Storage of high moisture feed is one of the major problems for production of aflatoxins. Storage of feed for a month with 13% moisture was not safe to prevent aflatoxin (AF) production. However, the production of AF at 13% moisture level can be completely inhibited by adding fumaric acid @ 0.20% or citric acid @ 0.45%. At 15 and 17% moisture level in feed, more than 0.50% of fumaric acid or citric ...

Md. Abdullah Ansari, Propionic acid and fumaric acid have almost equal efficacy in preventing biosynthesis of aflatoxins in feed. However, small variations may occur due to method followed in estimation. Overall if we see, propionic acid is little bit more efficacious in preventing biosynthesis of aflatoxins in feed.

Addition of methionine 0.1% above the NRC recommendation in starting (total 0.6% Met) and finishing diet (total 0.48% Met) in the AF contaminated diet improved the production performance, relative weight of liver, spleen and bursa, blood biochemical and haematological parameters and immune response during 0-6 weeks age of broiler chickens experimentally induced with aflatoxicosis (250 ppb). Supple ...

Dietary supplementation of ascorbic acid (AA) at 250 and 500 ppm; and butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) at 1000 and 2000 ppm levels provided partial amelioration of aflatoxicosis caused by 1 ppm total aflatoxin in broiler chickens. BHA was more efficacious than AA in ameliorating the adverse effects of aflatoxicosis in broiler chickens.

In the process of understanding impact of aflatoxicosis, it revealed that a dietary concentration of 300 ppb aflatoxin B1 impaired the performance in terms of body weight gain, feed intake, and utilization efficiency of feed, energy and protein, and also suppressed both cell mediated and humoral immunity in broiler chickens during 0-6 weeks of age. Aflatoxicosis resulted in atrophy of bursa of Fa ...

Thank you Dear Dr. Fernando Tamames III for you contribution to mycotoxin research for 30 years. I would like to state that I have also formulated two mycotoxin binders namely Mycodetox B1 and Mycodetox B2. Both the binders were tested in chickens, quails and turkeys and it was found that both binders alleviated/ameliorated the adverse effects of aflatoxicosis in tested species.

Efficacy of fumaric and citric acids in preventing biosynthesis of aflatoxins in poultry feed with variable moisture content is an original research work carried out in my laboratory for safe storage of animal feed.

Background Seven species of the genus Eimeria (Apicomplexa, Coccidia) cause chicken coccidiosis, a disease with a huge economic impact in the poultry industry. Disease pathology is characterised by diarrhoea, malabsorption and for some species haemorrhage, and has a severe impact on animal welfare, efficiency of feed conversion and weight gain. Eimeria parasites disseminate readily through flocks ...
