The main goal is to minimize / avoid mycotoxin effects to consumers, thus we should target/point forward to methods which can achieve this goal. Either prevention from the source or deactivation after contamination. This will involve intense research on, say, deactivators under different environmental conditions to ascertain the effectiveness. This means it should be tested both in vitro and in vi ...

Dear Vin, An experiment was conducted with variable moisture content in feed. The results showed that at 11% moisture level in feed, aflatoxin biosynthesis did not occur in any of the treatments. However, with the increase in moisture content in feed from 11 to 17%, there was increase in production of the aflatoxins. Complete inhibition of aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 and G2) synthesis at 13% moisture l ...

Infection of grains by mycotoxigenic fungi starts in the field: before and after harvesting. The best stage of prevention is at this level (field). Ways should be invented to effectively minimize or totally control the contamination here. Fumaric acid seem to work during storage while binders are useful after contamination. Therefore, can combination of the two work in the field before storage?

Great! How effective are the AFT binders and are they used in all types of feeds? Thanks

Thanks for your concerns in mycotoxins. What is the status of mycotoxins in sillage and which mycotoxin is common? How are your products used and how effective are they?

Maize is the most popular among the cereals both as food and feed, especially in developing nations. So if the binders work up to 98 percent efficacy then, in case of aflatoxin, it is a great step forward towards minimizing effects of mycotoxins in men and animals. Are these binders effective to this level in other mycotoxins in the food and feed chain?

Aoun KhanYes, I meant a simple method to be used in the diagnosis of mycotoxins in feeds (finished & unfinished) and poultry products.

The best way is to achieve an efficient, effective and cheaper way of mycotoxin diagnosis like litmus paper testing of alkalinity and acidity. Is there a method that works like this? Thanks

Yes, it is important to amalgamate science knowledge with business so that the knowledge can reach the target group (community) in the best way they could understand and thus adopt it. I would like to know the results of the research, especially the level of virus shed by infected birds after the use of TLR ligands. For sure, this can be very helpful to the poultry industry.

I also agree with most of the comments concerning mycotoxins in poultry production. Preventive measures should be a foremost step especially in commonly used feed ingredients known to be major sources of contamination. Farmers should be educated on matters concerning mycotoxin contamination at farm level; introduce hands-on analysis methods close to the farming communities so as to encourage farme ...
