radioactive contamination. The most efficient radiocaesium binder in animals is ammonium ferric hexacyanoferrate (AFCF). Based on the results obtained so far it can be concluded that the protection efficiency of AFCF in broiler meat and liver was 88%, after a single 137Cs contamination, followed by immediate AFCF administration via gastric tube, while when mixed in the feed pellets this rate increased to 95%. In broiler chickens given clinoptilolite via gastric tube, the protection efficiency for meat and liver was 50%, while clinoptilolite mixed in the feed pellets showed the lowest protection efficiency in meat and liver of only 28%.
