For amelioration of aflatoxicosis in poultry, I conducted a decade long research based on which two mycotoxin binders namely Mycodetox B1 and Mycodetox B2 were formulated. These were included in the aflatoxin contaminated feed @ 145 and 132g per quintal, respectively and tested in Chicken, quails and turkeys. Both the binders were equally efficaceous in ameliorating aflatoxicosis. The ingredient c ...

The function of choline is to remove fat from the liver. Say, for example, during aflatoxicosis fat accumulation occurs in liver. Addition of choline to the aflatoxin contaminated feed protects the poultry from adverse effects of aflatoxicosis.

INTRODUCTION Aflatoxins belong to a group of mycotoxins produced as secondary metabolites by fungi of the Aspergillus genus, especially A. flavus, A. parasiticus and A. nomius (Kurtzman et al., 1987). No region of world escapes the problem of mycotoxins and according to Lawler and Lynch (2005) mycotoxin are estimated to affect as much as 20% of world’s crop each year. Crops grown under ...

INTRODUCTION The problems associated with mycotoxin contamination of grains are worldwide. Mycotoxic moulds generally attack the kernels of grain robbing the nutrients and lower the fat, protein and vitamin content of the grain. The mould also often changes the colour of the grains, the consistency/texture and often imparts an odour that causes feed refusal in animals. Aflatoxins are produced by ...

Poultry industry has emerged as the most dynamic and fastest expanding segment in animal husbandry sector with an annual growth rate of 6% in 1980's, 11% in 1990s, 19% in 1997-2002 and 6.2% during 2002-2006 in broiler chickens and 5-6% in egg production during this period in India. With an annual production (BAHS, 2010) of around 61.45 billion eggs (95.2% hen, 2.5% duck and 2.3% from other speci ...

INTRODUCTION Aflatoxin causes severe economic losses to the poultry industry. Aflatoxicosis that occurs from ingesting aflatoxins is characterized in broiler chickens by decreased feed intake and growth rate, poor feed utilization and mortality (Tedesco et al., 2004; Bailey et al., 2006; Shi et al., 2006). Aflatoxicosis is also associated with changes in biochemical and haematological parame ...

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 ...

Aspergillus spp. are primarily storage fungi and are found virtually everywhere in the world that produce aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 and G2) in feeds. Therefore, achieving complete inhibition of aflatoxin-producing fungus during storage of feed is of utmost importance. This study was conducted with the aim of establishing the efficacy of fumaric and citric acids as mould growth inhibitor in poultry fe ...

Saccharomyces cerevisiae (SC) has considerable binding capacity for aflatoxin (Galvano et al., 2001). Mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) derived from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was also reported to have high binding capacity (95%) for aflatoxin (Mahesh and Devegowda, 1996). The present investigation was undertaken to test the efficacy of SC and MOS in alleviating aflatoxicosis in broiler ...
